Wearable Sensors is designed for use by individuals who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. The Wearable Sensor is a low-cost wearable sensor technology for real-time detection of patient’s wanderings. Once the patient steps onto the floor, a sensor worn on the foot will immediately detect the pressure caused by body weight and wirelessly trigger an audible alert in a caregiver’s Smartphone. There are three technologies integrated into this product: an ultra-thin film sensor that is comfortable to wear, a coin-sized wireless circuit enabled by cutting-edge Bluetooth Low Energy, and apps that transform Smartphones into caregivers’ monitors. This technology is in the process of being testing in nursing homes and investigating patterns from sensor data. In addition to solving the originally intended problem, using the sensor to monitor a larger population of Alzheimer’s patients could lead to a fundamental understanding of the causes of wandering and thus ways to mitigate or prevent it.
SIZES: 0.25mm-thin (one tenth the thickness of the human skin) film sensor.
WARRANTY/GUARANTEE: As stated by the manufacturer.
