As a consequence of improvements in medical care and extension of life expectancy the population of people over 60 is increasing radically, while the number of those over 80 increases even faster. This population number is today close to 1 Billion and is expected to double until 2050. Preventive and proactive care is necessary to fulfil commitments of Governments and HMOs, who collected during decades of payments for Health insurance. The market is valuated over 400 Billion US$ in US alone.
The Pain: About half of this population suffers from Frailty Symptoms, which cause falls, as well as other elderly diseases, which require long term hospitalization in Nursing Homes.
PerlisCareTM monitoring system detects changes in moving behavior and ADL and enables caregivers to prevent the hospitalization
The economic burden on Governments and Health Insurance Companies grows exponentially and it is vital to reduce/ control the number of elders, who require care, while keeping this population
independent as long as possible. Independent elders pay insurance, while others consume it. To ease the burden of treating elderly diseases in their active stages, there is a need of a fully autonomous predictive tool, which will provide decision makers early detection of degradation, when cure may help, to take proactive/ preventive actions.
