Ally - Smart Home Care
This project aims to demonstrate the technical feasibility and benefits of an in-home early warning system for detecting increased frailty in elderly individuals. The product, Ally, consists of a hub and peripheral. The hub plugs into a central area of the older person’s home while a secondary peripheral is attached to their keys. These two products work together to track daily living patterns – identifying unusual changes in routing and alerting carers to immedate and potential health concerns via a mobile app, including sharp declines in health like worsening dementia or the early onset of flu. The project makes use of Eddy Labs’ existing audio recognition technology, adapting it to provide daily routine monitoring for early detection of potential health problems.
