Sensor to facilitate everyday care in nursing homes

The iHomeLab in Lucerne, Switzerland has produced the iSens light, a sensor placed near the bed of a person in need of care that detects irregularities in movement patterns and, if necessary, informs the caregiver. This product is aimed to help elderly people and has been commercially available since spring 2021. iSens light began as a research project part

The iHomeLab is a center of excellence for Intelligent Building Technologies and Smart Homes and part of the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts – Engineering & Architecture. Research is conducted in the following three main areas:

Active Assisted Living: new technologies that improve the quality of life of the elderly and enable autonomy within their own four walls.

Smart Energy Management: Systems to reduce energy consumption in buildings.

Safe Building Intelligence: intelligent systems and digitization and how networked everyday objects in health, transport, environment and social interaction can help to improve the quality of life.
