'Safebed' is a contact-free wellness tracker that was just debuted by 'Emfit' at CES 2016. In recent years, many companies have developed products that help seniors live on their own for longer. However, these devices can be problematic if they need to be carried or turned on and off throughout the day.

Safebed provides an alternative to wearable safety trackers with an automated device that is entirely contact-free. Unlike other wellness trackers, Safebed is discrete and undetectable. The device itself is a durable sensor that is placed under a user's mattress. The sensor then provides health and wellness information by tracking the individual's sleep quality, heart rate and breathing rate. The device can even sense if an individual has fallen and not returned to their bed. This information can then be shared with loved ones in the form of push notifications or e-mails.

The device ultimately helps seniors live independently by helping family members stay informed about their health and wellbeing.
