A small start-up that makes home monitoring systems for the elderly is allowing them to stay at home even when they may be fragile or lack motility. The system consists of a number of motion sensors as well as a weight pad (to see when they’re sleeping) and a panic button that notifies the authorities and kin if there’s something wrong.
According to TechCrunch, BeClose monitors sleep patterns, movement, and even weight. If grandma is not getting out of bed or leaving the house too little or too much, you know.
