The fair is a fantastic opportunity for Neat to present its technology to a big number of participants and open up the possibility of future collaborations and new projects. In addition, it also constitutes a reinforcement of its international strategy and strengthens its alliance with Legrand Group. Serafin Quintanilla, Product Area Deputy Manager in Neat and present at the fair, has explained “for Neat is an opportunity to show the latest developments for nursing homes and hospitals on Legrand’s stand; and in general all the technology that we design for a better service and comfort for the elderly people.

During the launch event of the Legrand Eliot program in Australia, NOVO, the Neat’s new telecare terminal, was exhibited, integrated with a blood pressure device.
The event named Eliot Launch, was held on July 5 and took place at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA), at the Quayside Room, overlooking Syndey’s spectacular harbour, city skyline, the iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge.
In addition to NOVO, several technological innovations of Legrand were also presented and Legrand senior executives gave conferences on the importance and repercussion of the Eliot program.
Eliot (a contraction of Electricity and Internet of Things, IoT) was announced two years ago with Legrand describing it as a program designed to speed up the deployment of its connected devices that would “facilitate the emergence of connected buildings wherever IoT can enhance use value for all users.”
The CEO of Legrand Australia and New Zeland Tony Berland told IoT Hub that the company felt the time was now right to launch in Australia. “It’s not only a matter of technology, it’s about how we can bring the product to market,” he said.
At the Australian launch, Legrand said it was mobilising the whole Legrand group behind Eliot with the aim being “to revitalise communication about Legrand products, wherever the Internet of Things can provide users with additional benefits.”

Neat Group was present at the conference entitled “People-centered care in the field of dementias”, which was held last October 18 in the State Reference Center for care and intervention with people with Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias and their families (CRE Alzheimer) located in the pretty city of Salamanca.
The conference was given by the expert gerontologist Teresa Martínez who focused on the model of care centered on the person and its application in dementias.
This model was explained as a “more rational and fairer approach where the dignity and the defense of the autonomy of the person are defended and where great importance is given to the knowledge of the habits of the person living in the nursing home, -which is called ‘life history´- involving the relatives very directly and obtaining very beneficial results for the elderly”, “José Luis Barroso, Key Account Manager from Neat Group, told us, after his active participation in the conference.
Neat Group has always opted for a care model in which patient is the protagonist, and for this reason we have developed solutions as our dementia system that facilitate the attention of the users improving their autonomy within the nursing home.
