This means that patients with dementia regain more freedom, and caregivers and family members are being relieved. The good response from the exhibition visitors shows, that products like guard2me© convince the public: On the Mobile World Congress LOSTnFOUND recorded a very great interest. Numerous media representatives and potential customers from the industry gave the tracking device including app or web portal much attention. In addition, the system has been awarded a further price : Besides the “Innovations 2014 Design and Engineering Award” from the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas guard2me© received in Barcelona the Envisioneering Innovation & Design Award.

The system, which was especially developed to support dementia patients, consists of three main components: a GPS watch with embedded tracking device and SIM card and a web portal or app for smartphones. The location of the wearer of the watch is tracked via GPS and then transmitted to the web portal via the mobile network. The current position can be shown on a digital map (Google maps). As a special feature, the system can track the wearer even when he/she is indoors. An intelligent sensor integrated into the watch recognizes when the wearer has fallen and immediately sends a text message to the caregiver. The guard2me©-watch is also equipped with an SOS button. guard2me© will be available on the market from early March 2014.
