Nortek Security & Control Introduces Integrated Proactive Wellness Solution
Numera Libris with Numera EverThere pair existing advanced mPERS fall detection with cloud-based health data and personal medical device connectivity.
PROVIDENCE, R.I. – Nortek Security & Control has added health measurement data capturing capabilities via wireless connection to its Numera Libris mPERS solution. The solution will now integrate proactive health data so seniors and their families, as well as anyone with chronic illnesses, have the tools to track and share important health and activity information, empowering engagement and early intervention, according to the company.

The new solution is designed to drive active and social participation in wellness through objective health data, according to the company.
Health device integration and insights provided by the Numera Libris and accompanying Web-based platform Numera EverThere enable detection of risks with quick intervention, reducing financial burden on caregivers and giving them peace of mind, according to the company. Libris now also connects wirelessly with common medical devices such as pulse oximeters, blood pressure gauges, scales and thermometers. Data from these devices is then automatically uploaded to the EverThere platform to connect individuals, their families and caregivers to promote healthy behaviors.

Users can customize notifications through the EverThere platform based on the individual’s conditions and needs. For example, if an individual has diabetes and regularly checks their glucose levels, notifications can be sent when levels fall below desired predefined targets so the user and their care team are made aware and can discuss modifications to the care plan.
“Today’s solutions are reactive, often don’t integrate with existing devices and systems and aren’t social, therefore they don’t motivate patients to think proactively about their own health,” says Tim Smokoff, group vice president health & wellness, Nortek Security & Control. “By integrating health measurement information like weight, blood pressure and glucose levels, with activities of daily living, a better picture of overall health and wellness is captured.”
