About MySense

MySense is a wellbeing analytics platform built on compassion, by people who understand what it's like to care for a loved one. But we're also a team of dedicated (self-proclaimed) nerds, tech is what we know and love. So, we have combined these two drives and created a product we can be proud of.

The idea is that peace of mind about a loved one's wellbeing should be at people's fingertips no matter who or where they are. To do this, we created a wearable device and 11 sensors that can be placed around someone's home. Each sensor picks up information about a key activity. This means looking at drinking and eating habits, toilet usage, sleep patterns and heart rate (approximately 5,000 data points). These sensors collect data that our AI then analyses for any patterns of decline in wellbeing. When we start to notice that something isn't looking ideal, we send caregivers notifications so they can address problems before they escalate.
