This is a more extensive version of the Life Alert whereby Xaveon
continually monitors the location (home, nursing home, hospital,
etc) and notifies the relevant response team if a threat is detected
or an accident occurs. This is especially helpful for users who
might not be able to push a button for a Life Alert.
Dan Belmont is a thirty-year
old paraplegic. Unable to care for himself, Dan requires the services
of a nursing home for many daily activities, but runs a successful
career as an online journalist. Dan lost mobility below his neck
during a surfing accident that broke his neck. Ever since, Dan
has sought a greater degree of independence from his physical
Choking is a frightening
reality for Dan. Because he has little control of his neck muscles,
swallowing food is not only difficult—it can be deadly.
Dan has no guarantee that a nurse will be able to aid him if he
begins to choke, especially because he has no way of pressing
a button to alert the necessary help.
