Eskaton Innovation Lab

As an Aging2.0 member, Eskaton invests in partnerships with technology companies that are focused on improving the lives of older adults. Eskaton engages its residents in the development process to provide valuable feedback to engineers. Our recent innovations have been focused in the following areas.

Resident and Family Portal

Eskaton partnered with K4 Connect to test a resident and family portal solution. During the three month pilot, 22 residents at two Eskaton communities received a tablet and a suite of smart home devices to make connecting with their family, home and community easier.

Hip Protection

Eskaton partnered with Active Protective in developing and testing a hip protector that senses a fall, deploys airbags around the hips, and sends an alert to a designated person. Watch video:
