The role of innovating technology is to make life easier and more productive — one of the many inventions are surveillance cameras. These are widely used in establishments and private properties as a device that records activity in area 24/7 for added security.
But today, these cameras have already been upgraded and are now being handled differently. Nowadays, surveillance cameras are attached to humans as tracking device mostly on the elderly who are living on their own.
Keeping the old safe even when no one’s home has now been made possible through surveillance cameras. It has been a better way of keeping a ‘visual eye’ on people who are already of age.
Moreover, these surveillance cameras have an application that connects family members or hospital staffs. It notifies them whenever problems or incidents are occurring to an individual.
The sensors that detect these allows them to know whether they are doing well or not. And according to users, there has not been a problem on privacy matters reported from the developers of this device.
The surveillance cameras created for aged care by the University of Melbourne has been focusing more on these type of technology, adding more to what can eliminate usual problems with such family situations.
It also allows the age to do things more ‘independently’ as they are allowed to live life on their own (of course, with the help of cameras and sensors).
The camera’s sensors also alert family members whenever the patient is about to have a fall. It detects and predicts the fall through the monitors on their major joints determining the risks.
According to Frank Smolenaers, the university’s biomedical informatics researcher, the products and devices that they have been innovating are of no threat to medical and social workers as it should not replace jobs.
Although, at some point, there has been a shortage on the people in this field. The goal of these devices is to help ease the current pressure on monitoring and providing care for the aged.
This will help them do a control using new technology which will provide advanced information on the usual problems that they encounter.
As hospitals and other families adapt to new technology making it more useful in their daily lives. These surveillance cameras and sensors might save a life. Indeed, prevention is always better than cure.
