Reminder Rosie is designed to be a friendly reminder system especially for those with cognitive impairment such as Alzheimer’s or other dementia. Rosie is a personalized and voice controlled reminder system that can store up to 25 different personal recurring reminders. It features a large display and is audible up to 100 feet away. Rosie can be programmed to remind a senior about appointments, tasks, medications and anything else.
HOW IT WORKS
Up to 25 reminders can be programmed for daily, weekly or one time tasks and appointments. Once turned on, the system will begin an initial setup through a voice guided tutorial. Once programmed, an elder can review the day’s reminders in advance with a voice command at any time. Rosie uses voice activated technology and can operate almost entirely by voice allowing a senior who is visually impaired to still get reminders that may be missed through a text message or other written alert. The system will maintain its daily reminders and all other critical features even during a power outage through its backup battery.
REAL WORLD USE CASES
Some ways Reminder Rosie could be configured for the safety of an elderly person living alone:
- Rosie reduces or even eliminates the family members having to constantly call to remind their loved one about day-to-day tasks or appointments.
- A visually challenged elder that has difficulty reading text messages or other smartphone reminders can be notified with a friendly voice to improve medication compliance and other important daily tasks.
Medication compliance and errors are top reasons why an elder in the community may be admitted to the hospital. Along with the spoken reminders from Reminder Rosie, consider a smart pill box system that can track adherence to a medication regimen specifically. These systems also have smart notifications for family members built-in.
