Microsoft CEO, Satya Nadella, has praised pioneering innovative technology that’s being used by Loreburn Housing Association, in partnership with CM2000, in relation to falls prevention technology solution, ARMED, in his keynote speech.
Mr Nadella made the comments, last week, at the ‘Microsoft Future Decoded’ conference in London last week.
In his keynote speech, Mr Nadella said:
“Cutting edge technology needs to be available to non-profits, charity organisations who can also deploy it and reap the benefits.
“This is what we have seen with Loreburn Housing Association. I had the chance to learn what they were doing, but more importantly what the technology provider CM2000 is doing to help with the epidemic of falls among the elderly.
“If we think about it, falls can lead to fatalities, but even if it’s not a fatality, one of the challenges of an elderly person falling is the healthcare challenge that then ensues. The best way to deal with this is to have preventative care, delivered through sensors, wearable technology that works through machine algorithms.”
