Who we are
TeiaCare was founded in 2015 by three friends all under the age of 30: Luca Iozzia, Guido Magrin, and Roberto Salamina. The experience of Guido’s grandfather in a long-term care facility convinced the team to seek solutions to optimize care of guests in such facilities.
We began by prototyping a device capable of detecting small disturbances such as arrhythmia that may be a sign of a more severe condition.
This gave birth to the HeartWatch app, combining a fitness bracelet and a smartphone. A few months later, we devised a smart system that can detect micro chromatic facial differences that may signal an underlying pathology. Today our Digital Assistant monitors the movements of bed-care patients, assuring constant vigilance to nursing staff and nursing assistants and the calm lucidity needed to optimize care.
In a fast-progressing world, we believe that the quest for innovation and technological advances must be focused on affirming or restoring the value and dignity of human life. We dedicate particular attention to people who are unable to determine their own level of wellbeing and are entrusted to the care of others.
Identify and respond to essential human needs that might benefit from our innovation.
Grow our ability to respond to needs for psycho-physical wellbeing, safety of fragile persons, peace of mind of family members, and efficient professional services through cutting-edge technology and personalized care
