Technis déploie une nouvelle chambre connectée en Grèce en partenariat avec le CERTH

Technis a mis en place en septembre sa nouvelle solution TechnisCare dans une chambre au sein du CERTH, le plus gros centre de recherche médicale en Grèce.

Suite à son lauréat remporté en janvier par Activage Project (le programme de financement de l’Union Européenne récompensant les meilleurs projets liés aux technologies de l’IOT), Technis collabore avec les équipes du CERTH à Thessalonique pour optimiser en permanence sa solution en passe d’être commercialisée.

Les équipes de la start up suisse collaborent ainsi à distance avec les chercheurs locaux pour optimiser et tester leur solution en conditions réelles.
Cette innovation a pour but d’aider le personnel soignant dans son organisation et d’assurer le confort et la sécurité des résidents de maisons de retraite.

Cette technologie connectée est installée via des systèmes de fines dalles au sol, flexibles et modulables, permettant de connaitre en temps réel la position du résident.

Ainsi, Technis a équipé le sol d’une chambre et paramétré son interface en ligne (disponible sur ordinateur et mobile), pour la mettre à disposition du personnel soignant et des chercheurs. Cette dernière permet, entre autres, de détecter les chutes de personnes âgées, les cas d’errance, la fréquence de visites ou d’utilisation des toilettes. Cette innovation est aussi un atout pour les résidents car elle permet l’allumage automatique des lumières lorsqu’un pied est mis au sol.

La solution TechnisCare est un atout non négligeable pour les managers d’établissements de santé, qui pourront gérer au mieux leurs ressources humaines en temps réel et sur le plus long terme. Elle sera commercialisée en début d’année 2020.

A.I. smart flooring start-up Technis raised $1.4M to deploy in the healthcare market

The Lausanne-based startup is taking a major step in its expansion with a second fundraising of $1.4 million, bringing the total investment since its inception to nearly $3 million. An investment that will support marketing and sales of its product into the healthcare market, expected to begin in the first quarter of 2020.

CCI Wiktor Technis

Wiktor Bourée, founder and CEO of Technis.

Technis is in the process of marketing its new offer, Technis Care, the first integrated solution detecting falls and preventing various high-risk situations in healthcare institutions and retirement homes. With the agreement of residents, the solution is deployed under the floor in their rooms and allows for long-term monitoring of their health state. Data related to their physical activity is captured through the floor: number of steps, movement speed and fall detection. This in turn will allow medical staff to drastically improve diagnosis and personalization of the resident’s health care.

Wiktor Bourrée, CEO of Technis: „The flooring market is undergoing a profound transformation and represents millions of square meters installed every day around the world.
Technis connects infrastructures to render them more secure, all the while ensuring the independence of people living there. This funding will help us accelerate our deployment into medical institutions.

Technis‘ development is supported by a strong advisory board, including former CEO of AXA Global Property & Casualty, Gaëlle Olivier.
Olivier Vialle, advisor of Technis, and previously Partner at PwC Strategy is delighted: „Technis disrupts in two ways: an intelligent flooring technology already operational for dozens of customers, and an innovative and profitable business model. Turning the floor into a service is the future of connected infrastructure. I believe Technis to be the clear market leader. “

A concrete application of artificial intelligence already on the market

Technis, a startup from EPFL founded by Wiktor Bourée in 2016, analyzes and provides data for the management and optimization of infrastructures through connected flooring solutions. A thin layer of connected sensors placed under the floor, combined with artificial intelligence, captures and collects a large amount of data related to movement and activity of people in infrastructures, captured in real-time. Applications for the technology include counting people traffic, detecting falls, or triggering alarms – all of this through a truly non-intrusive solution.

With 14 innovation awards, the Technis solution has already been rolled out in several well-known institutions in the facility management market. Their list of customers includes the prestigious CERN, SciencesPo Paris, ISS, Palexpo and the Fondation Beyeler.
