Challenge: Better security and assistance for elderly people living independently at home.

Solution: VTT and IST together developed the IST Vivago, the most advanced security wristband in the market. The wristband measures and transmits data related to the health and well-being of an elderly person, and activates alarms to healthcare providers and other carers as necessary.

Key benefits: The cutting-edge product builds on power efficiency, measuring technology and intelligent algorithms. The wristband has almost 20,000 users worldwide, improving the quality of life and reducing public expenses. The product won the 2006 Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Innovation in the European Social Alarms Market.
