Wisole is a smart insole that has life-saving abilities. This device provides vital assistance if an accident happens to elderly people and helps them maintain a healthy lifestyle. Wisole creates a better and safer everyday environment for the aging population.
Through the technology of Artificial Intelligence (AI) combined with the Internet of things (IoT), Wisole monitors your daily movements (e.g. sitting, standing, walking, jumping or even falling) and provides health recommendations via a complementary mobile app.
Consider an elderly person who suddenly falls and loses consciousness. Immediate medical treatment would be crucial. However, if they were unconscious, they would be unable to call for help. In these all too common situations, their only hope is that a caregiver will find them as soon as possible. Clearly, after an accident has occurred, any method that can instantly notify caregivers might save lives.
The first innovation is that Wisole can automatically detect when the elderly fall and then alert the caregiver immediately via push notification. The second innovation is that Artificial Intelligent algorithms will analyze the daily movements of the elderly. Through this analysis, Wisole can provide personalized health recommendations and pre-detect life-threatening conditions such as high blood pressure or stroke - even before people show the clinical symptoms.
Other Wisole innovations are that you can set different notifications for different movements/events. The value of the movement data can also be further developed by collaborating with other companies/organizations, such as hospitals or insurance companies. Hence, Wisole has boundless potential.
