Time to assess the 3Pegase project, benefiting elderly people with diminishing autonomy
Launched in 2015, the 3Pegase consortium, grouping together 6 industrial entities, has been working on the development of a system to prevent the loss of autonomy and to provide a follow-up service for frail elderly people.
Today, 3years after its launch,3Pegase signals the end of its project, issuing a very positive initial assessment which points to a larger-scale clinical study being conducted.
It was at the initiative of Telegrafik, a company specialising in home-support connected services for frail persons and in patient telemonitoring, that this project was created.
One objective: to provide frail elderly persons with a secure environment and to be able to monitor them more efficiently when they returned home after a period of hospitalisation.
3Pegase: anticipating the recurrent problem issues facing senior patients
It was in the context of the Easy Novcall for projects with the Midi-Pyrénées Regional Council, that the Gerontology Unit at the Toulouse University Hospital, the Toulouse IT Research Institute, Orange, Telegrafik, Telemedicine Technologies and Serena joined forces within aconsortium to implement the 3Pegase project (Predictive Platformfor Elderly People and Assistance). Its main aim was to propose a monitoring solution for patients at home.

Otono-me innovative remote assistance: the solution for vulnerable or elderly people living at home
The French population is continuing to age. INSEE (the National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies) revealed that by 2050, one person in three will be over 60 . The people who will reach the age of 60 by 2050 are all already born. Longer life expectancies will only continue to increase in the years to come.
The existing solution for providing safety for elderly people at home is remote assistance with a call button. It means that they will receive assistance if they suffer a fall or are taken ill, for example. Unfortunately, elderly people sometimes refuse to wear their call button or don’t activate it in the event of an accident.
Otono-me, the innovative remote assistance that finally offers a real answer for elderly people who are losing their independence
FALLS IN SENIORS: WHAT ARE THE SOLUTIONS?
Hard, soft… there are so many qualifiers when it comes to talking about falls in the elderly depending on whether the person falls suddenly or slips against a wall or leans on a chair before falling.
Here are some figures that show the need to prevent these falls:
- They are the number one cause of death in elderly people
- 20% require hospitalisation
- 9% cause a fracture (mostly of the femur neck)
- 40% of elderly people are referred to specialist institutions after a fall
These falls affect one in three seniors over the age of 65 each year.
Telemedecine Technologies and Telegrafik announce their collaboration
Telegrafik announces its collaboration with Telemedicine Technologies SA, a collaborative software publisher in e-Health and leader in the field of Clinical Research.
After a successful first collaboration as part of the 3PEGASE project to monitor vulnerable elderly people living at home and prevent their loss of independence, Telemedicine Technologies and Telegrafik are sealing their partnership.
Telegrafik’s intelligent sensor data analysis platform is now linked to Telemedicine Technologies’ CleanWEB solution and integrates the TECH-Alliance.
Through this partnership, Telegrafik can make its cutting-edge data processing and algorithmic expertise available to Clinical Research via the CleanWEB platform.

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.

Otono-me Edao EHPAD (residential home for the elderly), the only risk situation detection solution validated by a Hospital Clinical Research Program
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.

Are seniors thriving?
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.

THE SOLUTION FOR MAINTAINING AUTONOMY IN SENIOR RESIDENCES
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.

Digital and other new technology helping with ageing at home
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.

How did Telegrafik come into being?
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.

Telegrafik meets seniors’ expectations at the Hauts-de-Seine hackathon
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.
A new home care service approved by seniors in the French department of Aisne!
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
