Features of the project [contD…] 1) Phone tracking through GPS: • Since Alzheimer patients have a low memory problem they frequently forget as to where they were heading. This GPS feature will guide them to their destination.
Features of the project [contD…] 2) Pop-up message on banging of phone: • Alzheimer is found mostly in age group above 65. Because of low mental balance and loose neural connections in their brain they have a tendency to fall down very often. Thus there is a probability that when their phone bangs it might be because they have fallen down. This feature will thus give an alert to the caretaker of the patient whenever he/she falls, indicating a risk of damage.
Features of the project [contd…] 3) Mental Exercise : • Alzheimer patients loose the ability of brain to create, remember and relate to others that can leave a negative impact on their personal life. So as a part of their mental exercise we hereby design a feature with which they can relate the names and faces of their near and dear ones.
Features of the project [contd…] 4) Balanced Diet : • Alzheimer patients need to follow a strict diet and tablet routine. So this feature, when feeded in with their lunch time, dinner time, and the tablet routine along with the name and pic of the tablet would give them a timely reminder.
Features of the project [contd…] 5) Routine Manager: • This feature will take as an input of their all “to-do-activities” for the day and will give an alert for the same. • Then what is innovative??? : • When they will reach at a desired destination, automatically, this feature will alert them about the activities to be performed there.
Features of the project [contd…] 6)General reminder : • Since Alzheimer patients have a low memory problem they frequently forget to carry the phone with them, charge the phone, recharge the Internet connection, feed routines etc. This feature would give them a timely reminder.
