CareBand is a wearable technology for seniors living with dementia and a powerful data insights platform that provides care staff with critical details to make informed care decisions. Utilizing a smart internet of things platform, CareBand provides real-time location tracking, a nurse call button and data informed care insights. With minimal infrastructure, CareBand extends existing wander management and nurse call systems beyond the doors of facilities increasing mobility and resident freedoms while preventing elopement. The CareBand platform has been specifically designed and developed for use in senior living and long term care communities as well as in home health care to improve quality of care and reduce hospital admissions. With a focus in providing the right care at the right place at the right time, CareBand enables proactive care while reducing staffing and hospitalization costs.
With CareBand, the realizations of effective management include early detection of ongoing comorbid conditions, symptom relief and reduction of caregiver distress. Management strategies are influenced by active location data collection and evaluation. Algorithms include early detection change in condition associated with onset of infections including urinary tract infection (UTI) and pneumonia (frequently associated with episodes of aspiration), detecting escalating behavioral episodes of agitation and anxiety, monitoring for depression and apathy patterns of behavior, monitoring for signs of worsening comorbid conditions including congestive heart failure (CHF) and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) with decreased activity patterns, and quantitating activity change after initiation of treatment programs tracking the influence of pharmacological and nonpharmacological interventions.
CareBand is well positioned for success and making a meaningful impact to residential dementia care. With the opportunity to accurately collect, manage, and analyze data from this wearable device, CareBand provides a complete solution. This individualized approach has been tested and iterated on since the beginning of the company in 2016. With the patent-pending product and platform built, we are excited to start clinical studies in Q4 2017 in select senior living communities.
