In the ever-evolving landscape of aged care, HLS Healthcare proudly introduces Elma™ Smart Detection, a groundbreaking solution developed by MariCare. Elma™ stands as the pinnacle of innovation, offering a comprehensive suite of features designed to enhance your residents’ safety, well-being, and dignity.
As we delve deeper into the challenges faced by aged care, it becomes evident that proactive, personalised, and dignified care is paramount. Nearly 50% of elderly individuals in residential aged care facilities experience falls¹, and with the number of Australians living with dementia set to more than double by 2058², the need for innovative solutions is greater than ever.
Elma™ Smart Detection seamlessly communicates through both wired (PoE) and wireless (Wi-Fi) infrastructures, granting access to a user-friendly interface and providing real-time activity monitoring for proactive healthcare. Covering larger areas, including hallways, dining spaces, entry/exit points, and wet areas, each sensor spans approximately 15 meters, ensuring optimal visibility.
Operating as a central hub, Elma™ boasts a built-in BLE (Bluetooth) capability, enabling connection with various MariCare devices like bracelet alarm transmitters. This feature transforms Elma™ into the heart of intelligent monitoring, ensuring a new level of safety and convenience.
