A big social issue exists around wearable safety hardware in the care related markets. (not just aged care. e.g. young care, DV, MS, Parkinson’s) There seems to be limited choice, lacking portability and definitely lacking discretion in the wearable safety market - and that leads to risks due to their resistance to wear emergency response pendants or wrist bands.
Thats why we created RightMinder®.
RightMinder®’s objective is to ensure that people live a quality life regardless of their age, physical or psychological state with discretion and the freedom of choice in selecting wearable hardware.
RightMinder® allows smartwatches to function as a Fall Detection device; but arguably the primary use will be in situations where those who are ‘self-aware' can easily sit-down and send an emergency alert (rather than search for an unreachable phone) to their Carer network if they feel a 'turn coming on' (i.e. 'uneasy' or 'woozy.’) Their smartwatch basically acts as an easily accessible panic button to their securely connected carers. As for the not-so-self-aware scenarios, we want to explore concepts of injectable implants to identify such risks and alert wearers and carers before a fall occurs.
Many elderly reject the notion of wearing obtrusive red buttons around their neck or wrist and this could represent a potential risk to themselves and worry from their loved ones. RightMinder® has been specifically designed, when paired with an Android smartwatch, to help those who require care live a dignified, respected, and independent life. (Apple coming soon)
We are extremely encouraged by the acceptance of smartwatch technology amongst our focus groups. RightMinder® has proven to be very easy to use and manage, despite the underlying complexity of the algorithms utilised.
RightMinder® also extends to people living with disabilities such as MS, dementia, brain trauma, epilepsy and for other high need individuals.
RightMinder® helps reduce the level of dependence on professional operators and on tax funded government assistance.
RightMinder® is about Peace of Mind without Being Front of Mind.
