The connected smart cane understands its user’s habits and deduces which situations are not usual.
The Smart Cane from Dring Alert Systems and FeetMe, monitors usage and creates a user profile. When the user deviates from the “normal” usage, or it detects something like a fall, automatically alert a specified contact.
It can detect tiredness, fall, later and later awakenings, and so on.
The cane directly connects itself to the GSM network (no other device required). Caregivers automatically receive a phone call, a text message or an email. It may include georeferencing (thanks to an embedded GPS system).
The caregiver signals that he/she can respond to the alert. Confirmation is sent to the cane, which lets its user know that someone has been warned.
