Pria by BLACK+DECKER is the first commercial Stanley Healthcare product from BLACK+DECKER that provides innovative solutions and technology for safer, more secure, and more efficient care in the home.

With a mission to empower loved ones who desire to maintain independence while staying connected to their families, Pria by BLACK+DECKER is a HIPAA-compliant platform, voice-enabled tabletop robot that provides caregivers day-to-day insight into their loved one's adherence to both prescribed and over-the-counter medication therapy and wellbeing through a mobile application.

Pria is the ultimate home healthcare tracking and management tool for independent individuals and their caregivers.

"Our goal with Pria is to extend the circle of care within families, allowing multiple individuals to be involved in their loved one's care regimen," said Sean O'Brien, director, Health-at-Home Technologies, Stanley Healthcare. "In addition to checking in on medication dosing, you can schedule reminders for other things, like to drink water, and to video call family, all through an easy-to-use mobile application. We are excited to enter the health-at-home market, and look forward to continuing to deliver on our mission to empower those who are aging in place."
