Our elderly parents, grandparents or relatives, sometimes, may not be able to enjoy a healthy and peaceful winter of life, but they might rather be suffering from degenerative illnesses, typical of old age, such as Alzheimer’s disease.
We all know how cunning this disease is, and how it strikes not only the patients’ body and nerve system, but also his pride and morale, forcing them to do things they would not normally do, such as unconsciously leaving their home and getting lost, thus having trouble finding their way back.
Fortunately, in cases like these, technology comes to the rescue and supports patients and their caretakers, either family members or professional hospital personnel. Thanks to Trusty Bip, the Alzheimer patient locator, it is possible to follow our loved ones, or the people under our responsibility, and receive an instant alert if they exceed a certain preset distance.
The system is made up of a bracelet with transceiver, which can be placed on the wrist or ankle, and a receiver which can handle up to 40 transceivers (and patients) at the same time. If the Alzheimer patient leaves the place, as soon as he reaches a certain distance the bracelet will send an alert to the receiving station, where its position can be displayed, allowing for immediate action to bring him back to safety.
This tracking system allows both the patient and the caretaker to live this condition easily, without adding further to the stress of a difficult situation. Furthermore, Trusty Bip can be used for other purposes as well, like locating pets or cattle, if you have a large property and can not keep your eyes on all of them at the same time. In short, this is a solution to take care of our loved ones, either with two or four legs!
