About MySense

MySense is a health and wellbeing analytics platform built on compassion, by people who understand what it’s like to care for a loved one. But we’re also a team of dedicated (self-proclaimed) nerds, tech is what we know and love. So, we have combined these two drives and created a product we can be proud of.

The idea is that peace of mind about a loved one’s wellbeing should be at people’s fingertips no matter who or where they are. To do this, we have created a wearable device and an array of sensors that can be placed around someone’s home. Each sensor picks up information about a key activity. This means looking at drinking and eating habits, toilet usage, sleep patterns and heart rate. These sensors collect data that our AI then analyses for changes in patterns of health and wellbeing. Ensuring that any issues are noticed as they arise.
