Beschreibung der Veranstaltung:

Four million people are in need of care. In Germany alone. Due to the aging of society, experts estimate this number to grow another 30% until the year 2030. At the same time, we face a decline in caregivers with dramatic consequences for the most vulnerable people in our society. Thus, providing high-quality care with less personal becomes an even bigger challenge. tackles this challenge with an intelligent device that can be applied like a plaster. The sensor of the system tracks important data like activity and location and informs professional caregivers as well as non-professional helpers if a patient needs help, e.g. if an elderly person falls or a patient suffering from dementia gets lost. Doing so, connects everyone involved in taking care of patients in need – enabling family members to do their best and saving professional resources at the same time. With their concept, the team of won the EY Public Value Award for Start-ups 2018! Meet at our StartUp-Event and learn more about the system and the technology behind it, the public and economic value they are creating, and check out the prototype. After the presentation, we will discuss the topic within our interdisciplinary health hacker community (physicians, caregivers, engineers, programmers, students, and hackers). This event is part of the lecture “New technologies and methods for the future of healthcare”.
