Feedback: Otono-me – The connected solution for watching over a family member remotely.

At Telegrafik, we are committed to bringing real added value to care for elderly and vulnerable people by guaranteeing safety for them and peace of mind for their families on a daily basis. In several French departments (mainland and overseas), we are deploying projects aimed at making our solutions available to senior citizens free of charge on a trial basis for several months, in order to make our services accessible to as many people as possible. It is against this background that Rosa M. chose to protect her mother-in-law with Otono-me and told us about her experience as a caregiver.

To keep our seniors healthy.

“[…] we are working on possibilities, this time in conjunction with digital technology, to keep our seniors in good health. Not only those who are dependent, but also those patients who are a bit fragile: being able to identify them at that moment. We need to be innovative with this large population, and as we have strong expertise in terms of both doctors and nurses, […] we also need to equip ourselves with tools and solutions such as those of Telegrafik, to optimize monitoring.

Agile, expert, with solid references.

“With Telegrafik, we became interested in the recording of lifestyle habits because the system was at maturity on the market, with an opposable offer and a structure that ensures maintenance and technicality that we were able to verify over time. […] Telegrafik seemed to us to be agile, expert, with solid references since they had also worked with IMA (InterMutuelle Assistance). They have technical and scientific profiles that we feel are perfectly suited to us and they have the ability to work with professional teams, which to date corresponds to our needs.

Artificial intelligence to detect the fragilities.

“[…] it is necessary to have a general approach to maintaining health in the home: this involves providing solutions with new technologies to ensure a certain number of constants and to anticipate, with the possibility of detecting weak signals, to alert us, as Telegrafik proposes with its Artificial Intelligence to detect fragilities.

So there is this important prevention aspect, and it’s true that the Ehpador Nursing Home is also a living place, it’s not necessarily because we enter the Ehpad that we stay there definitively […]

Automatic temperature reading: a tool for EHPADs

When the national heatwave plan is activated, action must be taken to prevent and limit the effects of the heatwave on people’s health.

In residential establishments for dependent elderly people (EHPAD), in establishments accommodating elderly people (EHPA) (retirement home, residential home), and in long-term care units, the monitoring and alert plan is based on the implementation of a “blue plan”.

Residents accompanied by EHPAD staff must then adopt the good habits regularly broadcast by the Regional Health Agencies: drink about 1.5L of water per day, spend time in a cool place, eat a sufficient amount.

Press release : Silver Economy: Study “Ageing well in Retirement Homes and at Home – Which innovative technologies for what added value ?”

Maintien à domicile

This study highlights the added value provided by technological solutions for both professionals and families, and underlines their complementarity with the human support already available to elderly people. 83% of elderly people report feeling more reassured. The loved ones gain peace of mind on a daily basis.

The study covered 3 years of practical study and a representative sample of beneficiaries spread throughout France. It provides concrete and enlightening feedback for those involved in the process of ageing well.

The objective is to provide elements of answers to the major societal challenge of ageing: How can we better support elderly people throughout their ageing process and support professionals in the sector in their work, using innovative technologies ?, explains Carole Zisa-Garat, President of Telegrafik.

This document summarises the issues specific to the ageing of elderly people, reviews the current technological solutions also discusses the adoption of these schemes by the beneficiaries and their families.

 Testimonials from customers and partners

The satisfaction surveys carried out among the equipped beneficiaries and the figures collected in the framework of this study made it possible to identify the various advantages of the solutions connected to help elderly people: to react quickly in the event of a fall, to postpone moving into a nursing home, to prevent the deterioration of the beneficiary’s state of health and, most importantly, to save lives.

Partners of the company participated in this survey to testify about their experience with Telegrafik and explain the contribution of connected solutions to their business. Mentalities are changing, the young old people of today will be the old people of tomorrow, and they are people used to all the new technologies and therefore more demanding of this type of solution., explains Sandrine Taffary, nurse coordinator at the Saint-Louis nursing home.

How can physical activity preserve pensioner’s independence ?

Regular physical activity does not guarantee that all the changes in your health due to ageing will disappear. On the other hand, it is essential to maintaining good health throughout life.  Doing sport regularly helps to limit and slow down the loss of physical capacities, even to the point of postponing the risk of a person becoming dependent in later life by 10 to 12 years.  Even if you start doing it later in life, it still ensures that you have a greater chance of growing old in good health and thus preserving your independence for as long as possible.

Une activité physique pour repousser la dépendance

 

Older people sometimes prefer to avoid sporting activities for fear of causing incidents that could aggravate their state of health, such as the risk of falling, or aggravate their state of fatigue. But as surprising as it may seem, it’s good to know that sport and age go hand in hand. However, it is strongly advised to choose a sporting activity that suits your physical condition and to practice it regularly.

Since the beginning of the health crisis, Telegrafik has been supporting healthcare institutions and making its solutions available to them, some of them free of charge. As a result, the Clerc de Molières nursing home in Tarascon has benefited from Sunday Play, an application that allows residents to stay connected with their families by receiving news via photos and videos.

 

After three weeks of use, the application was very popular with residents, but also with professionals, “…Today our residents and their families can’t do without it”, explains Clémence Battista, from the EHPAD’s activities department.
