Simple mode is used for those who don't classify themselves as "tech-savvy," and would feel more comfortable with two basic need options: emergency and assistance. When assistance is selected, the caregiver will come to the patient bedside where the patient can verbally communicate their need.
Child mode is used for children who may be intimidated by a hospital atmosphere. This mode allows them to feel more comfortable with playful yet identifiable need options. This includes emoticons and child-friendly images that make the experience more comfortable, interactive, and transparent for the younger patients.
The voice activation feature is incredibly useful to ALL patients, but especially those with motor impairments in their arms or patients coming out of surgery, who are physically unable to use a remote to call for help. By simply being in range of the tablet, the patient can say "need caregiver" and then specify their need, and the system will send a message directly to the caregiver. It's that easy.
Our head gesture feature, like the voice activation feature, can be used by any patient type. Specifically those with a motor impairment who are also unable to use the voice activation due to intubations, tracheotomies, etc. Activating the head gesture feature will allow the patient to select need options on the tablet by simply moving their head and the cursor will follow.
