Lively Inc.

Lively (www.mylively.com) keeps older adults living independently longer. It provides an activity-sharing experience with its product using passive activity sensors that are applied to everyday objects in an older adult’s home and LivelyGram, which gives family members a way to share the events of their life with elder loved ones through pictures and short messages.

Lively’s passive activity sensors log day-to-day patterns like kitchen activity, time spent getting out and when medication is taken. Its connected device uses a built-in cellular connection to then gather activity signals from each of the sensors to compare daily events with a normal routine and healthy preferences. Lively allows secure and private sharing of activity patterns via an at-a-glance login that can be accessed through a computer, tablet or smartphone. It’s the right way for older adults to share how they’re doing without being too intrusive and gives persons control of what is shared with family and friends.

With LivelyGram, pictures and short messages from an older adult’s family and friends can be uploaded to Lively that are then automatically published and sent by regular mail twice monthly in a personalized mailer. It’s perfect for non-internet users or just those who love something they can hold in their hand to share.

Lively will be available in the U.S. by the end of September; versions planned for other International markets will be announced by Q4 2013.

A one-time cost of $149 includes two months of free service with LivelyGram. After two months, its pay-as-you-go subscription is only $19.95 per month with no contract required and easily cancellable at any time.
