LOSTnFOUND has been recognized in the Annual Awards Program for guard2me©, a
digital aid for sufferers of dementia.
Millions of people around the world every year are diagnosed with
Alzheimer’s, which is characterized by dementia. Getting lost is a common
problem for people with the disease because their memory is impaired and they
easily get confused and wander off.
The guard2me© tracking device from LOSTnFOUND has been developed
to improve the lives and conditions for sufferers of Alzheimer’s and dementia. The
device, a watch worn around the patient’s wrist, tracks the location of the
patient at all times, allowing care providers and family members to locate a
patient who is lost or in an emergency situation.
The connected solution is composed of three main components; a guard2me©-watch,
an embedded SIM-card and service, and
the guard2me© web portal and app for smartphones.
Connexion LOSTnFOUND could take advantage of Telenor’s
extensive experience of provding connected business solutions as well as an
outstanding multi-operator agreement, which allows the guard2me© to operate
seamlessly in 145 countries.
”We are delighted that LOSTnFOUND has been honoured with this
award and are proud to be part of this smart and life-improving solution. It is
also an important recognition of the great need for connected solutions to help
medical providers monitor patients remotely and respond faster to emergencies”,
says, Per Simonsen, CEO of Telenor Connexion.
