Powered by IBM Cloud and Analytics Technologies, Solution Helps Keep Older Adults and the Vulnerable Safe During Social Isolation
London, UK, April 16, 2020 – UK predictive care management start up Karantis360 is now offering its innovative at-home monitoring solution at cost price to assist caregivers in keeping older adults and the vulnerable safe during the COVID-19 crisis.
Karantis360 uses sensors to keep a watchful eye on the daily activities of at risk older adults and vulnerable people being cared for in their own home. Running on the IBM Cloud, the solution uses IBM’s AI and advanced analytics to identify and learn an individual’s typical behaviour based on movement, temperature and humidity readings. Through a mobile app, Karantis360 helps to provide reassurance to caregivers and family members who have access to a more complete picture of the wellbeing of the person being looked after and can be alerted to changes in normal daily routine which could point to a potential problem.
There is now an urgency to ensure individuals, who are impacted by social isolation, can be monitored for indicators of risks to continued health, due to the current threats of exposure to COVID-19.

This not only helps to free up much- needed hospital beds, but also drastically reduces the risk of cross-infection.
The solution, which is available across Europe, the USA, Hong Kong and China, has already been installed by a number of public-sector and private care providers in the UK including, York City Council and Consultus Care & Nursing. In Italy, care provider Sole Cooperativa is using the Karantis360 solution to monitor the health of individuals living inside one of its social living facilities.
