Careteq announces new product and partner

Sofihub’s parent company Careteq has launched the fall detection radar system TEQ-FallsAlert in Australia.

Careteq – the parent company of assistive technology solution provider Sofihub – has launched the fall detection radar system TEQ-FallsAlert in Australia.

Rather than a wearable, the system uses radar technology to detect falls and then alert friends or family members via an SMS so they can respond. It can detect falls from standing, seated or horizontal positions.

The plug and play system – which has no cameras, audio or recording – is being pitched at seniors who have had or are at risk of falls and want that extra layer of security in the home.

Careteq executive chairman Mark Simari said the company was thrilled to introduce TEQ-FallsAlert to the Australian market.

“By addressing the critical issue of falls in the elderly population, we aim to provide a reliable and efficient means of fall detection that enhances safety, reduces the risk of long lie falls, and promotes independent and dignified living,” he said.

Partnership provides seniors a pricing deal

Careteq has also announced a partnership with advocacy group National Seniors Australia to offer a pricing deal on TEQ-FallsAlert and fellow Sofihub product TEQ-Secure.

TEQ-Secure is a lightweight personal alarm featuring an SOS button and automatic falls detection. It is equipped with GPS and mobile network technology so friends and family can instantly pinpoint a person’s live location and help can be sent when needed.

National Seniors Australia chief operating officer Chris Grice said the two products could enhance the life and wellbeing of senior Australians, particularly as more of them are wanting to maximise their independence and remain at home.

“We believe Careteq’s assistive living technology is a valuable solution for our members as it offers peace of mind to both users and their loved ones.”

Similarly, National Seniors is the right partner for Careteq given it is the leading voice for all seniors in Australia, said Mr Simari.

“The organisation’s large member database and extensive reach into our target demographic gives us a platform to increase awareness of our unique solutions, educate older Australians on Careteq’s products and services, and help us gain further insights into our customers.”
