Pria by BLACK+DECKER, created in partnership by Pillo Health and BLACK+DECKER, is a robot assistant designed to help adults and their caregivers manage their healthcare at home while aging in place.
The technology that powers Pria, developed by Pillo Health, features facial recognition and artificial intelligence, as well as a mobile app, and is engineered to schedule up to 28 medication doses, provide reminder alerts, dispense proper medication at the proper times, and provide the user with fast access to family or caregivers via a voice command and built-in camera.
“Our goal is to help Pria by BLACK+DECKER address the needs of people who want to improve their quality of life and safety while living in the comfort of their own homes,” says Emanuele Musini, co-founder and CEO of Pillo Health, in a media release.
“Together, we’re also creating a way for caregivers to connect with loved ones in an impactful way, and broadening our portfolio of home health and wellness products that allow adults to stay in their homes longer thanks to an engaging smart device, mobile app and data catered to their individual needs.”
“Pria is the first true home care companion designed specifically to facilitate the well-being of independent individuals at home, while providing a platform for caregivers to monitor and manage the delivery of medication and care plans,” states Sean O’Brien, director, Health-at-Home Technologies, Stanley Healthcare.
