Keeping people safe even outside of the home
Location tracking via GPS has become a common element of new technology and Tynetec believe that the benefits of this feature in mobile phones and fitness watches can be applied to Technology Enabled Care services.
Although Technology Enabled Care services have traditionally been implemented inside someone’s home, there’s now nothing to stop us from expanding these services once someone opens their front door and steps out into the community.
A variety of devices have been developed to support such scenarios and through expert assessment, we are now able to offer indivuals the ability to roam freely in the community without being more than a quick call away from help and support should they need it.
For an individual that requires an automated support mechanism, a GPS device can be set up with geographical fences that provide “safe zones”. If an individual should step outside of their “safe zone”, a carer can be alerted and appropriate action can then be taken.
GPS location tracking services could allow an individual to maintain their independence outside of their home.
The GT300 is a versatile device for higher functioning users, such as younger people with learning difficulties, people with acquired brain injury or older people who are worried about falling or getting lost where the simple mobile function might be useful.
