Introducing AbiBird: A brand new way for older Australians to retain their independence

Australians are living longer, and most people want to retain their independence and remain in their own home.

‘Ageing in place’, as it is referred to by the health and government sectors, has a host of benefits, but there are some risks as well.

The reality is:

  • one in three people aged 65+ has a substantial fall each year
  • one in two people aged 80+ has multiple falls per year
  • thirty per cent of people who fall need medical attention.

AbiBird is designed to help give families peace of mind that their loved ones are ok, and alert them if something is not.

AbiBird is a small, unobtrusive device that can be placed on a wall or a shelf. It uses world-first intelligent technology and a discreet motion sensor to track ‘normal’ day and night activity that is displayed on Smartphones via an app. A quick glance at the app will confirm that your loved one is going about their routine as usual. If activity exceeds normal routines, or motion stops, AbiBird will immediately send an alert to you and your nominated network.

A key difference between AbiBird and alternative products is that AbiBird offers wireless, unobtrusive monitoring without the need for a wearable device or a telephone or internet connection. Also, as there’s no camera or audio recording, privacy is maintained.
