GoLive solutions, comprised by the GoLiveClip, GoLivePhone and GoLiveAssist was developed in partnership by Fraunhofer Portugal AICOS and the Dutch company Gociety Solutions, having in mind the health and safety of the general population and of seniors in particular.
The GoLiveClip (GLC) is an easy-to-use, powerful sensor that combines activity monitoring, an alarm button, a fall risk analyzer and a fall detector. It provides direct practical support for an active, healthy and safe living. It comes with an alarm button that notifies pre-programed emergency contacts if the user presses it, but it also automatically registers a falling incident and dispatches notifications in case the user is unable to reach the alarm button. The device also automatically keeps track of movements and activity, such as the amount of steps the user takes, total time of activity and spent calories, among other variables. Thanks to this collection of data, it can calculate the user's risk of falling.
This information is displayed in the GoLivePhone (GLP) app, which is compatible with any smartphone with Bluetooth and Android 5.1, or higher. GoLivePhone turns an Android smartphone into a smart companion with largely simplified controls – allowing people to make use of today’s abundance of smart functions without requiring any prior technological knowledge, like: chatting with friends, taking photos, playing games, sharing the significant moments with friends and family, and being fully connected to the rest of the world. Everyone will have easy access to the full range of technological possibilities available today. The GLP can be used as a new launcher for Android phones that replaces the default UI with a simplified version or, alternatively, just as a set of applications in the default launcher of the smartphone. The GLP offers other important features too, such as: location monitoring and geo-fencing, easy access to emergency contacts, and medication management, among others. Its purpose is to bring seniors and users with low technological literacy levels to the Information Society by providing them with an easy to use smartphone with significant features.
Finally, the GoLiveAssist is a web portal that allows authorized caregivers to remotely access and control several features in the caretaker’s smartphone (e.g. show/hide applications, add location to points of interest, among others) while gaining real-time insights into the health-related metrics they generate.
