Family Guard / Design for elderly people

Family Guard
Family Guard

Aging and old people living separately with their adult children have become a dual challenge for urban Chinas old age care. Older people who live alone have to face many challenges including physical and mental problems. When the old people tripped and fell at home accidentally, when the old people suffer a heart attack, no one accompany them. How to solve this problem? So we design an product called Family Guard that could check up the elderly's physical fitness and emotional statement by GPRS transmitting abnormal signal and GPS realtime positioning to achieve monitoring integration for the elderly.
