HERZLIYA, Israel, February 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Essence, the leading provider of M2M connected-living solutions announced an agreement with Natali Healthcare Solutions, the largest health solutions provider in Israel, for Essence's [email protected][TM] to promote senior independence and provide peace of mind to family members. [email protected][TM] is a seamless M2M, cloud-based in-home care solution for the elderly and chronic disease sufferers.

"We chose Essence's solution because they have more than 20 years of home monitoring experience," says Haim Cohen, VP Business Development of Natali Healthcare Solutions. "They developed the product hand-in-hand with end-users and healthcare providers, so our clients are receiving proven technology that encourages the highest quality of life possible as their health challenges increase."

The [email protected][TM] solution consists of mobile and web apps, a control panel, a set of wireless, easy-to-install devices, and remote management tools for service providers - all backed by a unique smart algorithm, an analytics engine, and cloud technology. The self-learning monitoring system collects real-time information on a senior's daily activity levels and builds recognition of personal patterns. When those patterns deviate from the norm, the system alerts both caregivers and family members, allowing them to take immediate action. The system also monitors fire and water leakage, adding an additional layer of safety and security.

The product has already demonstrated efficacy in detecting early warning signals for changes in health conditions, enabling prevention, proactive care, and rapid intervention, consequently, preventing health deterioration and enabling independent living at home for seniors and the chronically ill.

"Life expectancy has grown significantly over the past few decades; the elderly population is expected to reach ~10% of the world population by 2020," said Dr. Haim Amir, Chairman and CEO of Essence. "This has a direct impact on people's quality of life as well as on health systems worldwide. Naturally, people want to maintain their independence at home as long as possible, and countries need to ease the burden on the public health system. We developed this technology to reduce cost and directly address these needs."

Natali Healthcare Solutions has already begun to deliver the [email protected][TM] system to its clients, providing a unique "independent living at home" service.
