Blue Willow Systems Highlights Wearable Technology for Elders

Debuted just last month at the prestigious NIC Conference in Washington, DC, Blue Willow is already causing a buzz in the senior living and health care space. In a recent issue of Forbes Magazine (9/28/16), the discussion is around three industries that will be transformed by intelligent technology, including health care. Blue Willow is poised for that revolution.

Devdas founded the company after the tragic loss of his father due to an undetected fall. As he learned more about the issue, the highly-regarded computer engineer and successful entrepreneur, found that undetected falls account for a significant proportion of the hospitalizations of seniors in senior care communities.  However, he was surprised to learn that new technologies weren’t being used to solve the problem, and decided to change this. The result,Blue Willow Systems, is an innovative fall detection and alert system designed to allow seniors’ facilities to automatically monitor the health and location of their residents using a variety of wearable and non-wearable sensor devices.

“Previous technologies required the wearer to pull a string,” Devdas continues. “What if your mother has a stroke and is incapacitated, or your grandfather has a heart attack and is unable to move? The automatic features of geo sensing in the Blue Willow device make previous technologies obsolete. Our patented technology is the future of senior and disability care delivered now: safely, securely and via the cloud.”

Blue Willow Systems makes fall detection and health monitoring into an easy-to-implement solution. Its innovative, cost-effective system provides significant benefits to meet all the challenges of helping seniors to stay independent:

The Blue Willow System comprises a number of industry advantages:

•            Provides an integrated and modern platform: Blue Willow Systems offers an end-to-end solution that uses wearables and sensors within a resident's living space, and sends information instantly to mobile and desktop dashboards for caregivers and operators.

•           Cloud-based delivery proves ample mobility and flexibility: Multiple locations and on-the-go staff members require a solution that can be managed from anywhere, at any time. Blue Willow Systems is cloud-based, so you can access your data and tools whenever you need them.

•           SaaS model gives you affordability and just-right functionality: No need to purchase an expensive software solution that's packed with features you don't use-not to  mention getting hit with fees for upgrades and support. Software-as-a-service allows you to buy only what you need, making it an extremely budget-friendly option that still has all the functionality you require.


•            Automatic monitoring, reporting, and alerts give you real-time insights: Fall prevention and health monitoring are a 24/7/365 responsibility, but few organizations can staff up to those levels. Now there's no need. With Blue Willow Systems, you have always-on monitoring, which issues alerts when risks are detected. You also have reports that can give you insights on trends and issues worth watching.
