FREMONT, Calif. – MivaTek, a video protection platform provider, is establishing a foothold in the home health care space with new products and a contract at a senior living community in Japan.
“The nature of our platform is collaborative,” said Joe Liu, CEO of MivaTek. “It takes advantage of technology to bring in health care teams, caregivers and family members.”
MivaTek is working on developing new sensor devices for seniors aging in the home that will integrate with the system’s fall detection, activity tracking and medication reminder features. The new devices will enable connected vital sign tracking and predictive analytics for health care.
Liu said market forces are pushing providers to adapt newer technology for value-based remote and point-of-care service, and that the company’s comprehensive video-verified assurance platform is a good fit for the connected health and telemedicine industry.
“Mivatek’s comprehensive assurance platform is a game changer because our patented architecture offers integrated video collaboration and IoT for mobile interactive monitoring, controls, unified communications, alarm, alerts and more,” he said. “Our platform allows patients, hospitals and providers a secure communication ecosystem with real-time video recording, tracking of patients’ well-being and archiving via a user-friendly smartphone app.”
The company’s recent contract with the Sha Maison senior living development calls for Wi-Fi connected video, security, safety and independent living devices for 700 units and common areas. When completed, it will be the first all-Wi-Fi device protection system in Japan, Liu said.
Moving forward, MivaTek is exploring using narrow band cellular capability and making the platform more user-friendly as the company expands.
“Based on the success of the Sha Maison project, we believe our turnkey ‘Protection as a Service’ platform partnership/OEM business is well poised to grow globally,” he said.
