A senior would wear a pendant and be able to stay connected and share moments with caregivers through pictures & recorded messages. The pendant also tracks activity to monitor health and has a help button that works anywhere.
The Amulyte System
Amulyte is designed to allow seniors to keep their freedom and independence, while promoting active living and a way to stay connected and share moments in their day-to-day lives. It also provides peace of mind to family members and caregivers knowing that their elder loved one is safe and healthy.
The Amulyte Pendant contains a speaker, microphone and camera allowing seniors to capture "moments" in their everyday life, and automatically shares these moments with their caregivers. It
is also able to track activity, detect location, and contains an easy to use help button that works anywhere; instantly connecting seniors to their family members and caregivers in the event of an emergency.
Moments are automatically shared with family members and caregivers through a daily email digest.
The Amulyte Portal allows caregivers to stay informed and up to date about their loved one. It would display information such as activity level, location, and device information. Amulyte "moments" would also be displayed here.
How It Works
A senior would wear the pendant as part of their everyday outfit. It would be designed to be either a necklace, a clip, or fit on a wrist strap. All three accessories could come with the pendant so that a senior could change how they want to wear it each day.
The Pendant would contain a speaker, microphone and camera to capture moments, as well as an accelerometer, GPS, WiFi, GSM technology allowing it to connect to a cell network, and an easily rechargeable battery using inductive charging (just place it on a charging matt).
If help is ever needed, a senior would simply press the button and their caregivers would automatically be alerted via text message, phone call, or online notification.
Fits a Senior's Independent Life
As seniors age one thing remains the same, their desire to live as independently as possible. Whether this means continuing to live in their own homes, or moving into a retirement community; seniors want to be able to live their life on their own terms. The Amulyte System allows them to do this, while providing easy access to help in the event of an emergency. Seniors can continue to enjoy their independence and freedom while knowing that help is always available.
Gives Peace of Mind to Family Members and Caregivers
As a loved one ages, their health and safety becomes a common concern. It is important to make sure they are staying active and able to get help in the event of an emergency. That’s where Amulyte can help - get daily notifications letting you know that your loved one is doing well, log in to the portal to check activity levels, and get automatic alerts if your help is needed.
I'd love to hear your thoughts/feedback on what you like/don't like about this idea! We are in the process of building it right now, and it would be great to incorporate some suggestions from this community into the product :)
Is there something you think could be done better?
Is there a feature we should add?
How should we position it so that seniors will like it as well as caregivers?
