Mobile phone that keeps track of the elderly
A company in Sweden has developed a mobile phone that tracks the movements of elderly relatives. It comes with extra-large and brighter buttons.
The phone will help create safe zones for older relatives who are using a mobile phone. If the elderly person steps outside the area then the phone sends an alarm to family members.
The phone sends out an emergency signal if relatives do not immediately respond. The technology has been developed by Doro, a company which makes mobile phones for people over 65 years and sells them in the UK. They aim to help elderly and people with disabilities stay in their own homes safely.
The phones also have a panic button on the back which will send out the location of the wearer to five people.
