Press release : Telegrafik: solutions to overcome the isolation of the elderly during quarantine, at home and in nursing homes (Ehpad)

Based on artificial intelligence, the Otono-me solutions for private homes and residential institutions for elderly dependent people (Ehpad), i.e. Nursing homes, help to overcome the isolation of the elderly during quarantine and to take over from caregivers.

In the current crisis, Telegrafik chooses to offer the Otono-me box to its new customers. The start-up has just announced that they have fund raised a 1 million euros to speed up its development. Telegrafik ensures the continuity of its services to install new devices at its customers’ premises, while respecting barrier gestures.

Otono-me: break the isolation at home and participate in taking over from the care staff in nursing homes

Our Otono-me system is proving to be a real alternative at a time where people are even more isolated than usual and where the amount of staff in healthcare institutions is often reduced.” , says Carole Zisa-Garat, founder of Telegrafik. “They allow us to watch over dependent people from a distance. 

Based on advanced algorithms, the Otono-me device installed in the living area allows the detection of any anomaly which reassures the family and sends alerts when intervention is necessary. A solution that, among other things, fosters support for elderly people at home, in the current context of nursing homes often finding themselves in a fragile state.

In the same way, Otono-me Edao is proving to be a real support for health care personnel in health care institutions. The solution alerts teams in the event of a problem and brings them some comfort and respite. “We are currently working on the detection of rapid changes in behaviour that can be induced by pathologies such as COVID-19. The studies are not complete yet but they look promising.” 

Strict measures to equip people at home or in care homes during Covid-19

To avoid taking any risks and to respect the health regulations in force, Telegrafik has strengthened its measures to be able to remotely equip homes or care homes.

In people’s homes, we have implemented strict procedures to set up our solutions, without coming into contact with dependent people.” , says Carole Zisa-Garat. In order to eliminate contact, gloves, masks, hydro-alcoholic gel and isolated intervention are all used when attending to occupants within the household.

In terms of care homes, Telegrafik relies on existing personnel for the installation of sensors. “We leave the equipment on the steps of the establishments and then guide the teams how to set it up, remotely of course” explains Carole Zisa-Garat.

Free services in several French departments

In several departments of France, Telegrafik participates in projects aimed at making its solutions available to the elderly free of charge, with a view to making its services accessible to as many people as possible. This is currently the case in Haute-Garonne and Seine-Saint-Denis. Families interested in the project can contact the Telegrafik teams directly.

To date, 4,000 people have benefited from Telegrafik solutions in France and Europe.

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.

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.
