Tracking Systems And Devices For Elderly People
GPS Tracking Systems and Devices
This are very small devices that are usually worn round the elderly person's neck, wrist or ankle. They send out a signal and this means you can track their movements online. For example, if an old person, who is still capable of driving, wants to drive somewhere, you can track their progress and even receive notification when they arrive at their indented destination.
Elderly people who wander
Another use of these tracking systems is if an elderly person is prone to wandering. If a person goes missing you can instantly locate them by looking online.
GPS tracking devices are also useful for finding people quickly if they need to take medication.
Indoor Alarm Systems
Another form of tracing system is an Indoor Alarm System. These devices send out alerts if doors leading to the outside or to basements or attics have been opened. They can also be installed on windows, so you can be alerted if a window has been opened.
These type of wander management systems are made up of sensors placed around the home that report back to a main computer panel. The benefit of these devices is that they track the an old person's movements to make sure that they are not wandering outside.
