HandsFree Health Provides Voice Technology to Seniors Through BeHomeSafe
HandsFree Health, provider of the WellBe voice-enabled virtual health assistant platform, will offer a voice-enabled smart speaker and mobile smart watch directly to seniors to help them access health information in the safety of their homes.
The device is being provided trough an agreement with BeHomeSafe.
Among its many features, WellBe can be set up to remind seniors to take medicine, attend a doctor's appointment, order prescription refills, and to require verbal confirmation that it's been done.
"We want to help relieve the challenges, especially in older populations, of having to leave their homes to access critical health information and resources," said Dennis Boone, chief consumer marketing and sales officer at HandsFree Health, in a statement. "As Americans are increasingly choosing to age in place at home, our technology platform serves multiple functions of health, safety, and interaction with loved ones."
"Independence, technology and affordability are all key components to helping seniors maximize their lives and WellBe from HandsFree Health helps support all three," said Marc Cayle, founder of BeHomeSafe, in a statement. "We are offering WellBe as part of our in-home offering to make it easier for seniors and their caregivers to stay current with health and medical information and needs."
HandsFree Health's technology platform supports virtual setup of its WellBe voice-enabled virtual assistant.
