A collective desire to make a difference through technology.

Anthropos was born with a single goal in mind: help older people to stay well, independent and happy in their own homes for longer,

Anthropos was formed by two companies with a wealth of experience in delivering large technology programmes in the NHS, security and defence.

Our management team has already been very successful in creating smart platforms over the last seven years: including managing the design, development and implementation of the ‘Hive’ connected home offering by British Gas, now installed in over 660,000 homes in the UK and the USA.

The platform was five years in the making, with early versions of the platform already implemented in healthcare, social care, probation services, research, call centres and clinics in the UK and Scandinavia.

Knowing the potential of a Connected Care Platform, our teams set to identify how to use unobtrusive sensors to gather data about changes in patterns of behaviour that would enable better insights into the lives of older people living alone, leading in turn to better care plans and the delivery of pre-emptive care.
