HomePal is a technology startup and social enterprise formed in 2020 to leverage technology to advance eldercare remote monitoring capabilities. Our core product is a fall detection system that uses IoT devices and AI-enabled verification to provide swift and accurate detection of any fall or abnormality occurring at nursing homes, while protecting their privacy. With integration into existing emergency service providers, timely help can be provided once a fall is detected. Ultimately, we wish to provide peace of mind for the vulnerable and their families.
Since 2020, HomePal has partnered with 3 nursing homes and a community volunteer organization to conduct trial testing. Together with our trial partners and mentors, we want to build smarter homes, for safer families.
We have garnered interest from 3 Nursing Homes and 1 Community Volunteer Organisation to launch our solution for.
