Clairvoyant Unveils Theora Care for Caregivers to Connect with, Monitor People with Memory Loss, Alzheimer’s
Clairvoyant Networks is accepting pre-orders for Theora Care, a new line of caregiver solutions designed to locate and connect with loved ones living with conditions like dementia, memory loss, or Alzheimer’s disease. The devices are expected to be launched this spring, according to the company’s website.
Clairvoyant presented Theora Care at the 2018 Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society conference, held March 5-9 in Las Vegas.
The HIMSS 2018 meeting was a gathering of more than 40,000 health IT industry leaders, educators, speakers, and others to discuss today’s innovations that could help create a better future.
The watch and app provide a two-way communication system between the wearer and caregiver that delivers critical information, such as location and condition of loved ones, alerts when the wearer strays from “safe zones” (set up in the app), hands-free audio (no button pushing required), and an SOS emergency function that contacts the caregiver directly.
The device is tailored for patients who want to live independently while having a back-up monitoring resource when caregivers aren’t there, allowing them to reach out almost instantly, removing some stress from the situation.
In a press release, Clairvoyant selected AT&T as its network provider to connect Theora Care. An AT&T SIM card transmits data over Clairvoyant’s network with no activation required by the user to simplify the process of localization.
Theora Care also offers Theora Sense, an in-home remote monitoring system that relays real-time activity and environmental information to the caregiver via the Theora Link smartphone app; and a Theora Rest service, which is bedtime sensor installed over the bed to get real-time monitoring about loved ones getting into and out of bed.The sensor also relays real-time activity through the Theora Link app.
Although there are not many resources available about the product, more detailed information can be found through videos the company has released.
