I know how you feel: Are you excited to offer your parents or grandparents a tablet or smartphone that will make their lives easier? You have spent many hours setting it up with all the pictures, applications, sounds, contacts and games you know you will love. And in the end they do not like it or can not use it.
We are in the middle of a deadly one pandemic targeting vulnerable people - and therefore the elderly. Too many seniors have lost their lives to COVID-19 so far. Technology, especially portable technology products, telehealth and integrated contact detection, are proving very useful in preventing more deaths. Older people need to know how to make the most of technology. These technologies will help them, so it's time to join life their.
We know how difficult it is for older people to embrace something new (it is often just as difficult for us). Here are some products that are going to be useful to them - or if you are reading the article yourself they are going to help you:
Portable technology products
Just like the Apple Watch or the Fitbit, there are simple mobile devices for the elderly that can be further personalized. Some features that work particularly well with braille-style features help visually impaired people identify which button to press to alert staff, and a blue light flashes as soon as the button is pressed. device. Other devices allow you to unlock a door from a great distance. Still others are designed to alert nurses at the touch of a button.
Telefoods (the concept of providing health care through communication and information technology)
The elderly need medical care and regular monitoring. The most effective and safest way to keep in touch with your doctor at home is through telemedicine. Telehealth is not just a standard video call. Instead, doctors can remotely monitor a patient - e.g. temperature, weight, oxygen level and more. Seniors can add family members to video calls they do with doctors to make sure everyone knows exactly what is going on.
Tracking contacts is probably one of those terms you never heard of before the pandemic COVID-19. Contact detection and the ability to detect a person who has had direct contact with an infected person is vital to eliminating the spread of COVID-19.
However, for nursing communities, contact detection is not new. In any vulnerable community, staff know they must move quickly to eradicate any communicable disease. To address this, contact tracking is the ultimate contact tracking tool, with the ability to track the locations and interactions of patients and staff with unparalleled ease.
