Particularly useful for alzheimer patients. The system can be configured so that if a patient walks outside a defined perimeter of a facility, an alarm will sound for security or administrative staff.
Patients often exhibit unusual behaviours prior to a medical event. Behaviours such as lack of appetite through to varying toilet patterns can be precursors to medical conditions. Systems now exist that establish a typical behaviour pattern for patients and in the event that these patterns move outside predetermined behaviours medical staff can be alerted to potential risks.
