Why do caregiver NEED this innovation?
The elderly Alzheimer's patient encounters risk of losing all of their memory capability and are unable to live a normal life accordingly. The short memory may let the patient to wander aimlessly and this may lead them to danger. Hence, the Alzheimer's patient needs close care to ensure their safety. Some Alzheimer's patient would be sent by their family to a day care center for day care. The caregivers in day care center have a tough job in monitoring closely the number of Alzheimer's patients at their day care center because of the limited number of caregivers available.
A-RTLS helps to strengthen day care center security, real time monitoring, enhance the caregiver care management quality on Alzheimer patients, alerts caregiver whereabouts of the patient in real time and help medical doctors to analyze resident's spatial movement sequence pattern for determining patient behavior problems of wandering aimlessly.
ARTLS was implemented on several Alzheimer's patients who are residents at the Taman Seputeh Alzheimer's day care center, Kuala Lumpur in early 2011.
