Care Predict Company will reveal the world’s first watch-like device that indicates possible serious issues in the elderly at the Consumer Electronic Show from Jan. 7-10 in Las Vegas, Nev. It observes changes in daily activity and behavior patterns, as well as indicate issues like falls, malnutrition, depression and even urinary tract infections.
Research has shown the first signs of health declines in seniors occur as changes in daily activities. The only way to catch these changes has been through human observation and detection of subtle shifts in patterns, which is impossible even for the most experienced caregiver.
Care Predict’s Tempo device is the only wearable available on the market today that autonomously observes the activities of daily living, such as eating, cooking, walking, sleeping, bathing and bathroom patterns in seniors. The system uses machine learning and artificial intelligence to learn the “normal” activity pattern of the wearer and alerts family and friends when there is a deviation in the personalized pattern.
Families can understand when their senior loved one is skipping meals, not sleeping well and not as active as usual or if things are different. The Care Predict Tempo Series 3 will be available from CarePredict.com at a cost of $499.99 with a $69.99 monthly service fee.
