Remote senior care monitoring startup EchoCare Technologies has started manufacturing its radar-based, non-invasive solution for elderly people due to a rise in demand following the coronavirus (Covid-19) pandemic. To increase its production capabilities, Echocare announced on Thursday it was initiating an A1 investment round. The company develops a non-wearable elderly care home system based on radar technology. It automatically detects and alerts users on a variety of emergency or abnormal behaviors at home through its ECHO solution. After successful trials in Japan and Australia, there has been a growing need to look after the elderly from afar ever since lockdowns took place across the world.
