— Leveraging technology to increase quality of life for seniors and their family and friends.
Doro wanted to leverage technology and service-as-a-product to revolutionize social care as more seniors live independently at home.
An entire ecosystem for an end-to-end digital solution which is self-calibrating to individual behavior and can detect and automatically share alarms with relatives or care providers in real time.
For most seniors, their mobile phone is the only tool for reaching out for help if an accident occurs, but seniors don´t always have their phone at hand. This creates a strong demand for new and trustworthy solutions to help, support and stay in contact with seniors at home. According to a survey conducted by Doro, 25 percent of UK adults have some duty of care towards a senior person and 62 percent of these say they are often worried that something might have happened to them such as suffering a fall or hurting themselves.
Smartcare by Doro comes with a home gateway and smart sensors which are connected to My Doro, the unified cloud service. From there, it can connect the sensors with smartphones and units that belong to care providers, relatives, and seniors. The system is self-calibrating to individual behavior and can detect and automatically share alarms with relatives or care providers in real time. SmartCare by Doro is based upon an open architecture system to cater for connectivity with third party sensors and devices.
In practice, this means that if a person falls on the stairs at home, the sensor automatically detects the fall. It then notifies relatives, the Doro Alarm Receiving Center or other third-parties, who in turn can contact the senior or call for action from care providers or emergency services. Thanks to the My Doro cloud service, relatives and care providers receive notifications, warnings and alarms on activities in the home such as “the refrigerator has not been opened in the last 24 hours” or “the front door hasn’t been closed correctly”.
“The launch of SmartCare by Doro is a milestone and an important strategic move for our business. We know that seniors want to stay at home and be independent for as long as possible and SmartCare by Doro is developed with this in mind. By offering complete systems and devices that make life easier for both seniors and their supporting family and friends we aim to extend the time seniors will be able to live at home and also contribute to a sustainable development of social welfare.”
