Wearable Electronic for Better Quality Community Care of the Elderly II

This project aims to develop new sets of “Outer apparel made of ‘Nu-Torque’ cotton yarn" embedded with detachable GPS tracker and BLE device to be provided by LSCM and ASTRI. This phase II project will provide wearable devices tracking elderly people both in outdoor and indoor, thus enable location of lost elderlies easily and efficiently, improve the productivity of caretakers, enhance elderly caring service for organizations such as TWGHs.

If the elderly resident is wearing the outer apparel and then leaves the centre without warning, the RFID reader will ring the alarm and the staff members can find them as soon as possible. The built-in GPS and iBeacon tracking system also help caretakers easily manage the elderly whereabouts wherever they are during outdoor activities.
