The ibilight invites you into the home of your grandparent. They keep the light, you use the app. The simplest way to reduce loneliness, developed to accommodate to the needs of both young and old.
The ibilight is a lamp that can only be turned on by you through the app. Your grandparents will be happy to see that you thought about them!
To avoid complex interfaces, your grandparents can reach out to you by just touching the ibilight. This will send a notification to your phone. You decide what the touch means, creating your own language.
When your grandparents are lonely, they often forget to go to sleep or eat on time. Set routines for the ibilight to make your grandparents part of your day and help them stay on track!
The ibilight empowers your grandparents to overcome loneliness. They are the ones who need to take action, and they do so by responding to your signals. It is the first step to enhance their confidence and become socially active.
Rather than feeling monitored, your grandparent maintains full independence with the ibilight. You can check in on them in the most subtle way, waiting for them to send you a notification to understand everything is fine.
Often, loneliness causes loss of routine and unhealthy habits. This has fatal effects on health, such as cognitive decline. By turning on the ibilight, you establish a common routine with your grandparent and become part of each other's day. This helps them to live happier and healthier.
The ibilight is currently still in development. This means that you can still help us shape it and create impact together with us!
