Prevention / proactive wellness healthcare system

Creating big data analytics from your body while you sleep.

Continuous, frequent (daily), long-term monitoring of resting heart rate, breathing rate and even sleep apnea (AHI) data can be compiled and analyzed to provide users powerful in-depth “big data” personal health information.

Monitoring of health vital data can provide early detectionof possible health risks such as sleep apnea, heart arrhythmia (irregular heart beat) and prolonged deterioration of sleep cycle which can affect memory loss. Data can be compiled and averaged to provide useful information to the user in order for him/her to take action to be more proactive in their overall health and wellness.

World's most advanced
personal emergency response system
powered by kardian and equipped with amazon alexa ai.

PERS systems provide peace of mind for both the users as well as for his/her family and caretakers. Unfortunately even the very best of the best can sometimes fail to deliver reassurance or relief in certain emergency situations. Kardian PERS device is equipped with a high performance speaker, far-field mic and microprocessors capable of operating Amazon’s ALEXA AI. Combined with traditional SOS button, the users can either physically press and hold (3 seconds) or speak “Alexa, Kardian Help” to initiate a pre-defined emergency request protocol.

Pre-defined caretakers – including friends, family and neighbors can be notified by mobile apps and text messages. If the user has opted for RapidSOS services, the system will also automatically connect to 911 dispatch in over 6000 centers in the US. All of the designated caretakers as well as 911 dispatch will receive real-time information about the users current health vitals – Heart rate, breathing rate, fall status and movement index.

SAMPLE ACTION SCENARIO

SOS PROTOCOL
SOS PROTOCOL

KARDIAN sends out notifications to all of the pre-designated caretakers via mobile app and text messages. It will also send out a request to the local 911 dispatch center in the USA. 911 dispatch will dial in the dedicated number assigned to the Kardian PERS device and attempt to speak to the user via speaker + mic. Even if a voice call is not successful, once a call connection is made, 911 dispatch will send out first responders to the users address.

The user may also start to have increased sudden movements (such as grabbing his chest). Breathing rate may also change suddenly.

POST-CALL MONITORING

While help is on the way, all of the designated caretakers and 911 dispatch will receive real-time data flow of health vitals including heart rate, breathing rate, fall status and movement index via dedicated app or through RapidSOS terminal (for 911 dispatch).

The user also has the option to cancel the help request at any time by pressing on the cancel button for 3 seconds or saying “ALEXA, CANCEL KARDIAN”.

STRATEGIC EXCLUSIVE PARTNERSHIP

RapidSOS is an award winning tech start-up from NYC that has developed a unique, disruptive system that can bypass the need for any third party call centers. When a 9-1-1 call comes in to Kardian PERS equipment, the system queries the NG911 Clearinghouse for supplementary location straight from the device and additional data (including health vitals). When help is needed urgently, every second matters. This is why Kardian has partnered with RapidSOS to provide the best, the most reliable and the fastest emergency service providing system in the world.

RAPIDSOS is KARDIAN’s exclusive partner for home (IR-UWB RADAR) PERS devices for North America.

Passing Away Alert System

Passing away is deeply emotional for everyone – including loving family members and friends. At the same time, it is also an inevitable fact that most seniors in developed countries – including Japan and United States of America have a growing population of baby boomers and seniors who are living alone. Some by choice, but others by nature – as many have no close living relatives. In fact, University of Western Ontario and Penn State University analyzed a survey from 1998 to 2010 and found that 6.6% of U.S. adults 55 and older have neither a spouse nor biological children still alive. That amounts to approximately 4.4 million Americans. 1% of older Americans have essentially no relatives at all alive, including a spouse, partner, children or biological parents or siblings.

Those numbers are expected to rise as divorce rate for 55 to 65 year-olds more than doubled from 1990 to 2015. This leads to a growing issue of “lonely deaths”. In Japan, there are over 4,000 lonely deaths a week. (Source)

Although Kardian PERS is designed to assist users of any potential emergency situations in order to help save a life or provide emergency assistance when needed, it is also equipped with the ability to detect presence via heart rate and breathing rate (chest movement) patterns. If no such vitals are present without the user having sat up or fallen from the bed, the system can only assume that the user has possibly passed away. In this scenario, Kardian PERS will go through its SOS protocol, even without voice or physical button press command.
