Demographic changes are creating exciting new demands for practical technologies in the health care space, particularly in the area of aging in place. Over 76 million Baby Boomers have begun turning senior, and over 54 million of them are already caregivers to elderly family and loved ones.
We chose MiOS for its reliability, the support, and because it was able to work so seamlessly with our entire product line.” – Gary German, CEO Nonnatech
Nonnatech saw an opportunity to create affordable, easily deployable solutions that would allow seniors to age in place comfortably, while at the same time allowing their caretakers new levels of involvement and peace of mind. Utilizing a variety of affordable sensors and controllers powered by the MiOS operating system and Z-wave, Nonnatech has created a wellness ecosystem that allows the elderly to live independently while keeping their caretakers closer, even when they’re far away.
“MiOS has helped expand our ability to provide a solution for seniors to age in place,” says Gary German, CEO of Nonnatech. “With it, we are able to detect and prevent falls and wandering, monitor medication side effects and sedentary behavior, and notify caregivers of changes in activities of daily living. The platform has helped us to provide a hands-free solution for seniors and their caregivers, and enabled us to bring products to market only a few months after signing our OEM agreement.”
