MedFuse 2018 has ended
While innovation in the medical space can be daunting or challenging, MedFuse will be a place where both seasoned experts and aspiring talent are welcome together. Not only are there many ways in which the medical field stands to benefit from new perspectives, but there are also many tangential fields to medicine that innovations present in other IoT solutions can serve with fewer barriers. Fields like home monitoring, health and wellness apps, or wearable devices. So if you or your company have ideas, are looking for ideas, or just want to be inspired, MedFuse is the place to come tap into a network of innovators, thinkers, but most importantly, doers. So whether or not you are a trained medical professional, MedFuse is right for you.

Older adults strive to be as independent as possible as they age and to maintain the lifestyle they have come to enjoy. Unfortunately, autonomy often comes at the price of safety (and vice versa). As families and care providers, we should be able to monitor health, safety, and fitness without compromising independence. Technology has a huge part to play in the future of Senior Care, and WalkSmart is the perfect solution for many older adults. Many existing solutions are poor adaptations of technology built for millennials, but WalkSmart is designed specifically for walker users. No wearable, no smartphone, and no charging are required. Yet it provides important safety alerts in real-time and gives families peace of mind through our mobile app. When technologies are designed specifically for seniors, we can truly help people live the best life possible.
