Our journey
A Vision of Care

Feargal Duignan, Founder of PacSana, embarked on a mission inspired by a personal experience.
Observing subtle changes in his aging parents’ lives, he realized the significance of proactive care.

‘About 6 years ago, I arrived at my parents’ house to find my father away for the day and my mother on the hall floor.  Thankfully, I got there shortly after the fall and was able to get her fixed up.

A few days of rest and she was back on her feet. 

She recovered from the physical injury within weeks, but it was months before the fear of being alone and needing help passed. 

As a technology sales guy, I had to ask how we could have used technology to prevent this. 

I did a deep dive into this problem area, and I was disappointed with what was available. 

There was nothing proactive.

Nothing preventative

and nothing that was effective in supporting older adults age well where they wanted to be.

This challenge is what inspired us to create Pacsana.’

Feargal Duignan

CEO, PacSana

PacSana has been developed to improve outcomes for older adults. We develop innovative but practical solutions that protects loved ones whilst respecting their right to choose.

We’ve built our mission around these core principles:

Proactive, Not Reactive:

We believe that identifying issues early and prompting interventions before emergencies happen is key to improving outcomes for older adults. Waiting until after a fall is simply too late.

Needs-Based Care:

Many adults need help with Activities of Daily Living such as dressing and washing. Many, however, do not. The legacy approach of allocating fixed care hours indefinitely without regular adjustment is no longer fit for purpose in a world where carers are in limited supply.

You Care, We Monitor:

We trust in the power of AI to collect and analyze data more effectively than humans. It’s the foundation of our early warning system, alerting us to changes and enabling targeted interventions, allowing caregivers to focus on the human side of care.

User Centric Design:

Our solutions are designed with the older adult in mind. We prioritize elegant and low-maintenance designs, like the PacSana Smart Bracelet, to ensure 24/7 wearability while maintaining dignity and acceptance.
