Independa Powers Remote Care Service For LivHOME
San Diego-based Independa, the developer of remote monitoring products for seniors, is powering a new tablet computer-based remote care service from LivHOME, the two said this morning. LivHOME launched LivIndependa, a remote care and monitoring service for older adults this morning, saying that it is tapping technology from startup Independa to power the offering. The service allows older adults to email and conduct video chats with others, get medication reminders, browse the Internet, share photos and videos, and more. LivHOME said the new service is aimed at seniors who would benefit from some level of home monitoring, but do not have need for an in-home caregiver. Financial details of the deal were not disclosed. Independa is headed by Kian Saneii.
