Having already won the BPI France Digital Innovation Contest in 2017, the Colomiers-based start-up Telegrafik has just received the Futurapolis Le Point Contest’s Connected Objects Award. This distinction rewards a recent but convincing solution for independence among the elderly.
“Our goal is to postpone moving into a retirement home for 12 to 18 months,” says Carole Zisa-Garat, CEO of the young company that employs 15 people at its Semidias premises at Perget and in its Parisian office. “Once people are in a routine, we watch over them in the event of a fall or a change in behaviour.”
Thanks to the Otono-me remote assistance service, the start-up uses artificial intelligence to serve human well-being. A caring attentiveness that detects anomalies and alerts the elderly person’s relatives or the emergency services if necessary. Sensors installed in the rooms of the elderly person’s house alert an operator, in a monitoring centre 24/7. Thanks to an intercom, a verbal exchange can even take place without the person being able to reach a telephone.

At the end of 2016, there were about 728,000 people in France living in EHPADs, for a total of 6,884 registered EHPADs. In addition, an EHPAD resident has an average of 2 falls/year and 50% of nocturnal falls go undetected. Finally, the longer a resident spends on the ground, the greater the “post-fall” associated pathologies and the costs to the community.
In this context, an independent assessment of great methodological reliability was carried out in the Limousin region on 550 patients for 3 years. 3 EHPADs were equipped with the solution in two parallel groups: a group of equipped patients and another unequipped group.
The Point Futurapolis innovation festival surveys innovative companies with high growth potential every year! In this year’s edition, the spotlight is on Internet of Things, Artificial Intelligence, Data Processing and Cyber Security.
This prize rewards the work of Telegrafik who strives every day to bring the latest innovations of Internet of Things to the service of aging well at home and in institutions!
82%: the percentage of seniors who are fully satisfied with the life they lead1.
How old do you have to be to define yourself as a “senior”?
Seniors define themselves as such from the age of 641. In comparison, in 2017, individuals defined themselves as “seniors” from the age of 67.
In general, people over the age of 55 feel like seniors once they retire. As long as they are still working, only 24% fit into this category of the population.

Senior residences are accommodations for autonomous, non-disabled or semi-disabled people who are over 60 years of age. This type of accommodation is an excellent way for seniors to break the isolation by fostering social relationships while keeping their autonomy.
The staff of the residence accompany the residence’s seniors on a daily basis. Their mission: organize activities for the residents and support them when needed.
The telecare company Tavie launches Tavie Otono-me, a protection system adapted to lonely and frail people. This innovative remote assistance allows them to live as long as possible in their own homes, in complete security.
Tavie Otono-me, a new product serving the growth of Tavie
Along with the launch of this new product, Tavie, a French national company strongly anchored in the regions of Bordeaux and in the South of the Gironde, are hiring, and announced the signing of 2 new partnerships.
« Tavie Otono-me will contribute to the growth of our business by enabling us to meet the needs of families, who are increasingly on the look out for intelligent solutions capable of automatically detecting problems faced by frail family members»“, explains Julie Castet, president of Tavie.
The solution is of particular interest for people with memory impairments, or people with Alzheimer’s disease who will not think to use their emergency call medallion.

New technology will contribute more and more to home support services for elderly or vulnerable people.
Here are 3 concrete examples of what it can bring.
The example of safety
The majority of families have heard of remote assistance devices with an emergency call button to be carried on one’s person, which can be pressed for rescue in the event of a problem.
These devices can now be supplemented by sensors, installed in the casing, that enable remote monitoring of activity.

Every one of us knows an elderly person living alone at home.
Carole Zisa-Garat was worried about her grandmother and wanted her to be able to live at home safely for as long as possible. This is what gave her the idea for Telegrafik!
In 2013, she decided to use new technology to make it easier for elderly people to stay at home, set up the Telegrafik company and launch the Otono-me service.
The service now protects hundreds of elderly people and reassures their loved ones on a daily basis.
“Telegrafik’s values: freedom, ethics and independence.”
How does Otono-me work?
Sensors make it possible to detect any unusual behaviour patterns in an elderly person’s routine. If they fall or become unwell, an alert is automatically sent to an assistance platform, which contacts them.
Friends and relatives can download the smartphone app and take care of their loved one every day.

