Europe is getting delightfully grey. We appreciate this by launching a CareStore of apps and devices. Assisted living can turn the trick for old Europe.
15% of Europeans are above the age of 65. That is more than 75 million people.
65 % of Europeans have jobs. These jobs cover all expenses in the 27 member states.
Of Europe's GDP is spent on healthcare. Every penny counts.
By 2015 there will be more than
75 million people above 65 years
in Europe, placing a pressure on the working population and huge pressure on innovating the healthcare domain to facilitate the change to come.
A Green Paper on Demographic Change launched by the Commission shows a vast shortage of people in Europe's working age by 2030

In Italy the proportion of workers employed in domestic positions born outside Italy increased remarkably from 20% in 2001
The road towards seamless healthcare is bumpy, but the task is quite simple. We need new ideas, technologies and services to realize a modern, cost-effective healthcare.

We don't mind raising the bar a little. That is why we aim to create a cost-competitive and user-friendly platform.
On the contrary to looking like three guys in a garage, we are a team of devoted professionals, to whom this means the world.
Political correctness might not be top of our morning list. But we are actually trying to fire back here! Then who are we aiming at? Why not say closed down, system owners with silo solutions that don't care where the world is going? None mentioned, none forgotten.
Today, a large number of assisted living technologies coexist without benefiting from one another. They have different user interfaces, communication structures and maintenance plans (yada yada yada), which all in all limits the uptake of already existing technologies that could strengthen the solid European healthcare. And keep a cool eye on the grey gold of Europe.
