Spanish brand Keruve has come out with a GPS device designed to keep an eye out for Alzheimer‘s patients.
The system consists of a special bracelet and a PSP like handheld device that can show the location of the person wearing the bracelet. Speaking of the bracelet; it is water resistant and it can only be taken off using a special tool.
The bracelet GPS receiver works with GSM1800 and GSM900 networks to broadcast its location to the base unit and even has an alarm that goes off when the battery level is too low – which is expected to last about 3.5 days.
Keruve also utilizes triangulation to make sure you can still find out where your elderly relative is even they’re indoors where GPS signals can’t reach.
