Aging-in-place with the help of a smart service


Navigil, a company focused on digital services in the social and health care sector, has developed a solution that enables older people to live longer safely and independently in their own homes. The developed service and the safety wristwatch enable collection of wellness information remotely and sharing results and care tasks with relatives and, if necessary, with professionals.


The health and wellness market has long been in global transformation. Increasingly aging population affects the resourcing of care at many levels. The situation worsened during the corona pandemic. The resilience of nursing staff is being tested and there is an increasing shortage of care resources. Often the best solution for everyone is to enable older people to age-in-place independently at home.


A digital solution for everyday safety

Modern and easy to use services are available to make everyday life easier and improve safety. The wristwatch developed by Navigil and the data collected with it can be used in many ways. With the help of the service, you can easily monitor your loved one’s wellness. However, the solution differs from other safety watches in that the customizable service seamlessly connects relatives and, if necessary, care providers. Family members can monitor user’s wellness and, if changes in daily routines or long term trends occur, the user can be contacted immediately via the phone features of the watch. The watch can independently alert for help, for instance due to a fall or immobility. Data collected by the watch can be viewed on a computer and now also with the new Share and Care App on a smartphone.


Global demand

Navigil’s solution is already in use in 30 countries and the success in global markets continues. There is a worldwide demand for Finnish technology expertise. In Finland, you can inquire about the service directly from Navigil or from companies that provide care services.

  • Demand for digital wellness solutions is growing rapidly. By developing new and easy-to-use solutions, we make everyday life easier for seniors and enable a cost-effective way to improve the quality of life. At the same time, we reduce the worries of relatives when information about our loved one is easily obtained with the help of an intelligent service, says CEO Matti Räty.
