Lauren

Lauren gets her life back with a Reach At Home Alarm Unit and Fall Detector

Background

At only 20 years old, Lauren has an acquired brain injury and suffers from short term memory loss and hemiplegia. For Lauren’s family - who feared leaving her home alone for any period of time - the Tynetec Reach Home Alarm Unit, Wrist Worn Fall Detector and Smoke Alarm provide a huge amount of re-assurance.

Lauren was knocked down by a car at the age of 11 and spent 6 months in hospital after being left with an acquired brain injury, broken hip, broken right leg and fractured left arm.

Additional Details

Lauren’s recovery is ongoing after she re-learned how to breath, eat, walk and talk. She still struggles with her balance and using the right hand side of her body, but Tynetec products have enabled her to be more independent in her own surroundings with the knowledge that someone is always there if she needs help.

Noreen

Fall Detector keeps Dr Hilary Jones' mother safe and independent

Background

A recent accident threatened a permanent change to the lifestyle of Noreen Jones, an active 90-year-old who loves her home and wants to remain independent there for as long as possible.

Noreen’s son and popular TV doctor, Dr Hilary Jones, insists that Noreen has a Tynetec Reach Home Alarm Unit and Wrist Worn Fall Detector to ensure that if his mother falls again she will be able to raise an alarm and get help quickly.

Additional Details

Noreen stumbled over the end of her bed and had a fall which injured her leg quite badly. Although she was not seriously hurt, she did have to go to hospital and rest while the injury healed.

The risk of a fall and the chance of complications increase with age and at 90, Noreen’s inevitably at greater risk of falling again. Wearing her fall detector every day gives Noreen and her family peace of mind while she goes about her daily business of shopping or gardening.

Brian

Pill Dispenser remembers Brian's medications so he doesn't have to

Background

Brian's 15 year battle with ill-health is managed by medication, which at 56, he was regularly forgetting to take.

As Brian’s wife faced the possibility that she may have to give up work to care for her husband full time, they decided to try the Tynetec Pill Dispenser, Reach Home Alarm Unit and Personal Pendant. The Pill Dispenser now manages Brian’s medication requirements on a daily basis and help is just a click away with his Personal Pendant.

Additional Details

Once pre-loaded with medication, the Pill Dispenser beeps when it’s time for Brian to take his medication and if he misses a dose, the monitoring centre will be alerted to check that he’s not in any danger.

Having Tynetec products to monitor Brian takes a lot of weight of his wife’s shoulders and she can continue to work with the reassurance that he always has help at hand.

Kimberly

Kimberly’s severe condition is safely managed with an Epilepsy Detector

Background

27-year-old Kimberly's parents were using a baby monitor to cope with her diagnosis of learning disabilities and severe epilepsy, until a Tynetec Epilepsy Detector, Reach Home Alarm Unit and Personal Pendant revolutionised their daughters care.

Kimberly’s parents now feel that she is safe enough to be left in the house alone, and they can pop to the shops or go to work with the knowledge she has instant support, should she need it.

Additional Details

Kimberly’s frequent seizures ensure she requires constant care and supervision, which is provided by her Personal Pendant that she can press to get help quickly.

A highly sensitive epilepsy sensor is also placed under Kimberly’s mattress to analyse the frequency of her movement and activate an alarm when it’s appropriate.
