Seeking opportunities for a stronger pan-European partnership, Aifloo joins EIT Digital
Swedish scale-up Aifloo develops e-health systems based on artificial intelligence, increasing safety and independence for elderly and chronically ill patients by detecting and analysing behaviours and alerting relatives or caregivers to potential danger. Aifloo has worked closely with EIT Digital's partners at the Stockholm innovation hub for some time, contributing to the IoT platform ACTIVE. Seizing opportunities for a stronger pan-European partnership, Aifloo now joins EIT Digital Sweden as a member.
Felix Etzler, Michael Collaros and Anders Widgren founded Aifloo in 2015 as a response to the needs of aging family members and their loved ones. To provide the required support, they created an AI system that can learn the behaviour of an individual and adapt to that person's needs and conditions using sensors, a smart wristband and behavioural pattern analysis. The systems monitors and alerts on changes in such things as sleeping patterns and eating habits, along with sudden erratic movements indicating a trip or fall.
Michael Collaros, CEO, Aifloo, said, '[tweetable]Being a member of EIT Digital is a great opportunity for us[/tweetable], and we look forward to co-operating with the leading digital transformation partners on European innovation projects and to enable products to reach the market faster and with a greater reach. We were lucky to be invited to softland in Kista and work on the generic IoT platform, ACTIVE. The experience proved the value of asymmetric collaboration between smaller and larger companies and various fields of expertise.'
