The CareTeam project in partnership with industrial partners Nquiringminds, Southampton and Portsmouth city councils aims to provide more efficient care services to help adults who currently receive care to remain independent, comfortable and active in their own homes for longer.

CareTeam comprises an app and background environmental sensors providing a non-intrusive IoT approach geared to generate proactive care-awareness.

The app provides functions such as secure group messaging, contacts, a calendar and a ‘to do’ list providing the means to raise concerns and recommendations regarding the wellbeing of the supported person.

The sensors which measure temperature, relative humidity and movement of people allows carers to check remotely and identify potential issues/concerns such as the home being too cold or there being no movement for a prolonged time.
