Telenor Connexion customer LOSTnFOUND has been recognized in the Annual Awards Program for guard2me©, a digital aid for sufferers of dementia.
Millions of people around the world every year are diagnosed with Alzheimer’s, which is characterized by dementia. Getting lost is a common problem for people with the disease because their memory is impaired and they easily get confused and wander off.
The guard2me© tracking device from LOSTnFOUND has been developed to improve the lives and conditions for sufferers of Alzheimer’s and dementia. The device, a watch worn around the patient’s wrist, tracks the location of the patient at all times, allowing care providers and family members to locate a patient who is lost or in an emergency situation.
The connected solution is composed of three main components; a guard2me©-watch, an embedded SIM-card and service, and the guard2me© web portal and app for smartphones.
By partnering with Telenor Connexion LOSTnFOUND could take advantage of Telenor’s extensive experience of provding connected business solutions as well as an outstanding multi-operator agreement, which allows the guard2me© to operate seamlessly in 145 countries.

It is also an important recognition of the great need for connected solutions to help medical providers monitor patients remotely and respond faster to emergencies”, says, Per Simonsen, CEO of Telenor Connexion.
