nevisQ provides patented smart baseboards that can recognize and analyze activity in rooms. The young HealthTech startup therefore provides a solution which can detect and prevent falls in nursing homes. In the event of a fall, the nurse is notified via an app/web or an app/bell system. Dennis Breuer, Co-Founder and Managing Director of nevisQ told us more about his young company, which is among our CODE_n CONTEST finalists this year.
What is nevisQ all about? How did you come up with the idea?
Dennis: nevisQ develops technologies to make living in rooms easier and more secure. Our first application is a system which automatically prevents and detects falls of elderly people. By simply installing smart baseboards we can monitor objects, persons and activities in a room. Our solution helps nurses in a nursery care home to keep the overview of all residents and therefore to work more efficient. In addition to that, the follow-up costs of a fall can be reduced.
“Digital Disruption“ – that’s the motto of this year’s CODE_n CONTEST. What makes your solution innovative, what makes it disruptive?
Dennis: Our system is to a high degree self-thinking and -acting, which means that certain actions of people are no longer necessary. Elderly people do not need to wear any gadgets or execute actions on their phone. The system performs all of it by its own by recognizing and analyzing the behavior of people. The number-one solution to prevent and detect falls of elderly people in Germany is a button which they have to carry around their neck. This is very stigmatizing and in case of an emergency, most people are not able to press the button or are not wearing it at all. Our solution is based on a completely new way of detecting and preventing falls, using artificial intelligence. More…
