Kit – Keep in touch
KIT wristband is a mobile phone and 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. It also provides peace of mind for their carers.
The beauty of KIT is its simplicity. There is only one button on the device, no screens, no multi button applications, no keypad. By simply pressing the button KIT will call one of a nominated number of carers (up to five) 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.
