CarePredict secures CES 2021 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Health and Wellness category.
FREMONT, CA: CarePredict, the pioneering AI-Powered Digital Health platform for senior care, announces that its remote activity monitoring app CarePredict TouchPoint selected a CES 2021 Innovation Awards Honoree in the Health and Wellness category. The CES Innovation Awards program, owned and produced by the Consumer Technology Association, is an annual competition honoring outstanding design and engineering in consumer technology products across 28 product categories. This is the third CES award that CarePredict has got in the past three years. CarePredict's smart wearable, Tempo, was selected as a CES 2020 Innovations Award Honoree, and CarePredict was named the winner of the Consumer Technology Association's (CTA) Accessibility Award CES 2019.
CarePredict TouchPoint offers peace of mind to families and caregivers by delivering continuous visibility into their senior loved one's well-being. It is a companion app to CarePredict's Tempo, a unique smart wearable developed exclusively for seniors. Tempo is the world's first wearable that autonomously tracks subtle changes in a senior's daily activity and behavior patterns that may precede increased risk for urinary tract infections, depression, malnutrition, mild cognitive impairment, and falls. TouchPoint displays the data gathered by the Tempo in an easy-to-understand, intuitive interface and alerts families and others in the senior's Care Circle about concerning trends such as missed meals, restless sleep, or increased sedentary behaviors. It enables Care Circle members to see how their loved one is doing overtime and coordinate care through the app's built-in communication features. Tempo can identify most falls and alerts Care Circle members, who can then check-in using the built-in two-way audio to offer reassurance while waiting for assist o arrive. The senior can also press the button on their wrist-worn Tempo to speak to any Care Circle members.
Even before the pandemic, older adults were aging away from their families, and the challenge families faced was in knowing how they were doing. TouchPoint is not just offering peace of mind for families. Still, it is a critical link in today's socially isolated world that enables older adults to stay connected with their families and friends with the simple press of a button.
