A radio trigger connected to a social alarm allows seniors and vulnerable adults to remain living in their own home for longer, even when conditions change. They can feel safe in the knowledge that help is available at the touch of a button to a 24/7 monitoring centre.
A radio trigger together with a social alarm base unit is a life-saving device. However, some users consider wearing a traditional radio trigger stigmatising, and consequently they do not wear it.
Let us present our newcomer Ellis by Careium – a radio trigger designed to look like jewellery. Ellis is elegant and stylish, destigmatising associations with pendant alarms. Worn around the neck on a stainless-steel chain, it looks more like a black gem. The user is therefore more encouraged to wear their lifesaving radio trigger, even proudly sharing with their peers that they are happy to have a social alarm.
Ellis is built on the same proven technology as our radio trigger Enzo and is a long-range trigger compatible with all Careium’s social alarms. It uses a two-way transceiver that uniquely monitors the connection with the social alarm and provides reassuring confirmation that the alarm has been acknowledged. The device is also waterproof (IP67).
Alarms are often triggered using the thumb. When designing Ellis, we had this in mind. Taking into consideration that the user group might have dexterity issues, the alarm button is placed in a smooth tactile cavity on the back. The magnetic lock on the chain functions as an "anti-strangle" feature and makes it easier and comfortable to put on and remove.

Many seniors live independent lives without wanting to rely on a relative or the health care system. They love to travel, meet friends and family, take walks outside and are determined not to be a burden to their family. Therefore, to be seen as “old” or “helpless” can be very detrimental for that person and to have to accept the help of others, is a big step away from that ind...Read more

We are living longer and an increase in the average lifespan will mean an increase in the number of older people in the population, many of whom will live to a very advanced age. Calculations suggest that the average lifespan in Sweden by 2050 will be 86.2 years for women and 83.6 years for men, although others have suggested that the average lifespan may be even higher. An ageing population creates new demands on society, when other demographic changes are already having knock-on effects on the economy, society, and the medical care sector. Ageing in today’s society also imposes new demands on ou...Read more
Health and social care are facing substantial changes in the form of a growing elderly population and shrinking resources, placing additional demands on the way in which we provide care and support for our older population. Further to this is by 2025 analogue telephone services will be switched off as the UK’s telecoms infrastructure is upgraded to digital connectivity. This shift has major implications for the technology enabled care sector and the 1.7 million people who rely on telecare...Read more
While the pandemic has affected all of us, few have been hit harder than the elderly. As a risk group, they have had to bear the brunt through months of isolation.

It’s time to take action against loneliness, writes Carl-Johan Zetterberg Boudrie, CEO of the technology enabled care compan...Read more

In these times of lockdown, shielding and social distancing, loneliness and isolation can increase. Often the vulnerable groups are hit the hardest, and we do not know for how long the pandemic will last or what the real consequences will be. Although we are living longer and more people are aged 70+, the lack of social contact is a real threat to the wellbeing of seniors. As the UN Secretary Antonio Guterres recently said: “The COVID-19 pandemic is causing untold fear and suffering for older people across the world. Beyond its immediate health impact, the pandemic is putting older people at greater risk of poverty, discrimination and i...Read more
