CARE TRAK MOBILE LOCATOR
The Care Trak Mobile Locator is a wireless signal transmitter and wandering patient system designed for use by caregivers of individuals with Alzheimer's Disease or cognitive, neurological, or mobility disabilities. It can also be used by law enforcement or emergency response personnel to locate a lost person. This portable device can be used alone or with the Care Trak Sentry Perimeter System (see separate entry) to locate an individual wearing a Care Trak Wrist Transmitter (see separate entry) who has wandered. It has a range of up to a mile. The Mobile Locater has an LED meter that shows the signal strength coming from the lost person's transmitter. It also emits an audible chirp when it senses a transmitter's signal. When the user points the antenna in the direction of the wandered person, the chirp gets louder and the LED signal meter jumps higher on the scale. WARRANTY: Limited 5-year warranty on all parts and labor.
CARE TRAK SENTRY PERIMETER SYSTEM
The Care Trak Sentry Perimeter System is a wandering patient system designed to prevent individuals with Alzheimer's Disease or cognitive, neurological, and balance disabilities from entering or exiting a specific area. The system features a monitoring unit with controls to adjust the range of the invisible perimeter, a Care Trak wrist transmitter, and the Care Trak Mobile Locator (see separate entries). The system establishes an invisible circular boundary with a radius of 50 feet to 300 feet, depending on weather and environmental conditions, around the monitoring unit. As long as the individual wearing a wrist transmitter remains within the monitored area, nothing happens. If he or she moves outside of the invisible boundary, an alarm sounds. This unit is portable, and has no buried wires. POWER: This system operates on standard household electrical current. When electrical current is not available, the system can be operated on AAA batteries for approximately 5 hours.
CARE TRAK WRIST TRANSMITTER
The Care Trak Wrist Transmitter is a wireless signal transmitter designed for use by caregivers of individuals with Alzheimer's Disease or cognitive, neurological, or mobility disabilities in a clinical setting. This portable device is worn on the wrist or ankle. The transmitter, which is water resistant, puts out a silent constantly pulsating radio signal. The unit consists of three components - the transmitter, a plastic transmitter case, and a band that attaches to the case. Three types of bands are available: vinyl and woven nylon for single use and a heavy duty fabric band for multiple use. The Care Trak Wrist Transmitter can be used when a caregiver, law enforcement officer or emergency rescue personnel have the Care Trak Mobile Locator (see separate entry). Care Trak registers the frequency number of the transmitter with the appropriate agency. When an individual becomes lost, police or medical personnel can locate him or her. It has a range of up to 1 mile. In addition to the wrist transmitter, Care Trak provides a transmitter tester and emergency phone number stickers. A new battery and tamper-resistant band are also sent to the user of the transmitter on a monthly basis. POWER: Uses batteries. WEIGHT: Transmitter weighs 1 ounce.
