PROTEGO is a simple, cost-effective solution that monitors the movements of elderly people in their own homes so that they can live safely and independently without the need to stay in a nursing home or with the family.

As more elderly people start living independently in their own homes, their family members will be concerned of their elderly loved ones safety. PROTEGO, with the use of smart software and a mobile app, will reassure the family members that their elderly loved ones are safe while alone at home. Let's say, for example, an elderly person has fallen in the bathroom. PROTEGO detects that there has been no movement for a certain period of time and sends a notification to the family member, alerting them. The family member can then call their elderly loved ones home or if necessary, call for help. With PROTEGO you will never feel too far.
