Sanoste

Semi-Finalist

A digital platform to deliver social and stimulating activities for older adults using teleconference technology.

Activities such as chair exercise, yoga and discussion groups are online with an instructor present to motivate and guide the participants. The activities are interactive and real-time (not videos). As there is a group attending the activity, it is an efficient and cost-effective way to deliver services.

To participate in the activity, the end-user answers the incoming call to a tablet device initiated by the service provider. The connection is always two-way: the service provider and end-user both see and hear each other. In the opinion of our users, the communication using teleconference technology is intensive and truly interactive.

The activities are purchased from a web store. With the platform the groups and the delivery of the activities are being managed. Furthermore the platform makes it possible to scale the business effectively.
