We believe that growing older should not stop people from living independently. Sentimoto aims to enable seniors to look after their own health by giving them information about their daily routines and how they change over time. To feel more secure, Sentimoto encourages users to be connected to the people who care most about them, by letting them share their data with those they trust and rely on.
We believe that carers provided with up-to-date physiological and contextual information can gain a well-rounded picture of their client’s well-being and how it develops over time. Sentimoto enables unobtrusive remote monitoring that bridges the gap between care visits, can help prioritise clients, and alerts the carer when abnormalities are detected.
Family and Friends
It can be a challenge to take care of ageing relatives when you are not around. Sentimoto aims to give family members the information they require to be there when needed most. We help families understand key insights from day-to-day living patterns; whether it is losing interest in social activities or sleeping less, Sentimoto gives family members the information they require to be there when needed most.
How it works
We are developing novel methods for the analysis of long-term physical activity, physiological and environment data collected by wearable sensors, with the aim of identifying social withdrawal and altered behavioural patterns that are predictive of decreased quality of life and a need for social care intervention. We aim to provide easy, trusted sharing of these insights, putting well-being information into the hands of older people and their circle of care.

Nominet Trust is the UK’s leading Tech for Good funder, supporting early stage digital tech companies deliver social change – we’re very excited to be part of this phenomenal network, and are looking forward to the top-notch events they have in store for us: the latest one was a course on “The Art of Stage Presence” with James Whittaker. Awesome.
We’ve been quiet for the last few months, working like busy bees to design our software and analysis algorithms, and trying to prove our technology in the field.
We are excited to announce the results of our first trial, conducted in collaboration with Oomph! — an award-winning social enterprise providing inclusive and effective exercise classes for older adults.
The trial took place in the context of a carehome, where Oomph! delivers fitness classes (and fun!) to residents. Our joint study showed that our technology can be used successfully to reliably evaluate the quality and short-term impact of activities and exercise programs in the context of carehomes. Feedback from the trial was very positive:
the instructor was very interested with the results, and being able to get a better, more objective view of the performance and improvement of each participant
participants were able to compare their own performance between sessions, as well as with each other
this enabled them to motivate each other, as well as relate their workout outcomes and success in more intuitive ways (e.g. comparing the energy and intensity of part of the workout to its equivalent brisk walk to the local supermarket and back, makes it much clearer what level of activity has been achieved, and how one improves over time!)
In short, we were ecstatic that both the instructors and the participants felt the technology was beneficial, unintrusive, and very promising — download our impact report for some nice quotes!
We are now in the process of planning further trials, to show the potential for our technology to gauge longer term changes, and produce quantifiable measures of wellbeing and appropriate insights from the data, to help older people and their carers manage their lifestyles more safely, and more enjoyably.
Here at Sentimoto headquarters, we are all very excited to be moving closer to our goal every day.
In fact, we have some very exciting announcements for you just around the corner — stay tuned!
