Ethel is an innovative touchscreen tablet that allows families and carers to stay in touch with their elderly loved one, via use of an ‘always-on’, extra-large touchscreen tablet. The tablet has a simple to use interface, specifically designed for those unfamiliar with technology that allows an older person or a person living with disabilities to contact a pre-set list of contacts like family members, a carer or doctor simply by tapping the screen. Ethel also allows additional functionality such as medication reminders, when to do exercises, etc. and can also send instant EMAIL alerts or phone notifications to family or carers if a user fails to respond to medication prompts.
