Sending out an SOS by watch phone for the elderly

Sending out an SOS by watch phone for the elderly | Aged Care in Australia | Scoop.it

Sydney-based personal care technology company mCareWatch has released a mobile personal device for the elderly that is part wristwatch, part mobile phone, part emergency beacon.

 

Aimed at the elderly living in their own homes as well as the independent living and residential aged care sectors, the SOS Mobile Watch looks like and actually is a watch, but it also functions as a mobile phone, a GPS tracking device and a medical alert system.

 

mCareWatch is a new company founded by Australian brothers Peter Apostolopoulos and Paul Apostolis, which specialises in using technology to support carers, the elderly and chronically ill. The SOS Mobile Watch is the company's first product and has been in development over the last two years.

 

Mr Apostolopoulos has a long history in health IT, having worked for NSW

Health and Queensland Health before heading to Singapore to work for telecommunications giant SingTel, while his brother – who changed the spelling of his surname many years ago – is a sales and marketing specialist.

 

Mr Apostolopoulos said that in addition to his background in health IT and eHealth, there was a personal reason for setting up the new company and aiming at the assisted living and personal care market.
