Vega is a location aware wearable personal alarm
Vega is a specifically designed system that promotes independent and active living for people with dementia.
What makes the Vega so different?
There is no point in having a device that is mobile if it stays at home when the wearer goes out
The Vega can be worn on a lanyard, clipped onto a key ring, on a belt, clipped onto clothing or to a bag, worn as a wrist watch with a standard strap or even on a bracelet that is hard for the wearer to remove. The Vega can be worn at all times as it is waterproof. The wearer never has to take it off as it is recharged while worn.
Locating the wearer must be possible everywhere; at home, outdoors, and inside.
At home, the system uses a base station for locating the Vega
An alert can happen anywhere so 24hrs a day we need to know where the Vega is. A typical wearer is at home more than 80% of the time. With our Base Station in the house we know definitively that the Vega is there. This also allows the system to alert if the wearer has not come home or even if they leave during the night.
When away from the home the system can use several methods to position the Vega:
- GPS satellite location when the Vega is outdoors (with A-GPS)
- GSM cell-tower location when the device is inside or sheltered from the sky
- GSM 2-way audio to hear what is happening nearby (passers-by, cups clinking, train announcer)
