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.
