Patient safety is important to every hospital marketing effort. Yes, health care is still a business like any other business. How can patient safety improve? One way is for doctors and nurses to wear shoes built for comfort that can also serve as a health monitor. Now there are syncing technology shoes that can:
- Motivate a person to get out and walk
- Monitor your heart rate and blood pressure
- Responds to voice commands
The new line High Lights are an incredible innovation, and the perfect mix of comfort, useful tech, and affordability. The team at high beams crammed much of tech in these shoes with more still to come. Here is a list of what synching technology shoes can do:
Voice activated Head light system: One single light, is super powerful and discreet. Simply say “lights on”, and the lights come on and shine up to 50 feet with 180 degree radius.
Fall Notification: A series of built-in gyros also other sensors, trigger a fall alert if the shoes are at irregular positions for a time. A pressure sensor in the sole lets the shoes know if the wearer is in the shoes or not. The shoes vibrate and the lights start to blink to alert the wearer. If the shoe receives no response from the wearer, the shoes make a decision. Once the shoe determines a fall has occurred, it takes action.
Alert Messaging: Once a fall has been detected, the shoes send messages to the contacts that have been programmed into the app. included in the message is a location map.
Follow Up Phone Call: If the shoes receive no response from the wearer or the messaging, they start calling the people in the app. If there is still no change…alarm is issued and last text At this point the shoes trigger the phone alarm (via the app) to each person the phone app list, and last text is sent.
The Shoes Call 911: The shoes notify emergency services via phone call, (and text where available).
The new High Light series can monitor heart rate and blood pressure at regular intervals and send vitals via text to care givers or family. Each shoe has the technology already inside, all the user needs to do is select the options they wish to use, via the phone app. Our team is working on other technology, like drug monitoring, to prevent accidental overdose or to remind the wearer to take the medicine. You can watch an actual working model in the video. Release date is this year and expected cost from $120-150.
