LiveFreely Launches “BUDDY,” the Predictive-AI Health Management and Remote Monitoring Technology, for Seniors and Their Advocates

SAN JOSE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

The BUDDY app addresses the most critical health issues seniors face, from predicting falls to monitoring for irregular health patterns and impeding wandering

LiveFreely, Inc., a Silicon Valley digital health company developing innovative technology to improve the health and well-being of seniors and individuals suffering from chronic illnesses, today ​announced the launch of BUDDY. This first-of-its-kind AI and machine learning-driven app aimed at predicting health challenges while providing support and data for seniors and their caregivers with health management needs.

Acting as a personal health assistant for seniors, BUDDY’s complete spectrum of functions assist users with their day-to-day health management activities. Its suite of health monitoring solutions address the most critical health issues faced by seniors and their caregivers, including:

  • Predictive AI and machine-learning that triggers an alert when changes in a person’s gate are detected helping to predict and prevent future falls, the leading cause of death among seniors.
  • Automatic fall detection and alerts.
  • Irregular health pattern detection and alerts, including heart rate, blood pressure, and glucose monitoring.
  • Location detection and alerts-vital to the well-being of individuals with dementia and Alzheimers.
  • Code blue detection and alerts.
  • Medication adherence and schedule reminders.

Once personalized data has been entered into BUDDY, its technology enables users to monitor their health and provides alerts should irregular health patterns occur. The app offers an easy setup and straightforward user experience.

Arthur and Daniel Jue, Cofounders of LiveFreely, are two brothers who took care of their aging father in his final stages of life. “It’s our mission to create an ecosystem where seniors feel safer and can lead more connected, purposeful lives while giving their caretakers enhanced peace of mind,” said Arthur Jue.

The experience and overwhelming amount of information that must be managed when caring for a loved one are what drove the brothers to create this technology. “Health management can quickly become very complex and expensive; BUDDY offers an affordable, effective solution while promoting independence. After three years of research and development, we are thrilled to make this technology available,” said Daniel Jue.
