Caregiver by Fitbit
6 in 10 people with Alzheimer’s will wander away from their homes. What’s even scarier is that 75% of these individuals are found off standard roadways and sidewalks. These situations add to the existing stress of caregivers and subject the wandering individual to danger.
Utilizing the FitBit Surge’s current technology, Caregiver by FitBit measures the location and heart rates of individuals suffering from Alzheimer’s. Through the Caregiver app, assigned family members and friends can receive notifications if the individual with Alzheimer’s wanders away from their home or suffers heartbeat irregularities. In the face of a disease that consumes millions, Caregiver by FitBit’s technology lets those with Alzheimer’s keep their independence while providing their loved ones with peace of mind.