On 21 and 22 June, Pierre and Robin from the Telegrafik team proposed their solutions to the challenge of improving the quality of services offered to independent seniors! Organised by the Funding Conference of the Hauts-de-Seine department for preventing the loss of independence among elderly people, this hackathon took place in a context where a quarter of residents in Hauts-de-Seine will be over 60 years old by 2040.
A fine way for Telegrafik to close its 2017 project conducted in Hauts-de-Seine where 50 vulnerable people living alone at home were equipped with the Otono-me service, and to consider future steps to protect the department’s seniors in 2018.
The Otono-me service protected 100 seniors in the Aisne department in 2017, including this 80-year-old who was rescued last December: “It’s thanks to you that I’m still here, I wanted to say thank you!”
In 2018, a hundred more seniors will be able to safely continue living at home thanks to this innovation. The Onoto-me app also brings their loved ones peace of mind.
The Otono-me service responds effectively to the needs of elderly people and their loved ones
The ELAN Law (On the scalability of housing, development and digital technology) establishes the need for scalability and digital technology
Telegrafik and Vivalib combine their expertise to provide a package of services to meet these challenges and announce their partnership
This package of services allows living spaces designers and administrators to define how they wish to change their programmes on the one hand and supports them in the implementation of these developments on the other.
The SeptuORs trophy was presented to the team yesterday at the Cité de l’Espace in Toulouse, in the presence of the representatives from the region of Occitania, Toulouse Métropole and the “La Dépêche” group.
The current situation in France is increasingly conducive to the development of home care. Between the shift to ambulatory care initiated by the Ministry of Health and the reduction in the average length of a stay in hospital, the role of the liberal professions, particularly nursing, has become paramount.
Despite the development of this post-hospitalisation activity, 12% of hospital emergencies are due to a lack of home care… even though 350,000 health professionals (excluding doctors) in France practice in the home!

As part of a call for projects, the Funding Conference of the Ariège department has chosen Occitania-based company Telegrafik and its innovative teleassistance service, Otono-me. The goal? To offer 30 elderly people aged 60 and over, living alone at their homes in Ariège, to test the Otono-me service for 8 months free of charge.
The association of local experts for preventing loss of autonomy and promoting home care in Occitania
The service will be offered in collaboration with “Le Cantou”, an association offering services to individuals based in Tarascon sur Ariège. Much more reassuring than conventional emergency call devices, this new generation teleassistance provides day and night protection for the elderly and peace of mind for their families. Read more
If these questions are being asked, it is often because loss of autonomy has begun to rear its head.
What elements should be taken into account in making the right decision?
1. Stay in your home for as long as possible
It is often the favoured solution with families, provided the person still has a sufficient degree of autonomy.
It is often necessary to call in extra help for care or housekeeping tasks that will facilitate getting up, going to bed, grooming, personal hygiene (excluding nursing care), or ensuring the preparation and feeding of meals, general domestic tasks.
Sophia Antipolis based company, Allovie, and its partner Telegrafik are launching Allovie Otono-me, which aims to reinforce the autonomy of ageing persons in the home. This new remote assistance solution, based on motion detectors installed in the home, allows for increased safety of vulnerable people who live alone, while also keeping them in touch with their loved ones.
Allovie Otono-me brings together the expertise from two areas: remote assistance and data analysis
Allovie specialises in remote assistance all over France and, for over ten years, has been a supplier of a solution, which includes a watch and a pendant allowing the detection of a variety of dangerous situations at an ageing person’s home, triggering an alarm if needed. The person is put in touch with an operator 24/7 should they suffer a dizzy spell, an accident, a fall, or simply because they need to talk to someone or be reassured.
In 2017, the department of Aisne funding body launched an appeal calling for projects aimed at developing preventative measures to benefit people aged 60 or over and resident in their local territory.
Telegrafik had been selected, and is now seeing a very positive outcome from the actions that were undertaken.
The innovative Otono-me remote assistance service was very widely accepted by the persons equipped with the system. They remarked on having forgotten very quickly that the sensors had been installed in their home.
