What We Do
OK2StandUP is the first AI-powered fall prevention solution developed for seniors and their caregivers. For decades, falls have been accepted as an unavoidable part of aging. We can do better than that and our seniors deserve better.
Helping older adults age gracefully and professionals work more efficiently was not what I had envisioned during my doctoral studies in mechanical engineering. It all began several years ago with a simple engineering question to solve a complex health problem: “Can falls among older adults be prevented with a sensor?” We spun out of the University of Pittsburgh to answer this question. We at OK2StandUP, INC have been thinking, researching, and developing a solution to address this problem. The answer is a firm "Yes!”. Our company is proud to offer OK2StandUP, a solution that works for older adults, their families, and care organizations.
