Just yesterday we told you that it is fantastic to see how some companies, whether they are startups or large multinationals like in this case, get involved in some projects with the aim of improving people's quality of life. Panasonic is testing an advanced telecare service that uses a tablet as its primary means of communication. Although its usefulness remains to be seen, they have taken care of the details so that the people of the Third Age, who are the main beneficiaries, do not have problems using it. We tell you more below.

Telecare services are nothing new, in fact, in some autonomous communities of Spain, there are systems of this type for all older people with some problems, and they have the collaboration of large companies such as Movistar. What Panasonic is looking for is to go a step further, give it a little twist, taking advantage of the enormous potential that tablets have.

They have multiple functions among which are the daily reminders of <strong>visual and auditory form</strong> For people with memory problems, do not forget your appointments or the task you have to do.</p><p>They will also take advantage of the potential of<strong> cameras,</strong> They may be followed at any time by medical personnel or by family members. For this, and as you may have imagined, the tablet will have a large screen, sufficient audio power and should be located at a strategic point in the place of the house most frequented by the patient. In addition, the touch system is adapted so that the<strong> navigation is easy and intuitive</strong> for these people.</p><p>"As the aging of the population increases, there is an increasing need and an increased demand for <strong>healthcare solutions that are flexible</strong>»Explains Bob Dobbins, vice president of New Business Development at Panasonic who currently has an open casting to choose the tablet model that best suits the needs of the service that will begin to be implemented this November in North America.</p><p>Via: PCWorld</p><p></p><!-- WP QUADS Content Ad Plugin v. 1.8.17 --><div class=
