National centre of reference for the attention of people with Alzheimer's disease and dementia in Salamanca (http://www.crealzheimer.es/) has relied on Divisa iT for designing and implanting a technological platform for wandering management.
The center not only covers care (residential stays and daily, respite care, etc.) but also is national centre of reference of research, analysis, knowledge, evaluation and training on Alzheimer and dementia.
The platform for wandering management implanted by Divisa iT based on active RFID technology (433 Mhz) allows know each patient´s position (coordinate) in the Center in real time. For this purpose patient will wear armband with an active label (tag) which emits a signal. A network of antennae has been installed in the center that receives the signal, the signal is transmitted through data network and is interpreted by applications that are developed and implanted in the platform. The position is stored in a database, which will allow carry out future research about each patient´s psychomotor behavior and how patient is affected by treatments, disease´s evolution, etc.
The platform implemented allows manage personal alarms for each patient, some functions available are identification and assignment of allowed and forbidden transit areas depending on each patient.
The Project has been developed with collaboration of 2000iR company from Salamanca and used Cedetel´s technology WiLocT.
