The Vitalcare Daisy wireless pendant is optimised for use with arthritic hands and designed to look more like jewellery than a medical device to encourage use. It has approximately 10 times the range of traditional wireless devices and superior building penetration using LoRa based IoT spread spectrum technology. The device has a replaceable battery which typically lasts up to 3 years subject to use, and a replaceable plastic housing so can be refurbished economically to significantly extend its usable life.
The Daisy pendant is configured with a smartphone application provided by Vitalcare and features a tethered connection to the infrastructure notifying that it is active on the network and operating correctly. It can also be software upgraded with the programming software as enhancements are made over the life of the product. Combined with the Vitalcloud reporting application, the tethered nature of the pendant reduces compliance testing and management overheads and flags either missing devices or essential maintenance, such as a low battery, before there is operational compromise.
Daisy pendants support RTLS through native BLE support and has both a call and cancel button. Daisy pendants and wrist alarms are rated to IP67.
