Taking Carev of The Elderly With Devices and Equipment


v of Things Internet

The presence of elder care monitoring devices that allow internet use is convenient. Sharing of health data from the device to the computer is possible. Medical technology has advanced a lot. The Internet of Medical Things makes it feasible for communication between the patient and the adult caregiver to be complete. Even without physical assistance, the patient is capable of monitoring his health.


v Camera

It is a reality that seniors at least 60 years of age may experience abuse. This includes physical, sexual, emotional, and neglect among others. The sad thing about it is that most cases are not reported. To solve these unpleasant scenarios, the aid of a hidden camera is suitable. This is especially necessary when the elder patient has mental or health issues. Suspicious interaction with the caregiver is accessed on the video footage. An alternative elder care monitoring device is the presence of sensors. Being wireless and tiny in nature, the patient’s activities are known. Sudden changes in the routine are notified through mobile, email or telephone. With these sensors, the family members and caregiver are informed of any suspicious action.


Virtualv Assistant

The existence of a virtual assistant is also convenient for the elder patient. Touchscreen tablets have apps with voice recording. It feels like attention is given to the patient without physical presence. In a high-tech medical world, robots may be programmed at home to give reminders. Also, entertaining the patient by playing music and engaging in dialogue is an option. Pressing buttons to instruct the robot what to do is meaningful.


Physical Rehabilitation v Equipment

When it comes to walking rehabilitation equipment, the main goal is to let the elder patient walk well. The strength of the lower extremities, raising confidence, and encouraging independence are desired. By using the appropriate equipment, normal walking is realistic. There are support, guidance for the physical therapist, and controlling the trunk. Development of the desired gait becomes visible over time.
