Amity - a division of Xorcom Ltd.The developer of Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) sensor based system
Xorcom Ltd. (a private company) was founded in 2004, it manufactures and sells telecommunications equipment – IP PBX systems, IP phones, VoIP gateways to more than 100 countries worldwide.
In 2011 the company started a new division within Xorcom, Amity, that focuses in elderly support research and development.
The division developed Ambient Assisted Living (AAL) sensor based system that includes all the communications and data management technology of our telecommunications division. Together with Eshel (the largest organization that develops services for the elderly in Israel) we ran a pilot in sixty lonely elderly homes in central and northern parts of Israel.
Later on we adopted Amity system for the institutional market – senior homes, assisted living and skilled nursing departments, and installed the system in many institutions in Israel.
For the last two years we’ve developed artificial intelligence, neural network based technology and integrated it into the Amity system. The recent developments made most of the older sensors redundant and increased the performance of Amity many folds. At the same time, the new technology reduced the complexity and the cost of the system.
