Description
As the population of older Americans continues to increase, there is a growing need for technology solutions that allow seniors to age in place respectfully, gracefully and safely. Residents at Ohio Masonic Home Springfield campus are piloting a new technology from Reemo that combines the Samsung Gear S2 smartwatch and Samsung's SmartThings connected home technology. This solution enables older adults to operate lights, locks, thermostats, televisions and other appliances with a flick of the wrist. Meanwhile, the Ohio Masonic staff can remotely track biometric and behavioral data in real time and spot potential health declines.
