The technological era is well and truly here. However, despite some progress, the aged-care industry is largely yet to realise the potential that technology can bring to not only facility management but, more importantly, residential care.Read More
For all the horror stores about aged care there are positive developments. There are new models that promote purpose and meaning.Read More
As revolutionary aged care technologies are being trialled and implemented across the nation, innovation and research is once again high on the agenda for many conferences across Australia.Read More
Sensor technology developed by RMIT researchers and Sleeptite might help achieve this. Their new sensor is being developed in response to the lack of sophisticated overnight monitoring technology available on the market.Read More
Sleeptite research partner, Associate Professor Madhu Bhaskaran from RMIT University, has won the prestigious APEC Science Prize for Innovation, Research and Education (ASPIRE).Read More
What if bedding could tell you about a resident’s health? That’s what Australian researchers are exploring as part of a $1.7 million government-funded program.Read More
The team behind new technology that monitors the health wellbeing of aged care residents through a series of non-invasive sensors and alerts staff to potential issues has received a funding boost to further its development.Read More

The Australian Government has thrown its support behind Sleeptite, a Melbourne-based research and advanced manufacturing company, which will revolutionise the Aged Care and Assisted Living Sector through a world first, non-invasive health care monitoring program.
I was never a sciency kid. However, having an engineer as a dad, I was quite strongly pushed into science and math subjects from an early age.
Actually, I wasn’t bad in science or math – I just didn’t enjoy it. Biology experiments were fun, but my whole life I’ve never been good at following recipes (#CantCook). And let’s face it, if none of the above interested me – chemistry was simply a no-go. Eventually it became clear that my dad’s dream of having another engineer in the family was not going to be fulfilled by me.Read More
