Kindly brief us about your organization and its inception story.

The idea for a monitoring product first came about when I was seeking a smartwatch to help my late father, Kazem, to monitor his hypertension. But this past year, as I followed news of the horrors that COVID-19 was causing in Montreal seniors’ homes, I couldn’t help but think of my father. I wanted to find a way to offer peace of mind to the caregivers and patients.
