things is one of the burdens that elderly people must live with. But it
could be a larger obstacle in their independency when living alone in
their home environment. A reminder, which would alert them regularly
when to take the medicine, go to the doctor’s or a physiotherapist or
to perform a telemetric measurement at home, would be highly valuable.
»My reminder« is a service that we developed to fulfil the above
expectations. Its user may receive a reminding message in three ways:
as a voice message on an ordinary or mobile phone and a written message
as an SMS on a mobile phone or email in a mail box. Messaging system is
customised for single or repetitive events. For the later different
regimens are prepared, e.g. to take medicines within a limited time
period or with no time limitation (pills for blood pressure reduction,
for example). “My reminder” will send one or more daily messages at
selected hours or regular time intervals. The service is Internet
based. A potential user, his/her carer or even a nurse can input data
over the Internet and start the service.
»My reminder« was developed for users with special needs but is now
available to anybody who might benefit from it. We are confident that
it will be appreciated not only by its users but also by their carers
(daughters, sons, neighbours etc.) who will be released from the daily
care for their bellowed. The service is now available for testing also
within the “IRIS smart home”.
