Essence Radar won the ESX Innovation Award in the Digital Health/Well-Being Systems category.
Essence Smart Care has developed a ground-breaking solution that immediately and accurately detects falls without the need for a wearable device. Essence Smart Care is part of Israel based Essence Group, a company that specializes in intelligent IoT and cybersecurity solutions for the monitored security, connected home and senior telecare markets.
Based on 3D imaging technology, normally used in upscale outdoor perimeter security applications, the indoor Radar Fall Detector is able to recognize when a person has fallen. Using AI, the device verifies that a fall has occurred and sends this information to the telecare service provider or directly to caregivers.
The Radar Fall Detector is triggered by a motion detector whenever there is movement in a room and continuously tracks the resident’s movements through the radar sensor. If there is a sudden change from a standing to lying position, the device uses its internal decision-making mechanism to determine if a fall has occurred and notifies care providers through the Care@Home PERS+ platform.
