TEC-Angel exhibits SBD accredited product at The Alzheimer’s Show
Secured by Design (SBD) member company TEC-Angel was among more than 60 exhibitors at the recent Alzheimer’s Show hosted at London Olympia.
The show, the UK’s leading event for families, carers, and care professionals dealing with dementia, brought together the latest thinking, support, advice, practical tools and experts under one roof to help families, carers and professionals access the support and help they need.
Arc Informatics showcased their SBD accredited product TEC-Angel, a monitoring and alert system to provide safety & security for vulnerable people wishing to live independently.
The show also offered talks, practical activities and free advice clinics with nurses and leading professionals. TEC-Angel’s Business Development Manager Karen Cole delivered one such talk ‘Loosing the Button’.
TEC-Angel Founder Nigel Mills said: "The Alzheimer’s show gave us a great platform to showcase our product to our direct customers and healthcare professionals. We found the experience enriching, not only to promote our product but also gaining a greater understanding of Dementia as a whole".
TEC-Angel is easy-to-use system and looks for changes in normal daily activity of a single vulnerable person within a dwelling. It monitors the home not the person and can also detect the likelihood of a fall when that fall affects the person’s normal routine. With no prying cameras or microphones, a combination of movement and door sensors placed in the most-used rooms link wirelessly to a mains-powered communications hub where its intelligent software automatically alerts a designated carer’s mobile phone via text to let them know if things are not quite as expected.
The system is suitable for the elderly, infirm, disabled and those with memory problems, a monitoring and alert system that can be used either on a standalone basis or as part of an individual’s care package within the home to provide round-the-clock assurance for family members.
Allowing loved ones to retain their dignity by assisting them in the comfort of their own home. TEC-Angel enables people to continue their daily routines with their independence and privacy intact as long as it is safe and practical to do so.
