CarePredict Wins CTA Foundation Accessibility Award
FORT LAUDERDALE, FL–CarePredict, the leading digital health company for senior care, has been selected as one of the five companies to win the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) Foundation’s Accessibility Contest at CES 2019.
The CTA Foundation is a national organization with the mission to link seniors and people with disabilities with technologies to enhance their lives. CarePredict is the first-to-market with an end-to-end AI-powered solution that predicts the onset of health conditions including fall risk, depression, and urinary tract infection (UTI) by continuously monitoring the daily activities and behavior patterns of senior adults.
“CarePredict is an example of how technology is enabling people to stay safe and secure in a non-intrusive manner,” said Stephen Ewell, executive director, CTA Foundation. “We are excited to have CarePredict as one of the CTA Foundation’s Eureka Park Accessibility winners at CES 2019 for their technology’s benefit to older adults.”
CarePredict employs lightweight sensors and wearables, designed for seniors, to unobtrusively and autonomously collect rich data sets on the senior’s activities and behaviors. Machine learning and unique kinematics algorithms are used to quantify activities performed by the senior. These activities include but are not limited to drinking, eating, sleeping, walking, and grooming.
These unique data sets are used to train CarePredict’s deep neural network to surface insights such as signs and symptoms of self-neglect indicative of depression, unusual toileting patterns indicative of a urinary tract infection (UTI), or increased fall risk due to malnutrition, gait changes, lack of rest, and dehydration. All of these insights are generated without any self-reporting by the senior and without the need for an in-person observation.
“With over 600M people worldwide over the age of 65 years and a rapidly diminishing caregiving population, technology like ours is efficiently bridging the gap and ensuring that our loved ones get the constant, quality care they need and deserve,” said Satish Movva, CEO and founder, CarePredict. “CTA Foundation’s Accessibility award is a validation of the importance of technology in enabling independence of people of all ages and we are honored to be recognized as one among the five breakthrough technologies improving senior care.”
CarePredict is a pioneering AI-driven digital health company with locations in Fort Lauderdale, FL and Menlo Park, CA. CarePredict develops proprietary connected remote sensing technologies including wearables incorporating machine learning with unique algorithms, and sensors that continuously observe, learn, and trigger just-in-time care for seniors aging in group living or at home.
Powered by deep learning nets trained on data gathered over five years, CarePredict is producing actionable early detection of activity and behavior patterns that are precursors to potential UTIs, depression and fall risk. These insights are served up via user-friendly multilingual dashboards on apps to enable caregivers to provide preventative, person-centered senior care.
