Problem:   Fast Aging Seniors Could Bankrupt National Insurance

12 million Japanese seniors are expected to be living alone by 2040, up from about 8 million now. Life expectancy is about 81 years, 5 years higher than the Americans. Ironically this achievement has already taken a toll on national insurance. Japan is looking for ways to dramatically reduce emergency visits to hospitals, lower insurance funded nursing care.

Solution:  Self-Care with The Help of AI

LiveSmart believes self-care can reduce costs, increase efficiency and help seniors live healthier longer.

The COVID-19 pandemic has made self-care essential.

Security & Mobility Assessment technologies developed by LiveSmart range from assessing risk of fall to predicting onset of a disease through vision-based machine learning models. Combining vision based data with data from IoT sensors helps capture a complete picture of the person’s life.
