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”.
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.
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.

Vivago and Telegrafik are combining their connected monitoring and automatic fall detection solutions to more effectively protect nursing home residents and immediately inform nursing staff. The benefits of this complete and innovative device for nursing homes are confirmed after installation in a second establishment.
The watch created by VIVAGO and Otono-me Nursing Homes EDAO: a complete solution for protecting the elderly in nursing homes
After the success of the first interconnected solution in 2016, a second establishment was equipped in early 2019.
“The combination of the two technologies improves the safety of residents and the working comfort of nursing staff,” says Carole Zisa-Garat, CEO of Telegrafik.
On Thursday 25 April, Telegrafik had the opportunity to explain to Cédric Villani, a French mathematician and politician who was awarded the Fields Medal in 2010, how artificial intelligence is enabling seniors to live more independently.
Telegrafik is a 15-person company specialising in the Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and the silver economy.
Our goal? To enable vulnerable or elderly people to stay independent for as long as possible in their own home, a seniors’ residence or a nursing home.
Telegrafik launches itself on the “Smart Care” market
Article published on 12 March 2019, Author: Anne-Marie Véziat
Having just returned from the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the Toulouse-based start-up Telegrafik has revealed its ambition to scale up this year by becoming a Smart Care player. ”Our technologies have proved their worth and since our inception in 2013, we have implemented sixty projects which have been validated by our partners,” says company president Carole Zisa-Garat.
“It’s time for us to scale up, structure our sales team by hiring four new sales representatives in the second half of the year, and seek new partners.” And presumably also to have a second fundraiser. The first took place in early 2017 and enabled the company to launch its initial solution, Otono-me, a warning and vigilance system for vulnerable people.

Telegrafik, the Artificial Intelligence in Care Services
Article published in the February edition 2019 Author: Juliette Viatte
Specialists in services relating to keeping elderly people at home and monitoring patients, the Start-Up Telegrafik launches their first “Nursing Home at home” in a few days. Founder Carole Zisa-Garat gives us more details.
The Silver Economy sector was relaunched on 22 October 2018 by Agnès Buzyn, French minister for Health and Solidarity. This was when the minister entrusted France Silver Eco to redraft a roadmap of the Silver Economy for the next two years.
The aim: speed up the process and put operational plans in place to broadcast potential practical solutions for vulnerable persons and their relatives as effectively as possible.
Keep reading to find out about the roadmap’s key points
1) The 3 cornerstones of the roadmap are to:
- Bring all active parties together.
- Popularise the Silver Economy.
- Facilitate the market release of existing services, making them known to the General Public more effectively.
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.
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.

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.
