Jupl Launches Wearable Healthcare Technology in Australia

Jupl launches wearable healthcare technology in Australia

Partners with Illawarra Retirement Trust (IRT) in healthcare technology trial

Auckland 18 October 2017 – Jupl, an innovative New Zealand software company, today announced it has partnered with The Illawarra Retirement Trust (IRT) to trial the latest in wearable health technology.

Jason Malone, Chief Executive, IRT Care, says the trial is an initial pilot to test the latest in wearable healthcare technology.

“Our goal is to deliver the best quality healthcare possible. This pilot programme is the next step in delivering improved aged healthcare, by providing our residents with the latest technologies that will allow them to enjoy a better quality of life,” said Malone.

Central to the trial is Jupl’s application running on Samsung Gear S3 Frontier smartwatches. The Gear S3 is the first smartwatch to ship with an embedded SIM, meaning it is essentially a mobile phone and doesn’t require any other device or phone for transmitting information. The Jupl application integrates with the Samsung watch and Cisco’s Jasper cloud service to deliver wearable healthcare technology that provides 24/7 monitoring and support for the wearer.

Gui Feijo, Jupl’s General Manager in Australia, said, “We integrated the Samsung smartwatch into our health and safety platform to provide a fully mobile solution for aged care providers such as IRT. The service will enable IRT to connect residents, who may be in an emergency situation, to IRT’s central monitoring facility at the press of a button. It also sends the wearer’s location, as well as critical health data, to IRT and/or family members through the combination of the Jupl app and web portal.”

This new healthcare technology was developed following an intensive international collaboration between Spark NZ, Samsung and Cisco Jasper, alongside New Zealand software company Jupl.

According to Jupl co-founder and CEO Alan Brannigan, international cooperation has been a key factor in the success of the project to date.

“Such a collaboration between several international partners involved thousands of hours of work, pushing the boundaries of innovation in the way technology is traditionally utilised and developed. This has provided us with a fully scalable global distribution model and is game-changing technology.”

“This solution has been made possible, in large part, by the roaming capability embedded in the M2M SIM solution provided by Spark, and managed with the IoT connectivity platform provided by Cisco Jasper,” said Brannigan.

This is the first time that the Jupl solution has been deployed in Australia. It has been available in New Zealand for some time, and is now also trialling it in the United States and South America.

Howard Davis Review: From Free Press to Fancy Dress - Spielberg's The Post

Stephen Spielberg's The Post is an opportune newsroom drama in which a corrupt Republican president wages war against the "liberal media," as its plucky proprietor risks economic and legal ruin to bring the Pentagon Papers to public light. Its true protagonist is publisher Katharine Graham, a stringently diplomatic businesswoman, reluctantly compelled to take an overtly political stance in the interests of democracy and freedom of the press.

Howard Davis Review: The Black Dog of Empire - Joe Wright's Darkest Hour'

On the eve of England's contorted efforts to negotiate its ignominious retreat from Europe and the chaotic spectacle of the Tory party ratifying its undignified departure from a union originally designed to prevent another World War, there has been a renewed appetite for movies about 1940.

Howard Davis Review: Anger Begets Anger - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

For fans of what Ricky Gervais termed "number movies" (Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven, Ocean's 11, Se7en), Martin McDonagh's latest offering will be a welcome addition to the roster. The Irish playwright turned screenwriter and director has produced another quirky and darkly comic tragedy that evolves around the futility of anger and grief, retribution and revenge. More>>

Howard Davis: Sexting in George Dawe's Genevieve - Part I

Te Papa's permanent collection includes an enormous oil painting by the English artist George Dawe called Genevieve (from by a poem by S.T. Coleridge entitled 'Love') that was prominently featured in the 2013 exhibition Angels & Aristocrats. Compare the massive immensity of the bard's gorgeously gilded harp with the stubby metallic handle of the Dark Knight's falchion, both suggestively positioned at crotch-level. Dawe's enormous canvas invokes a whole history of blushing that pivots around a direct connection to sexual arousal. More>>

They also have a history rooted deeply in revolution and fighting for the rights of their nomadic Tamashek speaking culture and people. More>>

Gordon Campbell: Best New Music Of 2017

Any ‘best of list’ has to be an exercise in wishful thinking, given the splintering of everyone’s listening habits... But maybe… it could be time for the re-discovery of the lost art of listening to an entire album, all the way through. Just putting that idea out there. More>>
