Fondazione Social Venture Giordano Dell’Amore


WiMonitor started up in Rovereto in 2017, the brainchild of Agostino Losardo and Ferdinando Grossi, two young engineers who met in Parma during their research doctorate in Information Engineering, and who have since been engaged in a variety of work on European projects. The start-up has developed WiMBeds and WiMHome, two highly innovative systems for monitoring domestic spaces and care facilities which are able to support assistance services for elderly and vulnerable people through the use of non-invasive wireless sensors that provide information on behavior via App and Web, without having a negative impact on people’s lives. WiMHome sends a warning to relatives or caregivers of the assisted person in case of emergency situations (such as the danger of fire, flooding, potential falls or the person leaving their home). WiMBeds enables the monitoring of beds within a care facility, through the transmission of alerts to telephones and pagers, enables the complete personalization of alarms that signal when people leave (their beds) and do not return, through a simple web interface.

WiMonitor can count on the support of Fondazione Social Venture Giordano Dell’Amore, which invested €72,500 in equity in the start-up following the acceleration of Como Next that was offered as part of their participation in Get it! and the mentorship path they undertook with Luigi Parlangeli.


WiMonitor was created to enable people who require assistance, such as the elderly, to continue living in their own homes, offering peace of mind to both older people and their caregivers and avoiding the premature move to nursing or care-home facilities, with a consequent reduction in expenditure for families and for the state. This is a growing need that is more important than ever today in light of the health crisis triggered by the spread of Covid-19 and the new socio-demographic trends that highlight the urgent need to redesign services around self-sufficient elderly people, considering that: 900,000 elderly people in Italy need at-home assistance, 780,000 of whom need both social and health assistance, 130,000 need social assistance and, in Lombardy alone, there are 408,000 homes where elderly people are living (about 35% of them alone) in oversized houses (205,000 units) that have poor accessibility.
