A project that helps hospital staff to monitor the safety of elderly or at risk patients 24 hours a day.

The management of security systems for the elderly, especially those in unstable medical conditions, has a huge impact on the costs and efficiency of hospital facilities. In addition to needing staff prepared for every type of occurrence, they must maintain patient monitoring throughout the day and also during the night. This is an especially difficult task when it comes to large numbers of patients or the necessity to deal with complex pathologies.


To support the healthcare staff in these tasks, the startup Sma-Rty has created SleEPy – Smart Safety for Elderly People, an intelligent monitoring system for elderly patients.

SleEPy is an Italian-French project that aims to integrate Artificial Intelligence with visual recognition technologies, to assist human beings in performing repetitive tasks such as monitoring vital signs, surveillance, and anomaly detection.


Constant elderly patient monitoring

Through its sensors, SleEPy collects patient status data, such as skin temperature, heart rate or body movement. By reprocessing these data, Artificial Intelligence is able to detect problems in real time and report them to healthcare providers. In this way, healthcare workers can monitor and take care of many patients contemporaneously, thereby, improving the timeliness of their interventions and consequently, the safety of the elderly and at-risk patients.


If you are interested in technology and how it can be used to improve safety and quality of life, you will find SleEPy and many other projects at Maker Faire Rome – the European Edition 2019, the world-famous innovative technology fair that will be held from 18 to 20 October at the Fiera di Roma.
