Elderly People Living Alone Can Be Monitored by New Sound System Technology
When you go out are you leaving an elderly person at home? Do you worry about them? Well there may be a solution to this. Japanese technology firm Fujitsu has now introduce a new sound monitoring system that is smart enough to differentiate between the sounds of a human collapsing and any other sound. Along with the normal sounds of breathing and coughing it can also record daily heat and humidity levels in the house. This Remote Monitoring Station is yet to be launched and expected to be in the market by December 2015. It will undergo initial trials in hospitals and government firms.
This new Monitoring Station will be running 24/7 without any interruption to privacy. Another advanced feature includes sensing the pattern of a person by sensing the change in heat stress. As life expectancy is increasing because of better health and medical facilities, the size of the elderly population is also increasing resulting in companies trying to build gadgets for the security and safety of elderly people, especially when they are alone in the house.
