GeoNavo Partners With BlooLoc

Creating a new level of safety in Senior Care Facilities

GeoNavo (Hammonds Plains, Nova Scotia, Canada) has teamed up with BlooLoc (Herent, Belgium) to build a solution to significantly improve safety in residential care facilities. BlooLoc is a top-performer (according to a recent report from Grizzly Analytics, US) in indoor positioning solutions (“IPS”). BlooLoc’s IPS technology tracks and traces people or assets with the use of mobile tags, smartphones or tablets. With this technology, GeoNavo can now accurately follow the location of elderly residents and staff to detect hazardous situations and minimize incident response time. GeoNavo's Safety+ IPS platform incorporates BlooLoc's yooBee technology.

Taking care of elderly dementia or Alzheimer patients often leads to problematic situations. The resident leaves his or her room in the middle of the night, starts wandering around the facility and may even enter the room of another resident. Safety+ enables the staff to quickly find this person, and to even detect and avoid a hazardous situation before it happens. In cases of patients falling down or not being able to get up without any help, IPS offers a great solution and for the relatives of elderly patients it adds peace of mind.

GeoNavo plans the roll-out of its Safety+ solution in Senior Care residences in the second half of 2016.
