Kytera is the modern, technologically advanced progression of the panic buttons used by millions of seniors today. Rather than requiring that the senior actively participate in calling for aid (like when pressing a button,) Kytera combines a connected wristband with sensors to automatically detect an emergency or distress situation and send seniors help right away.

Once set up, the Kytera wristband is in constant communication with five easy-to-install sensors that are placed at strategic points around a senior's home. The wristband and sensors use indoor GPS to keep tabs on the user's location in the home, meaning that no internet connection is necessary.

The system incorporates advanced machine learning into its analysis of emergencies. For example, over time it learns the user's daily routines, and it can reliably detect deviations from those routines that could suggest a distress situation.
