ONUS / the Elderly Product


Considering the trend of increasing population aging in many countries and the increasing proportion of elderly people owning pets, it is meaningful to care for the elderly through pet products. ONUS is a dog walking rope designed for the elderly. It can complete the daily detection of body data, such as heart rate, during the time of the elderly walking the dog. When the elderly hold the ONUS’s grip, the device can complete the detection, and the data will be automatically uploaded to the cloud. The younger generation or the community elderly management center can pay attention to the health of the elderly through the detection of the data.
