DignitE's disability solution provides a range of customisable options depending on your requirements. Fundamentally, these options can be categorised as:
3. supporting activities of daily living
4. data reporting to carers and health care professionals
Let’s take a look at each of these categories.
DignitE’s monitoring options essentially keep an eye on the person in care when you can’t. With a range of solutions, you can be apprised of the location of the person in care should they require help or DignitE senses a potential problem. For example a Help alert with GPS coordinates can be triggered when a fall is sensed and there is no response from the person who fell. A person can also trigger their own Help alert if they feel anxious or scared.
DignitE is designed to keep carers informed. When a help request is manually or automatically triggered, the system sends through an SMS and email notification to carers, inclusive of GPS coordinates.
The DignitE watch acts as a mobile phone, providing a means for carers to contact the wearer of the watch.
DignitE’s solution removes the ability for unwanted calls with only registered carers able to phone the wearer.
Supporting Activites of Daily Living
DignitE's reminders solution supports the performance of daily activities. Carers can program reminders to appear on the watch. Those reminders can be in the form of a request to take medication, advising of activities to be performed, to attend appointments or to reinforce memory.
Reminders are set using terminology particular to your circumstances. For example, if you talk about medication with visual references you could program the reminder as “Take 2 orange pills” or if you talk about medication using medication names you could program the reminder as “Take 2 ibuprofen pills”. The system is flexible enough to be programmed to suit the way you interact with the person in your care.
DignitE can also be used to track adherence to medication schedules, track medication balances and provide reorder reminders to carers.
Memory deterioration can result from certain brain and degenerative conditions so reminders can be used to reinforce memory. Examples include reminding someone of their children’s names, their address, to eat and drink, or messages of positive reinforcement. With DignitE, what you choose to remind the wearer about is up to you.
The data captured by DignitE can be made available to carers, and medical and allied health practitioners for use in objectively assessing a person’s progress, identifying areas for improvement or identifying successes, building strategies to improve quality of life or even in providing data for use in sourcing funding for additional care.
Your DignitE Lifestyle
DignitE is designed to be an integral and unobtrusive part of the care recipient's lifestyle. The DignitE service is centred around a watch (who we call PAT). PAT has a modern, mainstream design and is available in a range of colours.
DignitE is designed for you
PAT is compact and comfortable to wear and is designed for people with visual, hearing and dexterity issues.
Check out the video to the right which shows how easy PAT is to charge for people with decreased dexterity.
Customise, don't compromise
One size does not fit all. So why accept a solution that doesn't take into account your circumstances and the way you want to live.
