KIT Wristband – Keep In Touch (Now Available)

For vulnerable adults, their carers and care professionals, who believe in enabling freedom and independence, KIT is the wrist worn unique and intelligent location and communications device that gives peace of mind.

KIT wristband is a mobile phone and assisted GPS tracker miniaturized into a simple wearable device worn on the wrist. KIT is designed for vulnerable people who are capable of and want to maintain an independent living experience.

The beauty of KIT is its simplicity. By simply pressing the button KIT will call one of a nominated number of carers (up to 16) whose phone numbers are pre programmed into KIT. The carer can also call KIT by simply dialing the mobile number associated with it.

In addition carers can, through any internet enabled device locate the whereabouts of the wearer using the b.con GPS platform which supports KIT. b.con features include geo fencing, battery monitor and alerting systems which notify carers when a loved one has left a “safe zone”.

While KIT cannot guarantee the absolute safety of a vulnerable loved one its dual functionality of allowing voice communication and the ability to approximately locate a loved ones whereabouts does provide a high level of peace of mind for carers who want to maintain the independent living experience of their loved one for as long as their loved one so desires.

b.con – Connected healthcare platform

b.con is a secure, private, interoperable and scalable platform built on the principals of privacy by design. The platform addresses the issues of ownership and access to personal healthcare and wellness data. It enables the development of total healthcare informatics solutions, which can be developed and operated on the b.con SDK and core.

Current Problem

Personal wellness data as typically generated by mobile phones, wearable devices and wellness devices is significant and valuable.  It can be used to better diagnose and manage medical conditions. Currently these solutions operate as “walled gardens in that control and ownership of the data generated in the main is retained by the manufacturer. Currently there is no standard solution which enables the pooling and sharing of this data to enable data analytics to be performed with regard to specific medical conditions. In addition accessing personal healthcare records or sharing pooled wellness data with the healthcare system is in itself a challenge and the healthcare system is also a “ walled garden”.

Privacy By Design

Built on the principals of privacy by design, b.con is designed to promote interoperability and encourage the open exchange of features to provide an ecosystem for innovation which is ideally suited to the concept of an “Internet of Things” (IoT) interfacing with sensors, devices and applications that create of utilise information. KMS is bringing b.con to market as the IoT solution for the Connected Health Market. At the core of the b.con proposition is privacy and the platform has been developed to ensure that the ownership and control of data generated remains with the creator of the data.

b.con Solution

For innovators in connected healthcare, the requirement for a data platform is as fundamental as the requirement for a hosting service. Many innovators develop bespoke platforms that are unique to their service or device (a walled garden) at a significant cost and often without the appropriate regard to privacy by design. The platform provides an already existing solution to these challenges as well as significantly reducing the overall development costs in bringing an innovation to market.

Central to b.con’s core proposition is that the creator of any data feed to the platform retains ownership of that data (i.e the end user of the device or service). Being an interoperable system, the end user can choose to share his/her information with any number of parties. This has significant benefit and impact for health infomatics in general. The device or service provider retains access to the data for the specific purpose which the device or service required it in the first place.

My Trav – Independent Travel App

Developed with Newcastle City Council, KMS has developed an Android App “MyTrav” which is currently in Beta Testing. MyTrav is designed to enable children with Special Education Needs (SEN) to undertake independent travel.

MyTrav enables a travel trainer to create any journey to be undertaken by the user and store this journey on the app. Journeys consist of a start and end point with a series of landmarks in between. As the user starts the journey they are presented with a prompt, which is generally in the form of a photo of the landmark accompanied with either a recorded voice or text instruction as to what to do next.

As the user approaches the next landmark and they reach a pre-defined and configurable radius form the landmark the next prompt will appear.

If the user goes off journey they will receive an alert and will be asked if they require help and are offered a range of options from triggering an emergency alert to phoning one of a number of contacts or sending a text message.

The anticipated time to travel between landmarks is also a configurable value in MyTrav and if a user is beyond this time MyTrav will trigger an alert.

The user can see their progress through the journey and can look at is as a linear series of landmarks or on a map view. When a journey is completed the user receives a message congratulating them on completing the journey.

Carers for the user can access the secure b.con platform, which enables them to monitor the progress of the user. When a user, goes off route, fails to arrive or is beyond the allotted time to travel between two landmarks the carer will receive either a text or email alert.

In October 2015 MyTrav won “Project of the Year – Public Sector in the Dynamites 15 Awards which are the Technology and Telecoms awards for the North East of England.
