The idea of the project is to prevent patients from putting themselves in danger whilst also giving them the freedom to move around as they please within reasonable restrictions in a given facility. For example, ensuring that dementia patients cannot leave a certain area would prevent them from wondering around the care home or a hospital or even outside where they could put themselves in danger. The product can be used in a range of environments such as those we have already mentioned (hospitals and care homes) and even the houses of dementia patients where the patient should be kept inside to prevent getting into danger outside. The product has a lot of room for expandability and development which will advance the system given time and resources.
Global Challenge 3: Good Health and Well-Being
Our product is based on the global goal number 3 which is good health and well-being. By using this goal, this allows us to come up with a product that would help people especially medical patients such as those with dementia and mental health conditions in situations where they can put themselves in danger or even risk their lives.
