Tendertec & Fitbees: Home sensors and wearable tech to motivate and support physical activity
FitBees: Combines AI home sensors and wearable technologies, motivational encouragement, and local community connections to support physical activity that engages ‘under-represented’ groups.
About the project
FitBees combines AI home sensors and wearable technologies, motivational encouragement, and local community connections to support physical activity.
The aim of the FitBees service is to engage ‘under-represented” groups to: initiate tech-enabled activity assessments to share their needs and challenges; partner with their circle of support and local actuators to co-create community-based activity plans; remain motivated and supported. It will also enable health and care practitioners to access activity diaries to assess changing needs; and enable local authorities and support organisations to optimise community resources aimed at active ageing.
FitBees is led by Tendertec Limited, a company with an AI platform (CareBox) that monitors daily living activities and vitals for people with carers. CareBox is currently piloted in the UK and EU and the learnings derived from this service confirm the importance of turning data intelligence into real-life actions for people with support needs. Alongside is KYMIRA, a company producing patented smart garments that provide biomechanical assessment of the lower extremities.
