Mitra Innovation is a UK and Sri Lankan based company (with an additional office in Australia) specializing in SaaS technology platform incubation, digital transformation and Cloud-to-Cloud integration. Over the last year, they have been helping a Northern Ireland based company – Kraydel – to build their innovative new healthcare technology platform and launch it onto the market. Early March was a milestone in Kraydel's history – and an exciting time for Mitra Innovation – when the service was launched to potential buyers at DigiHealth UK, in London.

The cost of care for the elderly is a major problem at local and national levels in the UK. At present, over 2 million people over the age of 75 live alone, and this number will double every 30 years. Unlike the culture in Sri Lanka, many elderly people live alone by choice as they wish to remain in their own homes in their old age, rather than be moved to care homes or live with their families. But these elderly people are vulnerable to falls, strokes, fevers, heart attacks, cold and hot weather, dementia and forgetfulness and many experience loneliness and isolation. The families often wonder how they can help their elderly relatives retain their independence and remain in their homes, while stasying safe and well at the same time. Kraydel.com provides the answer.

Kraydel is an innovative new assisted living service that enables elderly people to live independently in their own homes.

Using a smartphone app, a customized remote control, and a base station, Kraydel provides people with peace of mind that their elderly relatives are safe and well, by letting them know about their daily activity, the ambient temperature in their homes, whether they have taken their medication, and if they have a medical issue or emergency. The service also provides elderly people with peace of mind that help is just a click away, if they get into any mobility or medical difficulties.

Mitra Innovation helped Kraydel develop the cloud-based technology behind the business, and programme the platform. The DigiHealth UK event was designed to encourage and advance the best practices in digital healthcare innovation, as well as promoting the very latest opportunities in the health and social care sector. Event participants gained access to key information and knowledge necessary to take advantage of new tools, technologies and platforms. The conference also explored how to deliver substantial benefits to both patients and professionals alike.

Mitra Innovation were happy to help the Kraydel team showcase and demonstrate the new Kraydel platform to potential buyers at the event.

Mitra Innovation MD Dammika Ganegama said, "We have been privileged to be a part of the technological build of Kraydel. It is an amazing new service that takes advantage of Cloud-to-Cloud integration technologies and the Internet of Things, and it fills a gap that enables elderly people to retain independence in their old age, and families to know that they're safe and well. We have enjoyed assisting Kraydel on this project and we were delighted to help them launch it at DigiHealth UK." Kraydel CTO Paul Moorhead said, "The team at Mitra Innovation helped us develop a world-class Cloud-based platform. Launching the service at DigiHealth was a great experience."
