When the average customer thinks about gadgets for seniors, they mostly imagine hearing aids and motorised wheelchairs. Although most devices used for (and by) the elderly help take care about mobility issues, not everything is about movement.
Helping to Remember
With more and more people striving to stay active for as long as possible, gadgets for seniors are a growing market. The demand is high. Supply? Well… It depends on what you’re looking for.
Staying connected and organised is very important for mental health at any age. When the memory is no longer as sharp as before, people seek solutions.
Pen and paper.
But when you really start looking, things can get incredibly high-tech.
Wearable technology is an unexpected source of help for the elderly, but it makes sense.
Unlike many voice assistants (Alexa), wearables are not confined to one room. They are not confined to a phone either. Besides, a wearable doesn’t require any complex smart home setup. It’s simple and effective.
A wearable that helps remember daily tasks can be a life changer.
Better Than Sticky Notes
The most helpful gadgets for seniors, we have learned, address their needs quickly.
We have designed a wearable recorder with a single large button. The recorder is called Senstone Scripter and captures audio while automatically transcribing it into text.
Senstone Scripter was made for care takers and seniors alike. Whether you take care of the elderly or looking to compensate for your own memory problems, this wearable is just what you need.
- audio recording and speech-to-text transcription
- hands-free design (clip it to your collar or wear it around your neck)
- can take long recordings (1 hour+)
- great battery life
By the way, those seniors who experience problems with coordination – tremor, shaky hands – are going to love our wearable recorder. Unlike the phone, it has only one large button, which you don’t even have to look at.
Scripter works in tandem with its dedicated app. Your recordings are stored in the cloud and processed by artificial intelligence. It sorts them, places the commas where appropriate. You can easily share notes (both text and audio) through other apps like Gmail or just by copy and pasting them.
Other facts about our wearable you might find interesting:
- transcription support for 19 languages
- no subscription plan; you buy it – it’s yours
- can work offline
