The m-health exploration was part of a larger project at T-Mobile in which we were trying to understand the modern family dynamic and to design and develop products that fit an aging population that were interested in “aging in place”.
The Well Care suite was a new product and service concept that helps loved ones ensure the well being of their elderly family members while also maintaining their independence. WellCare is a small device worn by an elderly family member. Built in motion detectors inform the caretaker their loved one is active. Additionally, a pill monitoring system lets you know when medication has been taken. This information can be sent to the caretaker’s cell phone, email, or webpage as often or little as you would like.
