Company Summary

Atlas5D protects the independence of older adults at home, while respecting privacy and dignity. The way someone moves - speed, posture, behavior – is a powerful indicator of state-of-health. Atlas5D detects changes in how an older adult is moving at home, without use of photos or worn devices. We provide 1) ongoing, upbeat reassurance for family and friends, and 2) early warning to address an incipient health crisis, such as pneumonia or stroke.
