who we are

Home Health Systems, a division of RoweBots Limited, was started in direct response to critical factors in Ontario, Canada.

we do it right

The challenge of travel for older patients to get treatment in winter or even in the summer was noted by 1980 with potential electronic solutions impractical at that time. As early as 1995, burgeoning healthcare costs threatened the level of care and dominated the spending of the province of Ontario, and by then the technology was available. Studies showed that using home care as opposed to hospital care could reduce the costs of care by approximately 10X while improving quality of life for patients; however, the industry was not ready for this.

In 2007, RoweBots started experimenting with the use of accelerometers to detect concussions in order to prevent further concussions and to do fall detection and gait analysis.  By 2010, RoweBots embarked on a long term program to bring chronic patients and older patients health care in their home over the internet. Initial developments  of sensors were put on hold as efforts were focused on wireless gateways with the ability to serve a variety of different devices from various vendors. The gateways were developed but a clear market was not available.

With a broad protocol wireless gateway available, extensive intellectual property in the microcontroller software, the Unison RTOS, OEM product development skills and sensor processing experience, it was clear that RoweBots could quickly deliver OEM products in the home health care market.   Home Health Systems was born to address the needs for home health care.

Charles and Virginia Barnard were concerned about winter travel for physician appointments in 1982

what we offer



Due to publicity around the death of Rowan Stringer in 2013 (a young woman from an Ottawa high school that the founders son attended) research into concussion sensors was reactiviated and further research was started.  With the legislature passing Rowan’s Law in 2016, and concussions in the news daily, RoweBots developed their first concussion monitoring system – R2CMS. Using the wireless gateway technology, RoweBots demonstrated a solution with a model for identifying and monitoring athletes with concussion symptoms. Home Healthcare Systems was created, in part, to commercialize this technology expanded with additional sensors to monitor all vital signs in addition to head impacts.  This initial product is called SPORTsSAFER.

SafetyPatch Origins

With a broad protocol wireless gateway available, and reusing components from SPORTsSAFER, the opportunity to address chronic health care conditions was created and SafetyPatch was born.
