The smart device is designed to help monitor the proximity of people with Autism and Alzheimer's

People who suffer from Alzheimer’s and Autism need extra care and attention, but it only takes a few seconds for them to wander away without the caregiver’s knowledge. Mettle Studios designed a smart device called the Proximity button that will help caregivers monitor their patients closely, thereby, reducing any risk of danger for the wandering patients.

According to Mettle Studios, 60 percent of patients with dementia and 48 percent of patients with autism wander away. This is a highly surprising percentage, which just proves all the more that monitoring devices will be very helpful when caring for these sick patients.
