“senior ready” technology for living facilities and their employees.
Established in 2007, TECHNOSENS has gone from an innovator to the leader in the development of “senior ready” digital technology.
In 2018 TECHNOSENS joined Groupe VYV, the leading mutual benefit company in France that aims to meet the needs of its customers by developing solutions that improve life centered around its four main activities: insurance, support services, healthcare services and housing.
At TECHNOSENS we have a science and ethics committee that provides guidance and support to our teams, leaders and partners in line with our values of innovation, trust and respect.
One vision, one mission, one role
Thierry Chevalier, the founder of TECHNOSENS, draws his inspiration from his childhood and family. His great-grandfather, the inventor of the briar pipe from Val in Cogolin, bestowed him with his entrepreneurial DNA. His parents supported him through his engineering and business school training, enabling him to start his career at a major international group.
But it was seeing his grandfather suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, isolated because of where he lived, and with communication difficulties that he became determined to start an “aging well/better” business.
That is how TECHNOSENS was born. With one vision: digital can be another kind of medication, beyond the chemical. With one mission: to develop “senior ready” technologies. With one role: to create a global offering for elderly people, their families, caregivers and administrators at assisted living facilities, nursing homes and retirement communities.
Alongside his supporters, partners and stockholders, Thierry Chevalier’s aim is to bring TECHNOSENS into the international market over the next decade.
