Where dementia, big data and IoT meet
Sydney, 8th November 2016:
Veteran technologist Peter Vogel, who developed the first “Vitalcall” personal alarm 30 years ago, is back in the aged care business.
As CTO of Vitalcare, Vogel has developed a new system that takes over where his previous “pendant” alarm no longer meets the need.
“As the population ages, more and more people are living with varying degrees of dementia” Vogel says. “There comes a point where they won’t wear a pendant, or they don’t think to activate it when they need help.”
