Mario D’Aquila of Assisted Living Technologies, Inc. was the Keynote speaker at the “Getting Tech’d Out” fall conference at Camp Harkness in Watertown. The event was sponsored by the Family Support Division of the Connecticut Department of Developmental Services on September 25, 2014.
After opening comments by Terrance W. Macy, Phd., the Commissioner of DDS, Mario spoke to more than 100 attendees comprised of case managers, nurses, and social workers and demonstrated various sensor-based and wireless technologies that can assist individuals who wish to remain independent and safe at home.
There was discussion about the use of Remote Monitoring sensors which are placed strategically around a living environment and that measure and record an individual’s activities in a non-intrusive way, that can recognize when there may be a problem and notify a caregiver so that an emergency can be averted.
They also discussed how cellular technology and GPS have evolved to assist in locating and tracking someone who needs help in the community as well as various home-safety technologies.
