IoT innovator KORE and Curo, an Australia-based healthtech company, are now coming together for a partnership that will introduce a streamlined app for seniors that will provide "IoT-based autonomy."
While older age groups may shy away from automated technologies, seniors could benefit tremendously from embracing IoT technologies. The app facilitates data-sharing between a senior and a family or caregiver, using sensors to track the motions of a solo resident within the home. While this might seem invasive, it is a health and safety tool that could potentially be life-saving in the case of a medical emergency.
There are numerous wearbles that transmit senior data in the same way, but this system does not need to be physically worn on the body to boost independence and autonomy at home.
