Wearable devices are mainly developed with the young generation in mind. Fitness trackers, smartwatches, smart bracelets, etc are all targeted for the trendy youth. Among a range of different wearable tech, there are only a handful of them which are dedicated for senior citizens. CarePredict is a new tech company which is committed to keep the senior citizens and their children aware and up-to-date about their health. The company has developed Tempo, a monitoring and alert system which tracks and records the daily life activities of older people and informs their loved ones if there is a change in the pattern.

Tempo- a Wearable which can Turn out to be a Life Saver
This device gives the power to seniors to stay comfortable and safe in their own homes, in the process, providing their loved one peace of mind, as they know that they can provide help with just a notification.
It is not often easy for adults today, in their hectic life, to be always present and give care to their elderly parents. But, the worry remains. With Tempo, they can have a little less to worry about. With the tool, they will be on the knowhow if their parents’ well-being is compromised in any way and take proper care at the right time. It can even turn out to be a life saver by sending out notifications to the children if they notice a change in the daily life pattern of their parents.

How Does Tempo Help?
Tempo’s sensor technology keeps track of the patterns of the seniors in their daily life. If the pattern changes, their children are notified. The wearable monitors location (bathroom, bedroom, kitchen, living room, etc), motion (lying down, sitting, walking) and activities (sleeping, cooking, eating, bathing, etc) and creates a map of the daily habits of the seniors.
Even subtle changes like more time spent sleeping, slower motion, lesser time spent for cooking, etc. are recorded and they can act as indicators of any underlying medical condition or a change in the quality of their life. When the device notices these changes, it notifies the loved ones discreetly through email, text messages and/or mobile app alerts. This will help them to check in with their parents and provide them medical attention if required. It can be worn on the wrist and can be charged without any cords or wires.
