Dementia monitoring system – wandering protection for dementia patients

As a family member or caregiver, it is crucial to ensure the safety of dementia and Alzheimer’s patients in advance. On our website, we offer a selection of emergency call watches and mobile home emergency call systems that are specially tailored to the needs of this patient group.

Many dementia patients lose their bearings and may no longer be able to find their way home or to acquaintances and friends on their own. Our specially developed emergency call bracelets offer valuable support here.

Our emergency call bracelets at a glance

Emergency watch with base station: Ideal for indoor tracking, this watch is easy to use and is simply plugged into the socket. It enables precise indoor positioning by serving as a fixed point for the set radius. This is particularly useful indoors where GPS signals can be weak.
Emergency bracelet without base station: This bracelet is intended for general applications where no specific indoor location is required. Without a base station, the wristband attempts to receive a constant GPS signal, which can affect battery life. For dementia patients, we recommend the version with a base station to facilitate orientation and extend the battery life.
Using a base station with our emergency call bracelets expands the possibilities of monitoring by enabling reliable indoor location and extending battery life. This makes it an ideal solution for monitoring dementia patients indoors.

Emergency call watch with GPS system without base station

Alarmbands also offers an emergency call watch with an integrated GPS system that does not require the use of a base station. This model enables general monitoring of a larger area without relying on constant positioning via a base station.

Advantages and disadvantages of the GPS emergency watch
Advantage: No base station required – This simplifies the installation and handling of the clock, as no additional hardware needs to be set up.
Disadvantage: No precise indoor location possible – Without a base station, the watch cannot provide precise location information inside buildings. In addition, the constant querying of the GPS location leads to higher battery consumption.
The decision for or against the emergency call watch with GPS should be made based on the specific requirements and circumstances. While the lack of a base station can be advantageous in some situations, the increased power requirement and limited location accuracy indoors should be considered.

Emergency watch with medication reminder for seniors

The emergency watch for senior citizens is an essential aid, especially for dementia patients. This watch not only offers the option of making an immediate call in an emergency, but also has an integrated medication reminder function.

With a built-in microphone and hands-free function, seniors can initiate emergency calls directly from the watch. At the same time, an SMS with the GPS location information is automatically sent to stored contacts. This enables family members or caregivers to react quickly to the situation.

The watch is waterproof and sends an additional alarm to saved contacts if the medication is not taken. This gives the caregivers the opportunity to act immediately if the patient does not take their medication as prescribed.

In addition to emergency communication, the watch reminds the wearer to take their medication at regular intervals, which promotes independence and increases safety at the same time.

Runaway protection for dementia patients: safety through GPS monitoring

The orientation difficulties of dementia patients, especially in new and unfamiliar places, can be a considerable challenge. To minimize the risk of wandering off, special wander-off protection systems are available that enable continuous monitoring.

These systems, often referred to as dementia monitoring systems, use GPS technology to accurately determine the patient’s position at all times. This enables relatives and care staff to react quickly to potentially dangerous situations.

It is important that these technical requirements are met to ensure that the system functions smoothly and effectively protects the dementia patient.

Important requirements for the functionality of the system:
Battery: It is essential that the device's battery is always charged to ensure uninterrupted monitoring.
Wearing style: The device should be worn on the body at all times, ideally on the wrist or arm, to provide accurate data.
GPS and network reception: Strong GPS and network reception are required for the monitoring system to function effectively.
