LAS VEGAS – January 6, 2014 – At the 2015 Consumer Electronic Show, Independa, the leader in integrated community engagement and remote care technologies, today announced its entrance into the consumer market by making the unique and award-winning Independa TV available to anyone who is struggling to provide remote care for their aging loved one. This powerful and simple TV-based solution enhances the lives and independence of older adults aging in place and provides peace of mind to their caregivers.
“Our expansion into the consumer market is critical to our mission of transforming the aging in place experience,” said Kian Saneii, Founder and CEO of Independa. “This is on the one hand based on strong market demand. On the other hand, this solution only enhances our enterprise offerings as it is available through our corporate partners and customers. Independa has harnessed the power of the most familiar and simple to use technology – a TV and a remote – to extend and enrich independence. Our consumer launch makes it possible for anybody to purchase and use Independa for their loved one.”
The new Independa solution features picture sharing, messaging, video chat, calendaring, reminders, a help button and many other easy-to-use care and engagement elements, including Independa Life Stories. Combining the benefits of cloud-based software with the simplicity of a TV, Independa offers consumers cost-effective and easy-to-use solutions for social engagement and integrated remote care. Independa delivers a person-centric, highly customized engagement platform that is intuitive and easy-to-use for the care recipient, and provides social sharing opportunities and meaningful insights regarding the care recipient’s wellbeing to caregivers, family and friends.
“According to the National Alliance for Caregiving, there are 65 million caregivers in the US — and 51% of their care recipients are aged 75+. Independa opens up communication possibilities for them, including more effective use of TV and telephone,” said Laurie Orlov, Industry Analyst at Aging in Place Technology Watch.
