We all want to stay independent as we age.  We want to live our lives without worrying about our health.  We want to know when we’re at risk before it’s too late.

 

THE PROMISE OF

PROACTIVE AGEING

Helios Health Systems is looking to address the immense costs and inadequate outcomes of care for an increasingly ageing population. The current modality of care being administered is based on point-in-time information that is often subjective, with little or no intervention until after an acute incident, like a fall, has occurred.  While many of us consider these incidents to happen all of a sudden, they are typically caused by a slow, gradual deterioration of function.


Our wearable technology provides continuous, objective information on the type and timing of daily activities conducted by older people so that carers, from family members through to clinicians, are alerted to any signs of functional change.  With Helios, carers can finally make proactive and preventative healthcare decisions for older people before a tragic incident occurs, and older people can feel safe and supported while enjoying their continued independence.
