We recently came across the Kinsa smart themometer, which aims to track family illnesses, as well as deliver insight into local outbreaks. Now Sense-U is doing a similar thing for overall health, using a fitness tracker to allow parents to see the activity of their kids and elderly relatives, as well as themselves.
Rather than delivering the data just to the person it’s tracking however, the Sense-U has a family dashboard that offers real-time information about each members’ daily activity and incidents. The device can let parents know the typical wake and sleep patterns of each user and how many calories they’re burning each day. Sense-U also detects posture for kids and adults to ensure they’re not spending too much time slumped over at a desk. If an elderly family member takes a fall, an adult is also notified and is able to check if they need help.
