Samsung & Mybitat to give elderly independence at home

Companies hand in hand for smart home solution that will call for help automatically.


Samsung and Mybitat will partner to develop a solution that will enable the elderly to live longer, and independently, at home and to improve their quality of life.

The technology will monitor an individual’s daily routine and wellness using advanced sensors, cloud-based software and behaviour analytics.

Mybitat’s IoT portfolio and Samsung’s Strategy and Innovation Center (SSIC) will work on an automated system that will recognise changes in behaviour or health and alert remote caregivers if assistance is required.

Curtis Sasaki, vice president Ecosystem Development, SSIC, said: "Samsung believes the senior population can benefit from new technologies to improve their quality of life.

"Our work with Mybitat has the potential to make key elements of the ageing process significantly easier on individuals and families."

Mati Kochavi, Mybitat founder said: "We believe current systems for managing ageing require significant improvement.

"We want to redefine these systems and offer affordable options that open up new possibilities for ageing individuals.
