NurtureWatch selects Sierra Wireless IoT solution to improve quality of life for the elderly

Sierra Wireless’ IoT solution enables NurtureWatch tracking and monitoring features that help elderly people maintain a safe, healthy and independent lifestyle

VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--April 24, 2019--Sierra Wireless (NASDAQ: SWIR) (TSX: SW), the leading provider of fully integrated device-to-cloud solutions for the Internet of Things (IoT), today announced that its IoT connectivity solution is enabling tracking and communications for the NurtureWatch, a wearable device that helps elderly people stay safe, healthy and independent.

Bob Bilbruck, Acting Chief Marketing Officer, NurtureWatch, said: “The number of individuals in the 70+ age bracket is growing, placing stress on care facilities and family members. Sierra Wireless’ IoT solution provides the reliability that NurtureWatch needs to give elderly people their independence back, with key features to monitor their health and keep them connected with family and caregivers. The NurtureWatch is about 1/10 th the cost of a full-time care giver and helps elderly people live independently for longer.”

The expense of continuous, at-home care is one of the primary reasons that elderly people move into care facilities. For families and healthcare companies, the NurtureWatch can offset the cost of supporting elderly people and help them live independently in their homes for longer. In addition to 24/7 heart rate monitoring and fall detection, the NurtureWatch provides pill reminders to ensure medication compliance, GPS location tracking and geo-fencing to help elderly people stay in safe locations, and an SOS button and two-way calling to guarantee that they can quickly and easily call for help.

Marc Overton, Chief Solutions Officer, Sierra Wireless, said: “The NutureWatch is a great example of how IoT solutions are transforming lives. It empowers elderly people to maintain their independence and improve quality of life for themselves and their families.”

The NutureWatch is paired with a smartphone to keep elderly people connected and provide a safety net that allows constant monitoring and gives them greater independence – without the expense or intrusion of a 24/7 caregiver. To develop their solution, NurtureWatch teamed up with Captjur, a services and technology company based in California.
