How to Optimize Elderly Relationships and Emergency Response

Zanthion believes that the most important moments in senior lives are first touch moments during times of duress. We believe this specifically because there exists a close association between the physical and cognitive abilities of the elderly population and their familiarity with a particular environment. A more common condition underlying familiarity and the elderly is Mild Cognitive Impairment, which is a precursor of dementia (Werner, Heinik, & Kitai, 2013). We can fortify the functional and cognitive ability of older adults by providing personalized familiarity.

The cost of emergency vehicle transport is $165 a mile and recently cities and counties have started to bill users of 911 for any visit to their home. The average bill throughout the United States is $1,100.

Enlisting FAMILIAR Caring People Nearest You

Quality of Life for Everyone

Crowdsourcing Care

Crowdsourcing is enlisting the help of neighbors and friends through the use of an easy to use application.  Family, neighbors, and friends register to help neighbors in their neighborhood and are notified of either an incident or a request for help on the FREE Zanthion Caregiver Application. 

Wearable Monitoring

Our Open/Close Window and Door Sensors can be installed on any window or door and work in concert with all our other sensors including those worn on the senior. Open/close sensors are battery operated and indicate when the batteries need to be replaced on our mobile application and dashboard.

Wall Motion Detector

Motion Sensors

The Zanthion Motion Sensors are BLE sensors working in concert with our suit of sensors notifying caregivers of lack of movement if a senior enters a bathroom and does not leave or if there is no movement in the home during waking hours and the senior is home. Typically motion sensors are placed in rooms, bathrooms, hallways, and living areas. These sensors work in concert with our exit alarms and provide presence awareness and track movement.

Bed Exit Alarms

The Zanthion bed exit alarm is attached to the mattress with carbon tape and is individually tailored providing the unobtrusive freedom seniors might need when waking in the middle of the night. With our bed exit alarm seniors can leave their bed for whatever timeframe has been specified. Monitoring hours are set between intervals so that those seniors who are late to bed need not worry. If a senior being monitored does not get back in bed within the specified timeframe a notification will be sent to their caregivers. The Zanthion Bed Exit Alarm stands out from all other bed exit alarms because it works in concert with our automatic fall detection, motion sensors, open/close door sensors, geo-fencing, and GPS to paint a picture of not only what and when, but where and why.

Voice Enabled Commands

Voice enabled commands are especially powerful for people suffering from mental decline.  Zanthion uses smart speaker technology for voice commands to request help and activate either earbuds or speakers.  Soothing music and appropriate directions can help a confused person calm down and find their way in a confusing environment.
