As life expectancy increases, the trend is for these expenditure levels to rise even further, as many illnesses are inherent to or related to the age of the sufferer.
In recent years, efforts have been made to improve and manage more effectively the resources that care for these patients, creating support units, training and raising awareness among families and using new technologies.
This last point is undoubtedly one of the most important and where great efforts are being made, but in view of the results it is not as effective as it should be.
A very large proportion of people suffering from chronic illnesses are elderly and therefore completely unfamiliar with new technologies.
We start from this last premise to offer accessible technological solutions to those who find themselves in the so-called digital divide.
This is the equipment for patients or relatives without technological knowledge. In addition to the usual TV channels (TVE1, TELE 5, Antena 3, etc.), it incorporates other channels that allow all the interaction functionalities:
Appointment reminders and real-time monitoring of medication intake, according to the prescribed treatment.
Make and receive video calls to health professionals, family members, friends and services.
By using videos, text or any other type of audio-visual information, the patient can find out about his illness, treatment, etc.
It also incorporates USB and wireless connectivity to receive information from health peripherals (blood pressure monitors, glucose meters, alarm buttons, etc.) and send it to the health system for integration into the clinical record. And all this in a simple, non-intrusive and understandable way for anyone, especially for the elderly, who spend an average of 4 to 5 hours a day in front of the TV.
Our system is flexible and scalable in a multitude of cases where personal attention is an essential requirement.
