Adam Jahnke

CEO

Umps Health
Enabling living in independence as we age – what should we consider

Bio
Adam Jahnke is the co-founder of Umps Health, which supports people to live safely and independently at home. Umps Health does this using non-intrusive smart plugs that measure patterns in the way people use everyday home appliances, like the TV, kettle, fridge or microwave and raise alerts when behaviour is unusual.

His vision came from his personal experience In 2016 when his grandpa fell at home and was hospitalised. When he came out of hospital, he wanted to stay living in the home he’d been in for more than 60 years, and Adam wanted to support his independence.

Adam looked to technology, but found that he already had the industry standard in incident detection – a pendant worn around the neck. The problem with this is that we only find out about something after it happens, and like most people, even when his grandpa fell he wasn’t wearing it.

So he set out to build something new. Something that worked with his grandpa’s daily habits, was non-intrusive and easy to install and maintain. Adam’s grandpa was the first person to use the technology, who is called Umps, and that’s where the name comes from.
