  • What’s the problem?:

    You sometimes get a bit lost when you're out and about

  • What our testers liked:

    Home Testing 1:

    Very easy to use

    Carry case makes it easy to attached to a belt or can be put in your pocket

    The control panel and map were easy to log in to and see what was happening

    The family found it very reassuring when B was out for a walk that they could find him if he needed help

     

    Home Testing 2:

    Attached to mum's walking frame so she didn't leave home without it

    Used the geofence feature so we just got a notification when she left home and arrived at her destination, and vice versa.  That was enough to give us peace of mind.

    Daughter living further away felt more involved and up to date with how mum was doing

     

  • What our testers disliked:

    Home Testing 1:

    Sometimes pouch fell off belt when going to the loo, so we pinned it on

     

    Home Testing 2:

    Battery took a little bit longer to charge than first thought

  • What is interesting:
  • Speed was interesting. We could see if Mum was walking, or on the bus
  • What our testers said:

    Home testing 2:

    It's given us so much peace of mind to know that Mum is safe, without restricting her usual routine in any way.
