TRACKING SYSTEM FOR ALZHEIMER’S PERSONS

 COLLABORATION BETWEEN

NATIONAL SPACE AGENCY

MINISTRY OF SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND INNOVATION

&

ALZHEIMER’S DISEASE FOUNDATION MALAYSIA        

MOSTI and ANGKASA Malaysia have developed an application using space/satellite technology (in the form of a watch to be worn by the Alzheimer’s person) that would benefit the Alzheimer’s community. This GPS monitoring system, tailors to fit the needs of the Alzheimer’s persons, providing an alternative way for the guardian/caregiver and care centre to monitor the movement of the AD persons.  

The Alzheimer Trigger, Tracking and Tracing System (ATTRACT) for senior citizens with Alzheimer’s disease, under the MOSTI Social Innovation Programme (MSI Programme), is a research collaboration between ADFM and ANGKASA.  Through this MSI Programme, the movement of senior citizens with Alzheimer’s disease will be monitored using a wrist watch enabled with satellite technology, SOS and virtual boundary control.  It aims to provide caregivers with an alternative method of monitoring the movement and improving the safety of their loved ones who are living with Alzheimer’s.

If the feedback is positive from this pilot research programme, ANGKASA will arrange to have this device be made in Malaysia and will monitor locally with the objective to make the pricing affordable to all the caregivers in the country.           

Qualified participants (caregivers of the AD persons) will receive a GPS gadget (FOC) from ADFM for this pilot research programme. 

 

The device (a wrist watch) is to be returned to ADFM and ANGKASA after the 2-3 months trial period.

 

Interested participants are required to provide full details of their particulars:

(1)    Full Name (according to NRIC)

(2)    Identity Card No.

(3)    Home Address

(4)    Guardian (Caregiver)

(5)    Contact (Mobile) No.

An ANGKASA Malaysia Officer will conduct a demonstration session explaining its procedures and also help the caregivers to download the application to their mobile phone during a Briefing Session to be organized and held at the ADFM PJ Day-Care Centre at No. 6, Lorong 11/8E, Seksyen 11, 46200 Petaling Jaya.

For more details of above pilot program, kindly contact Jenny at jenny@adfm.org.my or 016 608 2513 / 7931 5850.
