Elderley safety is a top concern for many families in the UK.
YouTrack Halo automatically transmits its position every 2 minutes over the mobile phone network, enabling you to track their location when they’re on the move from any internet enabled PC, tablet or smart phone. The device is also equipped with an SOS Button in case of distress or some form of emergency. They simply press the SOS Button and up to 3 pre-determined numbers will immediately receive an SOS alert via text message and/or email together with their positional location when pressed. You can also establish two way communications to either reassure or determine what action is needed. The unit is small enough to carry in your pocket, a purse or on a belt.
Falls, fall-related injury and fear of falling are important public health problems in an ageing society. Falls and mobility problems are the most common causes of referrals to intermediate care services. Dementia is most common in older people but younger people (under 65) can also get it too. In 2012 800,000 people* (*Alzheimer’s Society Statistics) were thought to have Dementia with the UK (for more statistics and information download this pdf from Alzheimers Society). Most Dementia and Alzheimer’s sufferers that wander are found within a mile and a half of their home. These wanderers are often on foot….someone suffering from Alzheimer’s or Dementia can wander off and become invisible. YouTrack Halo provides an extraordinary degree of protection to the ones we care for knowing exactly where they are and prevent any unnecessary worry or upset.
