Join our Team!

AssistMe is improving care through innovation. We are the largest driving force for technical innovation in elderly care, which enables more normality and humanity in old age. To fulfil this vision, the first solution we are developing is an intelligently-connected incontinence pant for elderly people. It can detect the amount and type of excrement in real time. If certain threshold values are exceeded, a recommendation for action is sent to nursing staff.

Our solution will minimize incontinence-related medical issues, help people in need of care to regain their dignity, and reduce unnecessary costs for families, care institutions, and insurers while decreasing stressful work for healthcare workers.
