Medical Alert for Senior Citizens
Leaving your home to move into a nursing home can be the most stressful event in an elderly person’s life. Technological advancement can postpone or prevent this move and help a person live in the comfort of their own home. With the recent changes to aged care funding the financial advantage of living in your own home far outweigh the cost of services and aids.
The Ability to Contact Family
The ability to contact family or 000 in the event of an emergency is paramount to independent living. Safety and communication are crucial to independent living. SOS watch has resolved this setback by devising a Medical Alert for senior citizens.
Currently our system of medical alert for senior citizens, mainly comprise of pendants which are limited by their range. Most pendants can be activated within the confines of your own home and require a landline to function. A text message is sent upon activation of the pendant leading to an uncertain wait for assistance. Shopping, recreational activities and family visits which require leaving your home are not covered by such pendants and expose the limitations of this system.
The SOS Watch is Uniquely Global
The SOS Watch is uniquely global, and it integrates a 3G sim card within a smartwatch. It can activate a medical alert for senior citizens in the event of an emergency from anywhere in the country. Upon activation it places a call to either your family or 000. You can speak to the person and describe your concerns. Help can be organised immediately.
You Do Not Require A Separate Landline or Mobile Phone
The SOS Watch also provides you with a unique mobile phone number. Your friends and family can contact you on this number and enquire your condition. You do not require a separate landline or mobile phone to keep in touch.
