NASHVILLE, TN -- (Marketwired) -- 08/15/14 -- In the United States, more than 11 million people over the age of 65 live alone, and more than 61 million have physical or intellectual disabilities, and these numbers are growing. In today's fast-paced society family members need better ways to check on the health and safety of their aging parents and grandparents or adult children with disabilities.
Evermind, a breakthrough technology on-sale to the general public today at evermind.us, is an affordable, cutting-edge tool that enables seniors and others who live alone or need extra support to maintain an independent lifestyle, while providing them and their family members with peace of mind. Evermind's unique, unobtrusive design uses three sensors to monitor small electrical appliances. Using built-in wireless Internet, family members can then receive text messages or email notifications when an appliance is used or not used within a specific time period -- primarily when changes in a daily routine could be cause for concern. For example, if an aging grandmother doesn't turn on the evening news, her grandson will be notified via text and can check on her.
"Evermind creates a connection to the rhythms of another's daily life, giving assurance that they are safe and sound, whether they live next door or a thousand miles away," said Dr. Dave Gilbert, Evermind's co-founder and CEO. "These routines, like making coffee in the morning or watching a favorite television show before bedtime, serve as a way for loved ones to check-in and signal that everything is okay even when it is not possible to call or drop by."
Dr. Gilbert is an experienced technologist and entrepreneur who developed Evermind for his 96-year-old grandmother to be able to stay in her own home. Today, it is being used by families across America, who have a variety of needs and challenges.
"Evermind let me know my daughter had been watching TV in the middle of the night," said Toni, age 42, caregiver to her 18-year old daughter with autism and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). "Turns out she was taking her Ritalin too late in the day and it was keeping her up."
Evermind, headquartered in Nashville, Tenn., has been in development for more than two years. During that time, Dr. Dave Gilbert and Evermind's world-class team of programmers, developers, and experts in technology, healthcare and design, created an age-friendly technology that improves the lives of those who are living alone or who need extra support, and the people who care about them. While never replacing human interaction, Evermind looks for markers of well-being in the way people use home appliances, and other everyday objects, in order to create a connection to the rhythms of daily life, providing assurance that they are safe and sound. With Evermind, daily rituals like making coffee in the morning or switching a bedside lamp off at night can serve as a simple check-in system, signaling that all is well without diminishing independence or requiring changes in routine.

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...
