Neat deploys its assistive technology in the Casa Insieme Association in Italy

A project that makes possible to offer comprehensive care.

Casa Insieme Association, located in the province of Turin, is an institution founded in 1999 by a group of volunteers interested in creating a center for patients with advanced diseases and an adult day care center for people with Alzheimer’s.
In this place and in its spacious and unique gardens, doctors, nurses and volunteers have assisted more than 500 people and their families paying special attention to pain and physical and psychological discomfort.

The association promotes teamwork, supporting operators and volunteers with specific training, cares about the needs of patients and their families and accompanies them at all times, taking into account the physical, psychological, social, ethical and spiritual aspects of each individual.

Motivated by its vocation of comprehensive care, the Casa Insieme Association decided to seek a nurse-call solution that would allow it to meet four primary objectives: to have a simple, efficient and intuitive wireless technology that would replace its old  wired system; provide the highest possible quality of care to its patients and family members; provide mobility to both patients and care professionals and finally, have a system for recording and monitoring events that would make it possible to improve the work-flow of the staff.

To optimally cover the needs of the Casa Insieme Association, Exhibo, the Neat distribution channel in Italy, developed and proposed the installation project and carried out the technological deployment that included the following wireless solutions:

  • Portable call receiver (TREX) for caregivers, a small and discreet device, with a wide range of coverage that allows full mobility of staff, each generated alarm is received and displayed directly on the receiver’s screen thus ensuring the timely intervention.
  • Wireless pull and push buttons installed in rooms, bathrooms and common areas.
  • Bracelets for patients that allow them to request help just pressing a button.
  • A simple alarm management software, which allows recording alarms, the presence of the assistant, the end of assistance and so on.
  • Radio repeaters that ensure absolute coverage of the center.

The installation was carried out in just one day, without disturbing the patients, generating noise, or altering the work-dynamics of the center, because Neat’s wireless technology does not require infrastructure or construction.

Thanks to this powerful wireless nurse-call system from Neat, the Casa Insieme Association now enjoys huge advantages such as full coverage throughout the center, the mobility of professionals, which are very necessary to facilitate their work, freedom of movement also for the patients and easy reception and management of alarms. Which result in an optimization of resources.

Neat is the leading company in wireless call solutions, so trust in this multinational is to ensure its patients a high quality service.

How can the D-POS system help care centers create a space free of physical retraints?

Patient restraint systems, better known as “restraints”, have always been a very controversial practice in the health sector. Especially when it comes to patients with mental diseases such as Alzheimer. In fact, the European Council, in its recommendation Rec (2004) 10, ruled that “mechanical restraints should not be used” except “to avoid imminent harm to the patient or to other people”

How to avoid mechanical restraints in care centers?

Neat Group is totally agree with this recommendation and considers that technology can provide us with effective tools to avoid mechanical restraints.

Thus, for example, the D-POS system helps centers create safe areas where residents can wander. Its operation is very simple. Each patient wears a comfortable bracelet or pendant that allows unequivocally identifying the patient and knowing his location within the center. When a resident tries to access a dangerous area, leave the building, cross a preconfigured space or a door for which he does not have access, an alarm is generated immediately and  received in a device carried by the caregiver. TREX device, responsible for receiving this type of alarm, is small and comfortable, and identifies the patient and the place he is trying to cross. Thus, the caregiver can quickly attend the emergency and go to assist the resident who has generated the alert.

In this way, we guarantee respect for the dignity and autonomy of the person that should be the basic ingredients that include any medical protocol, while facilitating the work of caregivers of the residential centers.

NOVO was exhibited in Australia at a Legrand´s exclusive event

novo legrandDuring the launch event of the Legrand Eliot program in Australia, NOVO, the Neat’s new telecare terminal, was exhibited, integrated with a blood pressure device.

The event named Eliot Launch, was held on July 5 and took place at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA), at the Quayside Room, overlooking Syndey’s spectacular harbour, city skyline, the iconic Opera House and Harbour Bridge.

In addition to NOVO, several technological innovations of Legrand were also presented and Legrand senior executives gave conferences on the importance and repercussion of the Eliot program.

