Innovative organizations in care for the elderly, collaborating in 'Different Working in Care' and the Ministry of Health, Welfare and Sport put Smart Floor in the spotlight.
PARTNERS & CUSTOMERS
Elderly care organization tante Louise commissioned Connective Floors in 2018 to develop a software application that can reduce the number of falls of elderly people in care and nursing homes by up to 70%. This prevents a lot of suffering and saves costs.
Also, by using this application, part of the work of healthcare personnel and physiotherapists is taken over. Given the scarcity of healthcare personnel, this is a very welcome development.
After two years of development and validation, this fall prevention application has been clinically implemented within the tanteLouise Foundation from August 2020.
From September 2020, Connective Floors will develop in collaboration with tantelouise four new applications for geriatric rehabilitation and physiotherapy.
Connective Floors has concluded cooperation agreements with sports floor suppliers Pulastic and Gerflor to develop sports applications for physical education in schools, amateur and top sports.
There are already several sports floors with Smart Floor in the Netherlands to validate these applications with users. Such as at Sports & Event center Maaspoort ’s-Hertogenbosch, Sporthallen Zuid Amsterdam and PSV Eindhoven.
The first sports application, which measures the intensity of movement during gym classes or indoor amateur sports, will be ready in 2021.
