Tridium Inc.'s Niagara Framework was selected by N2Care as the software platform for driving the new MEDCottage, a mobile medical home for family managed care. The MEDCottage is a first-of-its-kind, stand-alone residence equipped with biometric technology and environmental controls that allow families and health-care providers to monitor the condition of an aging or disabled relative.

The unit is intended to provide the comforts and security of a home setting, proximity to loved ones, and access to extensive medical technology. The unit contains air-filtration systems, communications center video links, and devices that allow the remote monitoring of vital signs and sensors that could detect an occupant's fall. It also provides entertainment options such as music, reading materials, and movies. Niagara will assist in bringing the multiple systems and devices together into one an integrated solution that can be managed on-site or remotely.

Scott Muench, senior applications engineer at Tridium, said the framework will enable all the cottage devices to come together and display on a webpage for the remote caregiver. "For the loved one living in the cottage, all the systems work together to provide a safe, comfortable and healthy environment – automatically," he said.
