As I was discussing my Fourth of July plans with a co-worker, she told me that she was going to attend the funeral of her uncle who had been an Alzheimer's patient. The conversation reminded me of Vinnie Mirchandani’s recent post on Wearable Devices in which one of the devices he highlights is specifically meant for Alzheimer's patients.
Having blogged about wearable devices and flexible displays both from my perspective and my future grandson's perspective, I read Vinnie's post with great interest. He has carefully assimilated a healthy -- yes, literally, healthy -- mix of wearables for monitoring everything from medical issues to child safety. The parties benefiting from these devices cover the spectrum from infants through senior citizens.
