About Mentech

Due to labor shortages and a more complex care demand, data-driven work becomes necessary in the transition to future-proof care for people with intellectual disabilities or dementia. For this purpose, Mentech develops solutions such as the HUME or the emotion-intelligent robot. The HUME is an advanced sensor system that can measure tension build-up based on data from wearables (such as a sock) and AI algorithms. Early detection of tension build-up and insight into the causes of stress allows the caregiver to act more effectively and thus prevent escalations. The emotion-intelligent robot performs person-centered interventions based on stress recognition to alleviate the care demand.


This provides long-term care with tools to improve the quality of life of people with intellectual disabilities or dementia and reduce the pressure on care.
