Locator for people with Alzheimer's or senile dementia
Mar 02, 2014 Alejandro P1

I think we could use ICTs to produce a locator for people with Alzheimer's or senile dementia. We know this people have spatial disorientation problems, and we could develop a mobile app and a device to control and locate patients and prevent accidents. It would be very useful for patients and their families in urban areas.
The locator device will send us (the family, for example) real time information about position of the patient. And if the patient move longer than a security distance (from home, for example), the mobile app can send us a sms or alert message to prevent problems.
I know that there are already some locator devices developed like these, but I'm not sure if the mobile app exists!!!
