LSCM wins innovation award for elderly care system using XeThru radar sensor

At the 46th International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva back in April 2018, LSCM (Logistics and Supply Chain MultiTech R&D Centre) in Hong Kong secured not only one, but four great awards for their innovations.

Amongst the four awards is a gold medal award for “An Ultra-Wideband Activity Monitoring System for Solitary Elderly” based on Novelda’s X4 XeThru radar sensor.

With the world's population rapidly aging, the industries have been looking for novel technologies to ease manpower and resources needed for the rapid population growth. Set out to help solve this challenge, LSCM’s monitor system is able to measure the activity levels and vital signs of older people and detect any abnormal conditions using the XeThru X4 UWB radar sensor. The data collected can also be analyzed to provide activity-tracker style measurements of sleep duration and daily activity levels. Daily activity goals can thus be recommended to encourage users to exercise and improve sleep quality. This non-contact low-cost and privacy-preserving system provides real-time feedback to help caretakers provide efficient remote monitoring service of the elderly.

LSCM has a long history of cooperation with Novelda and Mr Simon Wong, Chief Executive Officer of LSCM, said

“We are honoured to receive this recognition from the International Exhibition of Inventions of Geneva. Our award-winning projects are focused on serving a broad spectrum of users, and providing convenience and flexibility to the local community. We are pleased that LSCM stands out as a leader in initiating and facilitating innovation and technology adoption. It is our goal to continue to collaborate with the related industries and serve the community better, and we look forward to holding onto this prestigious honour for many years to come.”

All the four award-winning entries are under the theme of smart city development, enhancing the effectiveness of city management and improving people’s quality of living in Hong Kong, and LSCM will continue its important efforts in inspiring continuous innovation and sustainable city development.
