Multifunctional alarm button
The Care Watch is a multifunctional alarm button that looks like a watch. In case of emergency it builds up a live speech connection with a professional aid worker. Beside the alarm function, the watch shows time and date, and can be programmed with medicine alerts or other reminders.
The watch measures temperature, heartbeat and is equipped with drop down detection. The watch has very low current consumption, is water proof and skin friendly. You can therefore wear it continuously, even in the shower. Care Watch is the smart watch for the independent and self sufficient senior!
More than a watch,
a full service concept
Care Watch is 24/7 remotely connected to a professional aid worker. In case of emergency , Care Watch builds up a live speech connection, directly from the watch.
Care Watch can be used in multiple settings. At home, outside, in a multi user setting, even as a professional nurse call and patient monitoring system.
A safe and liveable countryside,
also for elderly
Populations in rural areas are ageing and shrinking. We ourselves are located on the countryside. From our headquarters in the Northern part of The Netherlands, we literally see the change. In order to keep villages and small communities safe and liveable, something needs to happen. We are convinced that the Care Watch concept can help a little to accomplish that.
Work in progress
Beginning 2014 we announced the development of Care Watch. Our press release was widely picked up. News papers gave attention to it, we were quoted on news sites and interviewd on the radio. We were even invited for a TED Talk by the Dutch Embassy in Dublin. A lot has happened since then...
You can already pre-register for your own Care Watch! As soon as Care Watch gets available, you will be the first to be noticed.
