Ortungsgerät in Armbanduhr beruht auf Cinterion-M2M-Technologie von Gemalto zum Schutz von Menschen mit Autismus und Alzheimer

Gemalto (Euronext NL 0000400653 GTO), das weltweit führende Unternehmen auf dem Gebiet der digitalen Sicherheit, gibt bekannt, dass seine Technologie Cinterion® M2M in das innovative TRiLOC™ GPS Personal Locator Device (PLD) integriert wird, mit dem Menschen mit Autismus-Spektrum-Störung (Autism Spectrum Disorder, ASD), Demenz und Alzheimer lokalisiert werden können. Die angenehm zu tragende Armbanduhrlösung enthält ein ultraschmales Cinterion-Modul, das eine weltweite Kommunikation per Mobilfunk im 24-Stunden-Betrieb sowie eine Ortung mit GPS (Global Positioning System) ermöglicht. Das TRiLOC-Gerät unterstützt Pflegekräfte dabei, Menschen mit besonderem Betreuungsbedarf zu lokalisieren und zu schützen, sodass der Aufenthalt dieser Personen nicht ständig kontrolliert werden muss. Weltweit gibt es mehr als 30 Millionen Personen, die an Autismus oder Alzheimer leiden, und über 60 Millionen Pflegekräfte wünschen sich Lösungen, mit denen die Unabhängigkeit und Sicherheit dieser Menschen verbessert werden kann1.

Das von iLOC Technologies entwickelte TRiLOC PLD enthält das Modul Cinterion PHS8 M2M von Gemalto. Es liefert gleichzeitig Hochgeschwindigkeitsdaten und Sprachkommunikation sowie Ortungsdaten mithilfe von GPS. Die Lösung von Gemalto übermittelt den genauen Standort einer Person auf das Mobiltelefon oder den Computer einer bestimmten Pflegekraft, während, falls erforderlich, auch eine Zweiwege-Sprachkommunikation mit Freisprechfunktion über das Telefon möglich ist. Über eine entsprechende Funktion kann die Pflegekraft von einem anderen Standort aus mithören und so erkennen, ob unmittelbare Hilfe erforderlich ist, und der Träger des Geräts kann im Notfall eine SOS-Taste drücken. Das TRiLOC PLD kann über Bluetooth™ 4.0 mit mHealth-Geräten (mobile Geräte mit Gesundheitsanwendungen), intelligenten Hausgeräten und Sicherheitslösungen synchronisiert werden und Statusaktualisierungen an die Pflegekräfte senden. Optionales Zubehör für die Pflegekraft ermöglicht eine positionsspezifische Erkennung und elektronisches Tethering, das heißt, es werden sofort SMS und Audioalarme übermittelt, wenn eine Person sich zu weit weg bewegt. Außerdem kann ein Warnhinweis geschickt werden, wenn das fest am Körper gesicherte Bändchen manipuliert wird. Die erweiterte Energieverwaltungstechnologie Cinterion M2M von Gemalto verlängert die Akkulaufzeit für einen längeren Betrieb, bevor eine erneute Aufladung erforderlich ist.

„Wir haben den TRiLOC GPS Personal Locator entwickelt, nachdem wir zwei Jahre geforscht und intensive Gespräche mit Pflegeorganisationen und Eltern von Kindern mit ASD geführt hatten“, sagte Tony Fama, iLOC President, CEO und Vater eines Sohnes mit ASD. „TRiLOC verhilft meinem Sohn zu mehr Autonomie und er muss nicht mehr ständig unter Aufsicht gestellt werden. Mit der Tethering-Funktion können Familien oder Pflegekräfte Ausflüge zu Museen, Einkaufszentren und sogar gut besuchten Freizeitparks planen, ohne dem erheblichen Stress ausgesetzt zu sein, dass Personen weglaufen könnten.“

„Es freut uns wirklich sehr, dass unsere Technologie das Leben von Menschen mit besonderem Betreuungsbedarf wahrhaftig verändert, also in diesem Fall von Personen, die man leicht aus den Augen verlieren kann“, sagte Norbert Muhrer, Senior Vice President von Gemalto M2M. „Wir konnten aufgrund unserer Entwicklungsarbeiten zur Miniaturisierung nun das bisher schlankste Modul produzieren, das Cinterion PHS8, das klein und gleichzeitig ausreichend leistungsstark ist, um in diese innovative Armbanduhr integriert zu werden. Gemalto trägt mit dieser Lösung wieder einmal dazu bei, die Sicherheit und den Komfort von Bürgern zu verbessern, indem wir das gesamte Potenzial der drahtlosen und digitalen Welten heben.“
