  • The elderly, the disabled and those living with health risks require monitoring to bring care and allow early intervention when issues arise. This will allow them to live independently and feel cared for but also that they are not a burden to carers and their family.

  • HalleyAssist® is a tiny but powerful hub device connected to a flexible array of sensors that measure presence, movement, sleeping and importantly, falls. Data is analysed and provided to family and carers in real time. Health status can be checked at any time with a glance via an App or multi-user Dashboard for care organisations. Significant health issues are delivered by immediate push alerts. The device size and aesthetics are minimalist and designed to be completely unobtrusive. Users say they are unaware of the presence of hardware and it requires no wearable devices or any interaction from users.

  • 1.Effectively detect immediate and long-term health issues to allow early interventions = better health outcomes and quality of life. 2.Demonstrated to provide cost efficiencies in resources to users, their families, care providers and Government. 3.Users report feeling more secure knowing help is available when needed and when they cannot call for help. 4.Families have reduced stress by being able to see at a glance the status of their loved ones - in real time. Users live in their own homes and the community for longer. 5. Hardware is minimal, has a long lifespan and is ultimately recyclable.

  • 1.Unobtrusive system and requires no interaction from users - works for people of any cognitive ability including Dementia and Alzheimer's Disease suffers. 2.Fast (~50 mins) to install, no wiring. 3.Fully tested and proven in trials to be 100% usable and accepted by users (including Dementia suffers), their families and carers. 4.Currently in trial for in-home health monitoring of discharged Hospital patients - detects health changes to allow early intervention. 5.The AI functionality is truly world class - recently proven by a large trial in home based aged care trial. 6.Vox system reminders for hydration, medication or appointments - reduces reliance on memory and improves medical compliance. 7.Medical staff have real health data such as sleep time and quality, hydration, toilet frequency to make more informed medical decisions. 8.Integrates with home automation and security i.e. lock doors and arm alarm system when subject is in bed - peace of mind. 9.Designed for data connect-ability - allows integration with clinical data management systems with cutting edge privacy and data security. 10.Hardware design led by the Australian based HalleyAssist® engineering team in partnership with domain experts from leading Universities to perfect the critical AI components.
