Presentation : Swap is a stand-alone GPS keychain for people with Alzheimer's disease, connected remotely to an application designed for caregivers. This solution allows loved ones to be reassured about the health of the patient and prevented in case of problems. The wearer feels safe on the move.
Principle: The application is connected 24/24 and 7/7 to the swap keychain. Caregivers with the application receive the GPS coordinates of the carrier continuously. The key holder has a battery life of more than 30 days and is recharged by induction on its charging stand. The object is customizable, in the form of key rings, clips, bracelet perfectly adapting to the daily life of the patient. The object is available for sale or rental from the website: www.swap-assist.fr
The application: Access to the application is carried out using secure codes (identifier + security key) provided at the opening of the contract. The application automatically retrieves the encrypted data from the keychain. She allows to : - Locate the patient in real time - Be alerted in case of fall detection - Define a walking area, alert in case of passing - Define a time limit of presence at home, alert in case of overrun - Know the battery level of the key holder and be alerted in case of low battery - Access the activity history of your loved one over several days - Take advantage of the latest news on Alzheimer's disease and follow a caregiver support program developed by our partner, the Claude Pompidou Institute of the Hospital of Nice.
Recommendations: Several relatives have simultaneous access to data from the Alzheimer patient. It is recommended to connect several caregivers (several applications) to the same keychain. "The Main Caregiver" can invite for free up to 5 of his relatives to have access to the data of the wearer via the application.
Distinctions and Partners: The Swap project has won 7 Innovation and Health competitions. The Research & Development teams work from the Micro-electronics Center in Provence. Ergonomics and the medical protocol were studied in collaboration with the teams of Professor Robert, Director of the Memories of Resources and Research Center at the Claude Pompidou Institute of Nice University Hospital.
