Alzheimer’s is a form of dementia, a degenerative disease that progresses slowly and has a strong emotional impact on the whole family. Doctors, researchers, politicians, and non-profit organizations are making enormous efforts to find a cure for Alzheimer’s disease which is considered one of the greatest health and social threats of the 21st century. However, Hipo, an innovative monitoring device for patients with Alzheimer’s Disease has been developed by Mosaikx.

Hopi monitoring device for patients with Alzheimer’s Disease
Patients with Alzheimer’s Disease must be kept under surveillance because they are a danger to themselves and to the others, as well. This can be a very difficult task for family or caregivers.
Luckily, the team from Mosaikx developed the first wearable device for Alzheimer’s patients, Hipo.
Hipo permits caregivers or the patient’s family to surveil patients’ day-by-day necessities and remain connected to them at every time.
Also, Hipo gadget permits caregivers to establish a plan for Alzheimer’s Disease patients, hint and support sufferers to accomplish their regular responsibilities and actions.
Even more, Hipo will immediately inform both caregivers and patients when a daily routine was not completed or skipped and will give weekly reports and hints regarding the progress of the patients.
Gadgets such as Hipo monitoring device for Alzheimer’s Disease patients are important because they offer caregivers and patients some control over the daily duties and gives reminders and reports to check the progress.
