OnKöl taps Gemalto for IoT tech

11/09/17

Gemalto has announced the use of its IoT connectivity technology in OnKöl’s mHealth solution. Enabled by Gemalto’s wireless module, the smart hub connects the elderly and those with special needs to their family and caregivers, allowing them to live in their own home safely, independently and comfortably.

Gemalto says: “With the population of older individuals due to double in size by 2030 and the ratio of potential caregivers to decrease by more than 50%, new technology must rise to meet the need for quality care. However, adoption rates among elderly patients have been low as current mHealth options are often too complicated.”

The company claims the OnKöl hub removes barriers to technology adoption and encourages engagement without intimidation. Straight out of the box, it can notify family members, caregivers and medical professionals of everything from vital signs to medication reminders to emergency response situations. 

Equipped with Gemalto's M2M module, the remote patient monitoring services are securely managed over-the-air to simplify deployment, personalisation and software updates. The patient can connect health and home monitoring devices, such as blood pressure cuffs, heart-monitors, and smoke detectors, and Gemalto's module encrypts and sends the gathered information to the OnKöl platform where it is delivered to caregivers and can also be logged into the patients’ electronic medical records.
