Carers / Wearable technology


Elderly people often can't get instant service when they face unexpected situations in public area.
With CARERS, the vulnerable can press the digital badge to transfer the information of their position to mobile devices by Bluetooth. The official staffs can find the users via the APP immediately and give them instant assistance.
This Universal Designed system is created specific for the issues of socially vulnerable. It can not only solve the current situation, but also achieve the application of smart technology networking.
