miiCARE Ready to Scale

Aiming to keep our aging population safe and healthy in their own homes for as long as possible, miiCARE is transforming the way care is provided to the 13 million elderly people in the UK.

They are able to do this through miiCUBE, their award-winning, AI-based assistive technology solution, which has been dubbed by the UK’s largest NHS organisation as ‘Alexa for the elderly’.

miiCUBE is a MedTech HaaS (Healthcare as a Service) solution which mimics basic human senses to create situational awareness, offering an immersive, companion-based experience that is not only empowering its users to take control of their own health, but also helping to address loneliness in the UK.

By interacting with an ecosystem of IoT sensors, wearable devices and telehealth equipment within the home, miiCUBE is able to create situational awareness and learn about the routines of its users.

Best of all, it requires no internet connection and in the event of an emergency, the relevant responder is notified by miiCUBE.

The benefits of miiCARE’s solution have already been recognised, with the company securing its first contract with NHS England (ahead of Tunstall, Philips and IBM) as part of the National Healthy New Towns Initiative, before moving on to secure another contract with East Kent NHS, as part of the flagship Dementia Village Project.

The company is preparing to file 6 patents for its technology, identified as part of an IP audit funded through a grant from the Intellectual Property Office.

The team is made up of experts from a diverse background, comprising technologists, data scientists, clinicians, and veteran business leaders working together to not only positively impact the elderly and their families, but also the NHS and local authorities.

With first contracts and 250 pre-orders placed, miiCARE is raising up to £400k in EIS funding, with a minimum target of £100k, to accelerate its product development and growth, and fully capitalise on the opportunity to build a new telecare brand leader in the UK, and later globally.

Other solutions to assist elderly people to live in their homes do exist, but most are focusing on wearables and pendants products, without an eco-system of monitoring sensors and AI-based assistive technology. Their focus is primarily on monitoring and alarming oriented solutions.

Crucially, none are addressing the non-digitally connected elderly population, nor introducing assistive technology and acting as a companion to the elderly. miiCUBE is the only MedTech solution for elderly people who don’t have the internet, a smartphone or a tablet.
