Aging2.0 Providence Pitch Event

Providence
Wed, Apr 5, 2017, 6:00 PM (EDT)

Providence

We will feature 6 companies innovating in the aging space. Each will pitch to a panel of judges and we will award both a "people's choice" and a first place prize that will progress onto the next round. The event will be at Social Enterprise Greenhouse with mingling, drinks and food! 

Startups

Portela Soni Medical

PSM is medical device company that is focused on infection reduction. Our patent-pending urinary catheter has been redesigned to reduce the growth of biofilm, that in turn reduces infections and decreases a patient's risk of complications. The PSM catheter is bringing innovation to a stagnated market through simple innovations to reduce infections while improving patient outcomes and experiences.

EveryBill

EveryBill’s healthcare payment platform lets patients manage all of their healthcare expenses in one place. Users can see and pay medical bills, identify the best insurance plans based on their personal history of care, and control who has access to their information.

URI Wearable Biosensing Lab

I will present Woven Internet-of-things: Smart Textiles for Elderly with Neurological Conditions including Parkinson’s and stroke. Our smart textiles are transformative telemedicine solutions to intervene patients remotely, eliminating the need for patients to make frequent visits to clinics. We are able to produce a precise, temporal picture of the patients’ response to the prescribed treatments.

FallCall

FallCall Solutions creates simplified telemonitoring solutions for elders, caregivers, and care providers built for the Apple ecosystem. We will be presenting our second application currently in prototype: FallCall Now: the first “smart” fall detector built exclusively for Apple Watch.

Elderly Parent Resources

Those caring for an elder are often faced with situations that are uncharted territory. At EPR we understand the importance of getting information to people who have little time to research on their own. Our mission is to provide the most respected and best resources and support for caregivers and elders providing them with the answers to difficult questions.

CareConnect

CareConnect is a cross platform that simplifies communication between elderly caregivers and family members. It takes a variety of logged data, and creates personal summaries for different family members depending on their concerns and schedules. By simplifying the transfer of information, caregivers can focus more on providing quality care, and family members receive a greater peace of mind.
