Peace of mind for expat pensioners

IT could revolutionise caring for the elderly and put families’ minds at rest.

Two Malaga companies have united to invent a new monitoring system to keep check on vulnerable people.

Ingenia and Clock Technology have combined forces to develop a highly accurate system that can locate, identify and take pictures in real-time of people and objects in an enclosed space.

It has already been put to the test in a cerebral palsy centre and in the Sanysol retirement home in Torre del Mar with ‘excellent results’.

The system, developed as part of a research and development project funded by the Technological Corporation of Andalusia (CTA), is capable of remotely monitoring a person’s every move using radiofrequency signals and

cameras to capture real time images, making it ideal for nursing homes, day care centres and even prisons.
