Thursday 10th December 2015 – Kingston, Jamaica: Digicel Business is extending its Internet of Things (IoT) portfolio with the launch of another innovative solution, Digicel CareClip, which caters to those who require assisted-living but want to maintain their independence. This launch was made possible through its partnership with Motech Electronic Devices Limited which offers a unique line of assisted living and health solutions.
Digicel CareClip is an easy to wear device that gives the wearer peace of mind by way of an advanced fall detection technology that triggers a two way communication between the wearer and the care agent. Digicel CareClip also features a panic button that can trigger alerts so that emergency contacts are notified immediately. The caregivers also benefit as they have the reassurance that their loved ones will be supported – no matter where they are – as they can monitor their safety 24 hours a day from any place and any device through the online web portal or the Android mobile app which can be downloaded from the Google Play Store. While its primary use is in the healthcare sector, Digicel CareClip is also very well suited in the lone worker area where the safety of staff while working alone or during evening hours is a concern.
Chief Operating Officer for Digicel Business, Martin Carroll, said; “With Digicel CareClip, those who require assisted living and those who care for them will have the peace of mind that they are benefiting from the latest technology that monitors their movements and alerts the necessary caregivers in case of an emergency. Digicel Careclip is also a great product for enterprises in the care and health services sector to expand their offering with innovative Digicel solutions.”
Chief Executive Officer of Motech Electronic Devices Limited, Paul Flavin, said; “We are delighted to be working with Digicel and its partners in the Caribbean, Asia Pacific and Central America on the CareClip solution. Digicel has always been known for its innovation and deep community engagement and we see the mobile care service as a perfect marriage of the two – a robust mobile service that ensures the safety of the users in the community”.
