Telefónica Caalyx system announced (Spain)

Telefónica has developed a home monitoring system that can collect five different vital signs, detects falls and transmit data to a caretaker centre. “The Caalyx solution, which is part of a €3m ambient assisted living project, received funding of €1.85m under the 6th Research Framework Programme of the EU.” Telefónica is now working to integrate the technology into a wearable textile. eHeathEurope item Telefónica R&D website, English version.
