CHICAGO, January 13th, 2022 – CareBand, a Third Wave company, and CalChip Connect today announced a partnership for global distribution and fulfillment for CareBand’s personal health and safety solutions. These solutions combine the LoRaWAN® standard with indoor and outdoor location tracking, gesture recognition, i.e., falls and changes in condition alerts.
“Careband’s technology and product feature stack, along with their focus on a phenomenal customer experience, make this partnership a wonderful synergy, and will help scale the benefits to customers all over the US,” said TJ Rancour, President and Co-Founder, CalChip Connect.
CareBand was started to help people living with dementia stay safe and to provide peace of mind to their families. Since its inception in 2016, the company has expanded to offer solutions in senior living, hospitals, hospitality, and education markets.
“Being a former senior living facility executive, I am personally thrilled to see this partnership between CareBand and CalChip Connect,” said Donna Moore, CEO and chairwoman of the LoRa Alliance®. “Together, the companies will rapidly scale access to personal health and safety monitoring applications and this partnership is a fantastic example of how LoRaWAN® is used to improve lives globally. The fact that these advances result from a collaboration between LoRa Alliance® members shows the tremendous value of membership and how joining the Alliance can help move businesses forward.”
The company previously announced a partnership with Helium to leverage the public network (“The People’s Network”) and allow CareBand customers to stay safe wherever they are.
“The People’s Network powered by the Helium blockchain and HNT has grown beyond everyone’s expectations. The coverage provided enables incredible applications such as CareBand. Finding loved ones who may get lost is just the beginning of solving many problems with an open and affordable network for IoT,” said Helium COO, Frank Mong.
CalChip Connect is offering CareBand 4 Demo Kits for system integrators and corporations exploring LoRaWAN, and consultants who are looking for a wide range of functionality for the solution. For information on the demo kit: https://www.calchipconnect.com/products/careband-4-demo-kit
