IN SENIOR CARE

9TH WAVE
WE NEED TO IMPROVE
THE CONNECTION

Existing communications devices, like old-school “I’ve fallen and I can’t get up” pendants and personal emergency response solutions (PERS) are problematic. These devices can be difficult to use, and they don’t allow for two-way communication with family members or healthcare providers in case of emergency.

Often, senior citizens are reluctant to use these “I don’t want to be old” is a frequent statement.

Mobile phones when used,  helps verbal communications, but only when used.

9TH WAVE
IS DIFFERENT

9th Wave leverages the advanced augmented contextual intelligence of the Spark Compass platform with Alexa voice-activated devices, tablets and a mobile app with optional in-home sensors to create an easy-to-use platform as a service (PaaS).

9TH WAVE
WORKS FOR FAMILY MEMBERS AND HEALTHCARE PROS

9th Wave is an easy-to-deploy complete solution for family members and care providers – with a simple out-of-the box set up.  Integration with healthcare professionals is also simple with the care provider app.
