Advanced Bluetooth Technology Gives Patients Freedom While Caregivers Keep A Watchful Eye From Their Smartphone
Today, Bluvision (www.Bluvision.com) announces its integration with GTX Corp., a pioneer and global provider of personal location wearable technologies, in developing a smart solution to track patients with memory cognitive disorders like Alzheimer’s, Dementia and Autism with the BLE SmartSole.
The SmartSole system integrates Bluvision’s BEEK sensor technology with BluFi beacon-reporting to provide caretakers with real-time data via a smartphone application. The application sends location information from BEEKS Bluetooth wireless sensors and can sense when a person has left a set location, such as a room, house or building.
“As a former boxer, battling the progressive stages of dementia, I am very grateful to have the SmartSole working my corner, ensuring me a better quality of life while maintaining my dignity and affording my family the peace of mind that my getting lost is a worry of the past.” Ray Ciancaglini, former professional boxer and award-winning concussion awareness activist.
Features of the SmartSole™ App with BEEKS beacons are:
- Easy Set Up – simply plug the BluFi into any standard power outlet
- Set A Range – Ability to monitor a wearer and set parameters
- Long Battery Life – More than 1 Year with a replaceable battery
- Real-Time Notifications – Users can receive notifications via email or text to multiple caregivers
- Comfortable – ergonomic insoles fit most standard shoes, sizes 5-14
- Water Resistant – Sensors are water resistant to IP-57 Standards
- Anti-Friction – fabric wicks moisture away from the foot
The BLE SmartSoles fit easily into most shoes (as an insert) and let users monitor the indoor whereabouts of loved ones who may have a tendency to leave and wander off, without notice.
The BLE SmartSole and BluFi Cube are currently being piloted in small and medium-sized nursing homes, which typically have a limited number of employees who are responsible for the patients throughout their facilities. By setting up the Cube to cover the entrances and exits, caretakers are being alerted to when their patients enter and leave certain rooms or the facility itself, providing a higher level of security a faster response time in the event a patient wanders off.
Users can be tracked through any smartphone, tablet or web browser, set up text and e-mail alerts if they leave or enter defined areas on a map. To get more information on the SmartSoles you can visit www.gpssmartsole.com
