It takes a lot of time and energy to search for and download music for your workout. What you typically listen to throughout the day may not be what keeps you moving at the gym. Other streaming music apps give you one song at a time and have no control over BPMs (beats per minute) – Pandora, for example, will give you a fast, upbeat song but it will be followed by a slow, drawn out song that in no way matches the rhythm of the song you just previously heard. Spotify is just like iTunes, it lets you decide what you want to hear. However, flipping through songs can be very distracting when you’re trying to reach your goal of a seven-minute mile.
In this video, beta customers try out the Lively System, a new Startup that offers the ability to monitor the well-being of elderly relatives through the use of sensors placed in the home.
Instead of always telling your family that you’re fine, Lively lets you show them. It’s an activity sharing experience. Not ‘big brother’ monitoring. You’re in control of how you want to stay independent and connected. And sharing your activity lets your family notice the first signs of any change in your normal routine that makes you and them feel safer.

In this video, the MediSafe Project is described as a system targeted to help you and your family take your medication on time and safely.
MediSafe Project’s co-founding brothers started the company when their diabetic father double-dosed on insulin and suffered an emergency. They understood if they were more involved in reviewing their father’s daily medication and insulin regimens, it could change his behavior for the better and help him get healthier. MediSafe Project reduces hospitalization and mortality, and increases medication compliance and health. It allows families, friends and caretakers to have peace of mind their loved ones are taking medications on time, even when they can’t be there.
