The Vega GPS bracelet is a personal location finder and wandering patient system designed for use in residential and institutional settings with people who have autism, Alzheimer's disease, dementia and other cognitive disabilities that may cause wandering. The Vega system is composed of two units - a wireless transmitter and locator worn on the wrist with a lockable security wristband, and a radio frequency base station. The wrist unit uses GPS and GSM positioning to determine the wearer's location and transmits that location to the base station. It is waterproof and features a digital display activated by a button of the time and date as well as indicators of the battery level, connection to global positioning systems, signal strength. The unit also has a microphone and speaker for two-way communication and an emergency button that will contact an emergency response service designated by the user. The base unit can be configured to set a "safe zone" for the user so that both the wrist unit and base unit sound alarms should the user wander beyond that area. A key for the bracelet, a screwdriver and a user manual are also included. POWER: The watch/locator has a rechargeable battery that can recharge in the base unit or cordlessly. The base station uses a standard household outlet using an AC adapter (included). OPTIONS: The Vega system can be integrated with a 5 Diamond Emergency Monitoring Call Center if the user subscribes to that service; subscriptions are available through the distributor. DIMENSIONS (HxWxD): 65 x 46 x 20 millimeters (wrist unit without bracelet). WEIGHT: 57 grams (wrist unit without bracelet).
