Smart Macadam uses innovative technologies to preserve the autonomy
of people weakened by age, handicap
We are living in an unprecedented era which makes it possible to use the most innovative technologies to help the most vulnerable people. This conviction motivated the creation of Smart Macadam in 2018. Our group of passionate entrepreneurs, engineers and researchers took the decision to join forces to meet such a challenge. Huge bulks of data, great algorithms and promising technologies are available today to invent a better future. We're willing to create innovative solutions to help preserve the autonomy of the most vulnerable ones. Helped by BPI, incubated by Atlanpole in Nantes, accompanied by IMT Atlantique, Smart Macadam helps improve the daily lives of the elderly, sick and disabled.
It takes time to understand the difficulties encountered by frail people. We communicate with sick, elderly and disabled individuals as we aim to become attentive witnesses of their daily lives. We involve health professionals to save time and avoid mistakes. We study the technical, functional and legal constraints of existing solutions. Observing is key to design effective solutions.
With the help of real users and thanks to the support of a dedicated Scientific Committee, Smart Macadam designs prototypes of new solutions, resulting from our observations. Co-design, strict rigor and a huge amount of patience are critical to design efficient prototypes, meeting the requirements and expectations of the most demanding users.
It is essential to confront each solution with the expectations of many users not involved in the design of the prototypes. Experimental campaigns, dedicated focus groups and field tests help us improve the way our solutions works and match the highest level of expectations. Our aim: turn every prototype into a truly relevant solution for the greatest number of people.
Mementop is the first solution designed by Smart Macadam. It is aimed at elderly people eager to preserve their autonomy. Mementop offers seniors and their caregivers the following items:
By combining a human approach and the use of innovative technologies, Mementop improves the daily life of the elderly while relieving their caregivers.
