An advanced new imaging technology developed by Vayyar uses radio waves to detect emergency situations and call for help.
Senior citizens living alone can experience falls, serious health problems and a deterioration in physical state, with no one around to respond. Situations like this require immediate medical help. Current monitoring solutions such as cameras, invade privacy and create a sense of discomfort in the home. Wearables and fall alert wristbands make many users feel self conscious, and old, and can be ineffective if the user forgets or refuses to wear them.
Vayyar, based in Israel, is bringing its revolutionary product to European partners. The company’s sensors use radio wave technology to create a 4D real-time image that tracks, displays and evaluates everything that happens in the home or care facility. Vayyar’s technology immediately and automatically notifies a designated caregiver or emergency responders in the event of a fall and identifies deterioration in health and breathing patterns.
Vayyar’s technology also offers a breakthrough solution for professional medical and assisted living facilities by preventing and detecting falls. Patients in hospitals and nursing homes can be monitored without cameras, to ensure their privacy is respected. In addition, Vayyar’s fall detection tracks vitals and behavior patterns to help determine if a patient’s health is showing signs of deterioration. This information can be used for pre-emptive predicting and alerting of patients exhibiting early stage signs of being at risk of falls or injuries. With this technology in hand, significant stress is relieved from nursing and medical staff, while enhancing the security and safety of the facility.
This smart home solution also detects irregular activity in the house, offering perimeter protection and intruder alerts. In the event of a fire, the new sensors are able to inform emergency responders of the location and condition of occupants. Learn more at www.vayyar.com

Vayyar (from the Hebrew term: “to see”) was founded as an imaging company in 2011, when they developed a fast and cost-effective method to detect early-stage breast cancer. Since then, their mission has been to make advanced imaging devices available to the general public. Visit Vayyar at IFA’s ShowStoppers, in Hall 25, Booth 244.
