About SmalTec

Our idea started as a solution for the big societal challenge of the aging population and to slow down the associated progressivity of dementia in Europe. In particular, movements at the feet level give an indication of the stage of dementia and thus interventions can be verified. Accurate data on feet movements are crucial for a good diagnosis and motion therapy itself slows down the aggressive progress of this disease.

We are developing a revolutionary Smart Floor system that delivers accurate personalized movement information in interaction with a small wearable sensor. It is based upon a well-known (RF-) technology, that we use in a spectacular new way. The uniqueness is that we physically add a simple passive, cheap, life time lasting, powerless and maintenance free RF sensor-membrane that can be integrated invisibly in existing floorings.
