Does Nobi work when there are several residents?
Nobi is meant for older adults who live alone since they don’t have anyone living in the house who can provide immediate help. Nobi ensures that help can arrive quickly after a fall. This way, the consequential damage is kept to a minimum.
What happens with the Nobi smart lamps after the testing phase?
After the testing phase, Nobi will offer you the option to leave the lamps where they are at a reduced price. Do contact us if you are interested in this offer.
How long does a test take in a residential care centre or assisted living facility?
The duration of the learning phase depends on the situation and the environment but on average, it takes two weeks. In this phase, the lamp familiarises itself with the room and the resident’s habits and routines.
Does Nobi offer a solution for tracking diseases like COVID-19 faster?
Pattern recognition allows Nobi to establish when a resident is exhibiting behaviour that is out of the ordinary. Nobi is not a medical instrument; a doctor will always need to assess the situation.
What else can Nobi do?
- Fall prevention
Nobi will detect whether a resident is leaving his or her bed at night. At that moment the lights will turn on so the resident doesn’t get disoriented and has clear sight.
- Night watch
When residents leave their beds at night, the caregivers are notified.
- Care record
Nobi can be linked with the health care record of the resident in a residential care centre or service flat. By doing so, double input is avoided and a clean transfer of Nobi’s parameters like blood pressure, temperature and weight is easier than ever.
Can Nobi help solve the shortage of care staff?
Nobi can contribute to relieving the pressure on nursing staff. During the night, for instance, when only a few nurses are available to care for an entire residential care centre, Nobi can help keep an eye on the residents who get out of bed and warn the staff in the event of a fall.
Why do we test Nobi in residential care centres and assisted living facilities?
The way these rooms are designed and furnished is usually quite simple and straightforward. The living space and kitchen are often combined, as are the bathroom and toilet. As a result, with only one Nobi lamp and one Nobita, we can test our smart lamps to their full potential. Our smart lamps are being trained intensively so that they will be able to monitor more complex spaces, such as those in more classic homes.
