Solution features patented real-time gesture detection technology

NEW YORK, March 10, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Somatix® Inc., an Artificial Intelligence (AI) software company which provides a Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) solution to healthcare providers, is pleased to announce that Elan Gardens, a personal care facility in Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, and Jewish Home of Eastern Pennsylvania, a leading provider of short-term rehabilitation and long-term skilled nursing care, have selected its SafeBeingä platform to ensure the well-being of their residents.  Somatix SafeBeing enables caregivers to continuously monitor and analyze seniors' daily routines in real-time using an enterprise dashboard, smartband, user mobile app, and a caretaker/family app.  The Jewish Home of Eastern Pennsylvania and its affiliated organizations are committed to develop and deliver customer-centric health and supportive programming and services to enhance the quality of life of older adults.

SafeBeing utilizes patented gesture detection technology, machine learning, and advanced analytics to detect hand movements and report on activities and events such as walking, sleeping, drinking, falling, smoking, wandering and a variety of insights and predictive analytics.  By monitoring these activities through SafeBeing, healthcare providers can detect variations in activities that may be cause for concern, and trigger reminders to users and alerts to caregivers and family members.

“We are very excited to be using the Somatix SafeBeing platform to help support the care and well-being of our residents at both Elan Gardens and Jewish Home of Eastern Pennsylvania,” said Mark D. Weiner, CEO of Jewish Home of Eastern Pennsylvania.  “The ease of use of the software, and no hardware installation, coupled with versatile wearable technology in the form of a band for our residents, made adopting the technology a quick and easy process.  Not only will our residents and caregivers have additional peace of mind, but family members will also have the ability to use the technology to check in on their loved ones.” 

“We are thrilled to be working with Elan Gardens and Jewish Home, which prioritize serving the individual needs of their residents while enabling them to retain their independence and lifestyle,” said Eran Ofir, CEO of Somatix.  “Use of the SafeBeing platform will enable caregivers to perform their duties more efficiently and effectively while also enhancing the privacy residents enjoy without compromising their quality of care.”
