SALJOL Ideas for better living
SALJOL, founded in February 2016, occupies a special niche of the market for medical and nursing aids. We have realised that mature and ageing societies face a big challenge on how to make it possible for old people to live at home for as long as possible.
Several AAL solutions and thousands of smart home ideas already exist and will help to observe and support this new and fast growing target group in several countries all over the world.
The fact that ageing societies cost a lot of money has changed the rules in reimbursement and social care. Prices per person need to be lowered while the old norms and regulations are still in place. Consequently, the existing industry for rehab and healthcare products have stopped investing in new and simple solutions to make existing products better fit into the daily life of seniors at home.
SALJOL started with the Vision to change this! We are creating simple, easy but extremely effective no brainer products which do help people every day to stay independent and safe. We make existing ideas better and more available for seniors and their peer groups every day.
We think and act from the perspective of the people using these aids. More and more people are needing such aids and it is a tremendous upheaval in their lives to suddenly be dependent on help and support, especially for a generation that has worked hard in our society. We see the change, recognise the problem and offer well-thought-out solutions.
It is important to us to provide our parents and grandparents with the aid and help that they desperately need and want. Ideas for better nursing aids, for more self-management, more support, more dignity and the maximum possible enjoyment of life.
Saljol is 16 months old and has developed and launched 11 products. All designed to make life better and support self-management amongst the elderly.
Demographic studies clearly indicate that society is ageing. This trend is placing increasing strain on governments all over the world. In Germany alone 2,8 Million people need caring for, 50% live in the own homes, 700 000 are in institutions such as nursing homes and assisted-living residences and 700 000 are taken care of by home-care organisations.
Our products are based on the fact that studies have also shown that there is a strong correlation between physical and mental health, and the frequency of physical activity in self-management. Being mobile and active supports good health and delays the onset of age-related diseases such as dementia. The elderly should be supported and encouraged to remain independent and mobile as long as possible.
Staying mobile, staying healthy, staying independent, saves money and improves the quality of life.
This is the idea behind and the products SALJOL has developed so far and in what will come.
Thomas Appel, the CEO, has 20 years of experience in the market for medical and nursing aids. Our team at Saljol also have their fair share of experience in this market. We work closely in cooperation with universities, medical professionals, institutions such as the “Deutsche Seniorenliga e.V.” and “Sani Aktuell” a group of medical and health care suppliers. This enables us recognise deficiencies in the market, define the problems and make solutions happen that work.
Our solutions help, among other things, to prevent fall related injuries such as hip fractures, as well aid in the rehabilitation after such an accident.
Keep it simple. Improve functionality. Make it easy to understand. Make it safe. Launch it on the market at an affordable price. This is SALJOL’s way of doing things.
