Emergency call watch for dementia patients

The invisible protective fieldDementia & JAMES

When the elderly parents live alone or are suffering from dementia, the relatives live in constant concern and alert. Because you never know if they are well or if they might need help.

The JAMES Dementia Watch tries to alleviate worries like these and fill gaps in supply. People with a tendency to run away* receive the emergency call with a predefined – but individually adjustable – radius of movement / runaway protection. If the person concerned leaves this zone, a passive alarm is triggered, which is forwarded to the responsible helpers. They can subsequently call the person on the watch and are also able to quickly locate the person in need thanks to the precise location system. JAMES thus not only creates more security and freedom for those affected, but also for relatives and professionals in particular.

Reliable fall sensor: inactivity detection

In risky situations (falls, fainting, etc.), affected persons are often no longer able to make the life-saving call for help. However, thanks to its integrated inactivity recognition, JAMES sends an automatic alert signal (passive alert) to the personal alarm chain or a 24/7 emergency call centre. During the passive alarm, incoming calls are automatically answered. This enables the affected person to communicate with helpers despite immobility.

Further functions of the JAMES Safety Watch (telephony, chat calendar, etc.) can be either activated or deactivated in the JAMES App according to the needs of the sick person.

Case study

Scenario: Senior with a tendency to run

David P. lives together with his wife and his slightly demented father, Mr. P. in a two-family house. Although David takes great care of his father and also takes over most of his care, it still happens from time to time that Mr. P. leaves the house unnoticed. He is always drawn to his former house, which he lived in together with his now deceased wife. However, due to his dementia, he no longer finds the right way to his desired destination and gets lost. In these moments David is in the greatest concern and alert, especially since he does not know the exact whereabouts of his father.

But since David has been using the JAMES Dementia Watch from ilogs healthcare, he no longer has to worry about his father’s position. The watch has a predefined movement zone and sends an automatic alarm if the wearer leaves the invisible protective field. This alarm is sent to David’s smartphone via the JAMES App and contains the exact position data of his father. Due to the lockable and at the same time comfortable silicone watch strap, JAMES is always with you as a loyal companion.

Dementia mode for nursing homes

The JAMES Safety Watch for professional dementia care

Nursing staff have a legal duty of care towards persons in need of care.

In the case of the disappearance of a person at risk of running away, this can have criminal consequences for the responsible carers and thus becomes a daily burden.

Existing door-exit systems sound the alarm as soon as the person with the corresponding bracelet leaves the building, but they can no longer be located precisely outside the building. Nursing staff must therefore react in the shortest possible time in order to be able to locate missing persons promptly.

For this reason, ilogs healthcare developed the JAMES Dementia Watch, which is designed to reduce the pressure on nursing staff.

Intelligent Alarm Management

Thedoor exit alarm is combined with an outdoor tracking device and is easy to install. The respective door must only have a power connection and be equipped with the JAMES Door Box. The entire logic lies in the watch, which has a secured bracelet. Thanks to the soft silicone material, the lockable bracelet is also very comfortable to wear.

The JAMES dementia functions at a glance:

  • An alarm is triggered shortly after leaving the building
  • The clock starts immediately with the in- and outdoor positioning system via GPS-/WPS-/LBS-Tracker
  • The nursing staff can locate, pick up and accompany the person being cared for via app on the smartphone or web portal
  • All other functions of the clock are deactivated, but can be reactivated in the JAMES Portal as required


*Wandering: Thetendency to wander used to be called runaway tendency, especially since many dementia patients have a tendency to run away. In the meantime, however, it has been recognised that those affected not only want to “get away”, but that they want to go on their way with a certain destination.
