Resident inquiry leads to U.S. presence for Dutch smart sensor technology company
Dutch smart sensor technology company Sensara thanks a resident of RiverWoods, a continuing care retirement community in Exeter, NH, for its growing U.S. presence.
Bill, a resident of the CCRC, belonged to a resident / staff member task force there, convened in late 2016 to explore technologies and processes that could be used to improve residents’ lives. He saw a technology article in The Economist that included Sensara, an organization spun off from the government-funded Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research. The technology is designed to improve resident quality of life, safety and privacy.
“He was the first to reach out to us and say, ‘Hey, are you guys active in the U.S?’ ” Paul Ruijgt, Sensara business development director, told McKnight’s Senior Living. “At that point, we were not, but because of him we started the conversation.”
