About the solution

Olivier Dez, 57 years old, was captivated very early by new technologies. When he was diagnosed with Alzheimer in 2015 he decided to create an application for people with neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer, Parkinson, multiple sclerosis ...) with the help of the company DCO Media+, specialised in this field.

The app, called Zenaïde, was created to help patients and caregivers in the management of these diseases, difficult to treat today.

It is intended primarily to treat emergencies (crisis, paralysis, etc.) anywhere un the world provided with an Internet or telephone network. It also manages medical appointments and treatments.

External services (forum, dedicated line, web radio, etc.) will reduce the loneliness of the patient and his caregivers in the face of disabilities.

The application, sold as a monthly subscription, is translated into three languages : French, English, Spanish and is accessible from a smartphone, a touch pad or a connected watch.
