San Francisco Chinatown is full of elderly citizens like my grandmother. And according to the statistics, more than 70% of them suffer from cardiovascular disease. We want to connect elderly parents and their family members in a way that doesn’t intrude on their independence, but make sure they’re being taken care of.

We chose to use a Fitbit watch.

Heartbee allows you take care of your loved ones by providing a dashboard of your family’s heart rates as relayed by the Fitbit watch.

Using Fitbit’s API, we created a demo of the watch you’d give your elderly parents to wear. They can track their current heart rate, receive messages, and call for help if need be. When their heart rate reaches above a certain threshold, a notification is send to their family member.

Using AWS, we created the dashboard for family members and caregivers. We can check on elderly parents, send messages, track their heart rates and locations, using Fitbit sensors and Hypertrack. We can also see the health score of our family members, aka our “hive”.

Using Agora.io's SDK, we enabled real-time video streaming so family members can create their fitness channels and watch each other. When emergency happens, we notify the family members directly by calling them via the app.

Using HyperTrack's SDK, we enabled location tracking and historical path. In the iOS mobile app, family members can see each others' last visited places and 15-mins path, and when an emergency happens, they know exactly where to rescue the person in danger.

Our apps (Fitbit Ionic, Web, and iOS mobile) work together to keep everyone updated on the health status of their loved ones and keep everyone in check. It can easily be scaled into a tablet, an Anroid app, and other platforms.

HeartBee is targeted to people with elderly parents at risk of heart attacks. So if you or someone you know has a elderly loved one you care about, give them the freedom they need but also the peace of mind you need, with Heartbee.
