Above all, human interactions
"Ouay help me!" or, "Ouay asks Alice to come to pick me up at 4 pm". This is how the elderly interacts with Ouay. Through her small box, she communicates with the elderly but also with the family and the external care services.
Thanks to its sensors embedded in the device, Ouay has multiple means of detecting falls to warn if help is needed. Whether by voice, "Ouay help!" or through the sensors.
Ouay's platform aims to make the elderly master of his autonomy and independence. The person gets the help required at the right time. Thus, caregivers' time is used more efficiently and in a smarter way.
Interact with your parent through a quick "good night daddy" or "don't forget your appointment tomorrow" by using a messaging app. But that's not all, Ouay gives you feedback about your parent's activity. For example, to detect mobility reduction.
The sum is more than the sum of its parts
Ouay brings together the elderly, his family and care services to the profit of everyone. Better autonomy, more independence, better lifestyle. The elderly interacts with his family and care services through voice. Family and care services use an app.
"Ouay I go to the toilet" and she will check that you come back. "Ouay turn the light on" and lights up!. More than a simple vocal assistant, she is always there for you, even in the dark night.
"Ouay help!" and she will get the help you need by calling relatives, care services or emergencies. She allows you to live without concern you don't want to have.
"Ouay tells the nurse I won't take breakfast this morning". This way the nurse is free to provide cares to someone else.
