Fraunhofer technology developed for “personal safety in every situation” highlighted at the largest trade show for the medical sector



The GoLiveClip technology developed by Fraunhofer AICOS in partnership with the Dutch company Gociety Solutions, was exhibited at MEDICA, the most important trade show for the medical sector. This wearable device that presents itself as “the all-in-one safety clip” was singled out as one of the most interesting solutions exhibited at the trade fair, by one of Germany’s biggest newspapers, the Bild.  


MEDICA, the world's largest medical fair opened its doors in Düsseldorf, Germany, from November 12th to November 15th, and gathered more than 5,100 exhibitors who presented their new products and innovative applications within the medical sector for more than 120,000 visitors. GoLiveClip, a device that enables the user to alert emergency contacts through an alert button, registers daily physical activity and can detect and even evaluate the risk of falls was one of the innovative products present at this fair.

The GoLiveClip is one of the results of the applied research that AICOS has been developing in the field of Ambient Assisted Living (AAL). This device works in connection with the GoLivePhone app, already available on Google Play Store, which includes features such as calls to emergency contacts, alerts for medicines taking, GPS location, among others.

The technology that served as the basis for this product was developed at AICOS, resulting from projects Smart Companion, an Android application designed specifically to meet the needs of the senior population, and Pandlets, motion sensors for wireless devices that allow, e.g., the monitoring of physical activity and detection of falls.

The commercial launch of this product reinforces the role of AICOS as an R&D institution with a strong industry oriented approach, able to carry out applied research with direct utility to its partners and customers, and at the same time contribute to the improvement of the quality of life of the end users.

Amongst more than 5,100 exhibitors present at MEDICA, the GoLiveClip wearable device deserved a spotlight in of one of Germany's most relevant newspapers, the Bild, which distinguished it as one of the most interesting solutions presented at the fair. The newspaper article addressed one of the main advantages of GoLiveClip: helping to solve patients' problems while simultaneously having the potential to significantly diminish the workload of the Health Professionals.
