The healthcare sector has been undergoing major changes in recent years. This places a large burden on the shoulders of care providers.

However these changes do not stop at national borders, but are also strongly experienced across the border in Germany.

As a developer of products in the field of Internet of Things, Teneo sees a great outcome for “smart products”. That is why we have set up the cross-border project Smart Nurturing.


Project Smart Nurturing

This project has been co-financed by the European Union within the framework of the INTERREG VA program Deutschland – Netherlands with funds from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF)

Smart Nurturing is focused on allowing people in need of care to live longer at home and to enable “remote care”.

Specifically, this project aims to investigate the feasibility of the technical workability of a ‘smart meter’, which can indirectly measure the activity in the home of a person in need of care; to detect.

On the basis of this smart meter, an attempt is made to gather data about the activity in a home, enabling end users to easily and at a glance monitor the circumstances of a person in need of care; to check

In order to address the vulnerability of physically and mentally persons in need, project partners also want to investigate to what extent, and how, a passive alarm can be issued when there is a disturbing change in the activity of the dependent person;  alert. 

First Phase

The first phase of the development of this “smart meter” was between December 2016 and December 2017. During this study, the technical feasibility of the “smart meter” was investigated. This revealed that there are great opportunities for the smart meter and that the intended smart meter can certainly offer a good technological solution for the healthcare sector.

Based on these results, Teneo is currently working on further developing the smart meter into a scalable and market-ready product.
