Another activity area is healthcare economy. Especially the »smart home« area and assistance systems, in order to facilitate a self-determined and safe staying for the elderly in their familiar homes as long as arguable. Currently, smartwatches are about to redefine the frontiers of what is possible here.
Smart home denotes a mega trend, where cross-linked intelligent sensors and actuators actively control the energy efficiency of a household as well as security, comfort and entertainment for the inhabitants. Supporting health and wellbeing especially for elderly rsp. persons requiring nursing care in a household also gains importance as an additional segment of the smart home. The central issue of ambient assisted living is to support a self-determined and safe living of such persons in their familiar home by technical means until the high age - as long as this can be justified from a medical perspective.
Special relevance is given to this topic by the fact that already in 2013 more than 1.25 million persons in Germany requiring care (out of 2.63 million) have been nursed exclusively by family members at home. Annually, about 300,000 new cases of dementia have to be registered in Germany, with currently about 1.5 million persons suffering from dementia in total. Also, these person continue to live at home in the early phases of their illness. Here, assistance systems can effectively support care-giving family member and mobile nursing servicess in their responsible and demanding task. You find more details on this topic on our special page.
We are actively working on the development of this future-oriented business segment of assistance systems, as well on the technical concept as on suitable business models. With the new innovative smartwatches, mobile computers worn on your wrist, the service scope of stationary assistance systems will be effectively increased and expanded to activities on the go.
