Today I’m starting an evaluation of “SeNCit” which is a new GSM sensor that I think is going to prove to be a big driver of mass market interest in home monitoring and could open up a wide range of new mHealth monitoring service opportunities for us here at 3G Doctor.
The product is essentially a fully adjustable motion, temperature and power supply sensor that is connected via an integrated GSM module and SIM card. I can see this type of mobile technology being adopted quickly because of it’s low purchase/maintenance costs and convenience/ease-of-use as primarily as a security/safety tool. But I also think it can add considerable value for people who live/work alone and will be of particular appeal to carers of patients who are at risk of falling, wandering or incapacitation.
Although the system is designed so that it can be used independently of call centres as part of this trial we’ll be investigating how it can be twinned with the 3G Doctor service as a solution for patients who want a trusted managed system that’s easily configured and controlled via their 3G mobile. As always if you’ve got ideas or suggestions please feel welcome to share them.
