Sensors Harness Skills for Independence at ADAPT (UCP-NYC)
SimplyHome is pleased to announce our work with ADAPT to incorporate our customized assistive technology services to promote more independent living for residents with ADAPT Community Network (formerly United Cerebral Palsy - NYC). ADAPT is the leading nonprofit agency in New York City providing direct services, technology and advocacy for children and adults with cerebral palsy and other disabilities.
"It's My Own Routine"
One ADAPT resident, Efrain, uses SimplyHome technologies to increase independence with respect to his health. He uses Telehealth devices that record his blood sugar and blood pressure levels, and each device notifies staff if those levels exceed set parameters.
Efrain also uses a medication dispenser, which allows him to start his day and take medication without assistance from staff. “I like just getting up and being able to get going,” said Efrain. “It’s my own routine, I don’t have to wait for staff.”
