Careband, a health and activity monitoring startup founded in 2016, recently published their first patent application. The company has developed a device and corresponding app that is primarily intended to track individuals with dementia and Alzheimer's, alerting their family and caretakers if they wander out of a predetermined range. While the device is a wristband, the company is not taking the same path as other wearables and implementing a lot of sensors. Instead, they claim pinpoint accuracy without WiFi or a cellular network, choosing to use LPWAN, and utilize predictive analytics to monitor for cognitive decline and other complications. It will be interesting to see if they implant this technology in other devices such as shoes or glasses, as well as expanding to other markets such as children.