Eliot (a contraction of Electricity and Internet of Things, IoT) was announced two years ago with Legrand describing it as a program designed to speed up the deployment of its connected devices that would “facilitate the emergence of connected buildings wherever IoT can enhance use value for all users.”

The CEO of Legrand Australia and New Zeland Tony Berland told IoT Hub that the company felt the time was now right to launch in Australia. “It’s not only a matter of technology, it’s about how we can bring the product to market,” he said.

At the Australian launch, Legrand said it was mobilising the whole Legrand group behind Eliot with the aim being “to revitalise communication about Legrand products, wherever the Internet of Things can provide users with additional benefits.”

How should we prepare for active ageing?

pareja abuelosAccording to data published by the World Health Organization (WHO) on the International Day of the Elderly, currently, 700 million people are over 60, a figure that will rapidly increase to 2 billion by 2050, which will account for 20% of the world’s population.

The fact that human beings come to live at such advanced ages is, undoubtly, a success originated by the development of our health systems, the improvement of our diets and the increase of quality of life but also it is a challenge for our societies. Therefore, it is important to be aware of the need to plan our ageing, ensuring that we can live independently, safely and healthy.

Beyond having a pension plan to enable us to feel financially independent when we get old, we must take into acount our body and our mind in order to have an active ageing that allows us to remain independent at an advanced age.

There is not a magic formula for being young forever, but there are a series of habits that will help us to get older in a better way, such as a healthy diet, exercise at least three times a week, sleep well and maintain an active social life that will make us communicate and keep our intellectual capacities exercised. Without forgetting our health check-ups. All this will help us to reach an advanced age in better conditions.

Remaining independent at a certain age and with a reduction of some of our abilities, may involve the use of technology, which will allow us to live in our home safely without increasing our relatives’ workload. That is why, telecare services are a great tool because, beyond the typical alarm system, they usually provide us with a whole series of peripherals that keep us safe from all kinds of accidents at home, such as fires, domestic floods, gas leaks and so on.

EPI CARE 3000 has been tested with highly satisfactory results

ABEPI conducted a demonstration session of this sensor.

Creatividad Epi-Care 600x550px ENWith the objective of finding a reliable technological solution to support the nocturnal convulsive seizures of patients with epilepsy, the “Biscayan Association of Epilepsy Doctor Maribel Forcadas”, (ABEPI, by its acronym in Spanish), tested the epilepsy sensor EPI CARE 3000, distributed in Spain by Neat Group. The results of the test were very satisfactory; the device detected 22 crises without giving false positives.

The great success of this test motivated the desire of ABEPI to show this sensor to all those patients or associations interested in knowing and taking advantage of its benefits.

Therefore, ABEPI, with the collaboration of Neat Group held a non-profit demonstration day for dozens of attendees, on Wednesday, September 20, at 6:30 pm, in the municipal center of San Inazio-Ibarrekolanda.

The presentation and organization of the event was carried out by Juanma Puente, President of ABEPI, who presented the EPI CARE 3000 equipment and the successful results obtained during the month that they were testing it.

He also showed all the statistics of the tests and explained the configuration and operation of the device through two videos that he recorded specifically for the event.                ABEPI

“The installation of this epilepsy sensor is very simple and its daily use is simplified to the maximum to facilitate the operation of any user. The sensor is well prepared, both for use in homes and for installation in nursing homes, as it has the necessary peripherals to send a remote alarm, via radio to a pager and / or a monitoring unit or via SMS”, said Juanma Puente, who, in addition to being the president of ABEPI, is also the father of a patient who suffers epilepsy and participated in the test.

During the question session, Santiago Morales, KAM of the Commercial Department of Neat Group, clarified the doubts made by the attendees concerning the operation, coverage, warranty and prices of the sensor.

EPI CARE 3000 is an innovative small-sized device that unlike other sensors on the market, offers a high degree of sensitivity, it can detect not only the repeated movements resulting from severe convulsion, but also detects the soft convulsions that occur during sleep, in cases of nocturnal epilepsy. Because of its high sensitivity and reliability, the bed sensor is widely recommended for infants, children, youth and adults.
