Our journey initially involved the development of an Android application tailored for individuals with dementia. However, due to the MVP’s excellent reception in the USA market, the development continued. From the initial Android application designed as an aid for dementia patients, it evolved into a platform serving various individuals with special needs (dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, blind and visually impaired individuals, as well as regular seniors requiring a certain level of control and care from family or professional caregivers).
We also created a portal for caregivers, streamlining their roles in supporting not only dementia patients but also all the aforementioned groups of seniors. As the project evolved, we further expanded our scope to create a mobile application for caregivers, available on both Android and iOS platforms. This caregiver application streamlined the management of memory phones for caregivers, simplifying the process and enhancing their ability to provide care. Also, collaboration has been established with Motorola and Google, and a series of integrations of 3rd-party systems and services have been done, significantly contributing to the widespread acceptance of this product. Currently, it is being used by over 30,000 seniors across the USA.
Over time, the memory phone itself underwent significant improvements and upgrades. It introduced new features, such as video calls, a variety of settings to cater to individual needs, and an additional mode tailored for users with low vision and tremors.
