The device incorporates GPRS and uses the mobile phone network to send Chichester Careline Response Centre an accurate location and allows two-way conversation. Mindme also has the latest GPRS technology and a multi-network SIM is used to ensure that so long as a mobile network exists the device will always stay connected.

When you activate the alarm an operator will answer the call. Your location will appear on their monitor and you can talk to them. The operators are highly trained and experienced in answering calls for help from people who have had an accident, feel unwell or otherwise need help.

Providing the device is outside or near a window, Mindme's GPS will ensure the location is accurate to around 10 metres. However, because Mindme reports its location around every 4 minutes, even if the user is out of 'sight' of the satellites - in a large building for example - Mindme software can give a very good indication of your location even if you are inside.

Mindme is about the size of an electronic car key and can be worn on a belt, as a pendant, a key fob or in a pocket. It is neat, discreet and very easy to use.

Note:
You do not need the Careline Unit and Pendant with this product.  There is a monthly monitoring charge for this device which includes website access for users and carers .
