Why Telegrafik lets you focus on your job: supporting your elderly patients or residents

When we come to set up a smart solution in a residence for senior citizens or a nursing home, we often say to you: “Focus on your job, we’ll take care of the technical side of things”.

Why?

Because we are committed to offering you Telegrafik’s comprehensive service. An appointed representative, an involved team, and most importantly, fully functioning devices for fall detection or preventing loss of autonomy.
From installation to commissioning, we set up everything you need for a service of the highest quality. Then, day and night, we ensure your solution continues to work: you receive alerts when a resident is struggling or needs to be seen by a doctor, and your data is recorded and analysed. We provide you with customer service and ensure your solution receives regular maintenance. In addition, we update your installation if your needs change.

Design your IoT projects and get them up and running with Telegrafiklab

Telegrafik is the ideal partner to help you design your customised IoT projects and put them into practice. We support you at each stage of your projects with the help of Agile software development: DESIGN & THINK, TEST & LEARN and BUILD & RUN. The aim: Better respond to your customers’ needs in order to generate growth drivers and better profitability.

Here we have some feedback from a project with an insurance company, covering the first two phases: DESIGN & THINK and TEST & LEARN.

The idea: In practice, design and test a consumer solution designed to prevent loss of autonomy

Step 1 of the project consisted of defining the idea. To do this, we worked hand in hand with our partner’s teams. The aim: to have a precise vision of the needs of an insurance company and of the service expected by those it insures.

The chosen solution had to meet the following characteristics in particular, to be:

– accessible to the largest number of people, the general public, with high added value for carers
– attractive to a target audience of families with an elderly relative living alone at home
– able to alert carers automatically if there is a problem (e.g. falling, fainting) in their relative’s accommodation
– easily integrated into the care home
– a personalised smart-home system with a photo holder

We have chosen an idea that brings together safety monitoring, social bond and family communication:

Discreet sensors are installed in the elderly person’s accommodation. The carers can monitor the progression of the person’s daily activity through a smartphone application. They receive an alert in the event of a problem.

Plus, 1 to 3 photographs of the family sent by post every month.

Then the development was launched.
At the end of three months, the beta version solution was available.

This beta version included:

  • Android, iOS and web applications allowing carers to view what their relative is doing in their home and to send them photographs which are then printed and mailed.
  • a specific development with technology building blocks (bricks) enabling SMS alerts to be sent to the appropriate person at the right time in the event of a problem.
  • the physical design of a box containing the home automation part of the service and acting as a photo frame for the elderly person.

The solution was then implemented within families so that it could be tested in real conditions. For this step, families with an elderly relative living alone had to be recruited. We set up the service with elderly people and we ran it for four months.

At the end of this stage of the test, we sent out a qualitative satisfaction survey so as to have feedback on the service that was as precise as possible.

Feedback from families was very positive and the smartphone application was voted for by carers. In fact, 80% of carers used the application. They found this tool really useful and some used it daily to check that their relative’s activity was normal.

Testimonials: “It’s good to know if  she is at home, or if she has gone out for the day or longer...I can see how long she has spent in her room with just a quick glance”

Finally, more than half of carers were prepared to pay to continue using the service.

The “Nursing Home at home” explained

The Nursing Home at home is a device allowing dependent elderly people to benefit from the technology available in Nursing Homes in the comfort of their own. The aim: allow people to continue to grow old in the comfort of their own home in complete safety, preventing potentially dangerous situations.

In fact, the desire for care at home is shared by seniors and their carers, but also by the State, as shown by the French Act on adapting society to an ageing population (ASV), from the 28 December 2015, which places an emphasis on care at home for the elderly.

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!

Telegrafik idea

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.

An innovative solution that promotes support within the home for vulnerable people, ensuring their complete safety

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.

3 SOLUTIONS TO MAKE HOME CARE ASSISTANCE EASIER

Article from 15 February 2018

Otono-me and autonomy

Knowing that their nearest and dearest are keeping an eye on them can be reassuring for elderly people living alone. That’s what Toulouse-based company offers, thanks to its Otono-me device: five motion sensors, dispersed around the house, allow for an individual’s activity to be monitored in real time. The data collected can be accessed by family members from a mobile application. In the event of an anomaly, such as prolonged absence, the system attempts to reach the resident and sends an SMS to their family members to keep them informed of the situation.
