Tech Startup LocateMotion Launches Integrated IoT App & Wearable Device Kickstarter Campaign Focused On Helping Families “Stay Together”

Ontario, Canada, Jan. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — LocateMotion offers families and caregivers a first-of-its-kind integrated wearable device that works “out of the box, simple to use and extremely affordable” as it is based on latest Internet of things (IoT) technology. The LocateMotion Caregiver Solution is integrated with an iOS/Android App, and the Internet of things (IoT) GPS integrated wearable solution is designed with objective of helping families living with challenges such as Autism, Alzheimer’s, and Dementia stay safe. The Caregiver Watch Solution is a GPS “track, talk and care” device with 3G/4G and IoT wireless connectivity which enables caregivers to monitor and quickly locate and contact loved ones like kids / toddlers and elders who might wander or need to be tracked. The LocateMotion solution has been designed to achieve all this while still keeping the data costs extremely low.

LocateMotion has launched a Kickstarter campaign for the Caregiver Solution to speed up and bring this vital healthcare solution to market faster. The goal is to encourage more people to get involved in keeping loved ones (with or without disabilities) safe and sound. For remaining days, backers can pledge (any amount $10 and above) to ensure that users such as Autistic children and Alzheimer’s seniors are found quickly when they wander.

The Problem Identified . . .

There are nearly 5.5 million people living with Alzheimer’s just in the United States (stats suggest that today 1.5% of world’s population has some form of dementia). Three out of five of those people will wander at some stage of their life. Research has shown that fifty percent of Alzheimer’s loved ones who wander will be seriously injured while lost if not found within 24 hours.

It is also known that nearly 50 percent of all children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) will wander (1 in 68 boys have some form of Autism and it is fastest growing health condition among kids). These children often wander into very dangerous situations, given their attraction to seclusion or water. With the inability to communicate effectively, it is often very challenging to find them before serious injury.

The LocateMotion Solution . . .

LocateMotion has been designed with a primary aim to keep all loved ones with Autism, Alzheimer’s, and Dementia safe and easily locatable 24/7. But it can also be used to keep track, monitor and stay together with infants, toddlers and elders. In future, this solution will become “the find solution” not only for people but also for pets and things.

Our innovative integrated “out of box, simple and affordable” Caregiver Watch Solution is an:

  1. IoT GPS wearable smart watch plus
  2. IoT Nano-SIM inserted to the watch and activated on arrival (Talk, SMS, Data plan)
  3. LocateMotion Application (iOS / Android) downloaded from app store
  4. LifeTime Watch Warranty with 30 Day Money Back Guarantee
  5. After Sales Technical and Billing Support

The device is wearable and attractive and the solution helps loved ones with Autism, Alzheimer’s, and Dementia feel confident and independent.
