SensCom – About us
SensCom AS – the company that has developed the DignaCare solution – was founded by Vidar Rinde Halvorsen in 2018. The stated purpose of the company is to develop user-friendly sensor technology with the capacity to alert care staff and relatives when a care home resident needs attention and changing. The idea arose when Vidar’s mother needed care and moved into a nursing home. Vidar was well aware that the workload at nursing homes and in the home care service is huge, and there is little time to provide care beyond the purely practical. That is why he considered it absolutely essential to come up with smart, reliable solutions that could free up time to give elderly people – and the people who care for them – more dignity in their everyday lives.
«SensCom is to make the world a better place for people who need care – and for people who provide it – through the use of technology.»
A sensor technology solution that alerts care staff and relatives when residents need attention and changing. The solution has been developed in consultation with the care sector and opens the door to:
Increased dignity and life quality for the users
Improved working days for care staff
Improved care at a lower cost through resource optimisation
Our achievements to date
- With support from Innovation Norway, SensCom has established an innovation project in partnership with SINTEF to use additional sensor data to predict incidents. The objective of the project is to use data from DignaCare to predict future incidents and need for attention. In other words, it is to improve toilet routines for care home residents and patients so that they no longer have to make use of their incontinenceincontinence Involuntary loss of control of the bladder and / or intestines. product. If we can predict incidents, care staff can also implement preventative measures. The prediction functionality would also result in altering the care focus from a reactive to a proactive form of working, i.e. it will ensure residents are taken to the toilet in time.
- SensCom has been granted patents in the United States, EU and Norway for the sensor technology, and has applied for patents in Japan and Australia.
- DignaCare is CE-classified as Medical Device Class 1.
