If you have an elderly loved one that has mobility issues or dementia (with a tendency to get lost), the SOS-COM4 is the device you need. This watch either allows your loved one to communicate you in case of an emergency by simply pushing the SOS or if your loved one has dementia or Alzheimer’s disease and tends to wander, the tracking function makes it possible to locate them.
This product is an all-in-one mobile SOS locator + communicator and stat reader that comes in a handy watch format. A personal mobile system that allows you to be geo-located at any time and place, to communicate and make calls (2 numbers pre-installed), or to push the emergency button when needed.
The integrated stat reader can check your heart-rate, blood pressure, body temperature and saturation levels with the easy- to-use smart phone application. Stats can also be reviewed remotely by a third party who has been granted access. i.e. family member, carer, nurse, doctor etc.
The geo-fence option allows a controlled perimeter which can be pre-installed. Whenever the wearer breaks the pre-set perimeter i.e. 100m from home, an alarm message will be sent to the administrator.
The SOS-COM4 is water resistant (IP67) and can be worn in the shower.
How does the geo-location work?
It incorporates three location technologies: GPS (or satellites) that allows a more exact location when the device is “outdoors” and LBS/AGPS location (using 2G-3G-4G GSM radio antennas) as well as WIFI that allows a more approximate location, when you are inside a building, or the GPS signal is not available.

How do you communicate with this device?
The SOS-COM4 incorporates a slot to insert a mobile SIM card. It will connect to any 2G-3G-4G network that is available.
There are 2 different buttons that you can pre-set any chosen contact person’s telephone number or emergency service number.
You also have the emergency SOS button that can be activated, and which will not only call the programmed number but will also send a google-maps localisation through SMS to that person/emergency service. This makes it easy to locate the wearer either indoors or outdoors.
Voice messages can be recorded and sent by pushing the mic icon button.
The watch also allows a live two-way communication with the following functionality:
-Push to talk: The wearer can be called and can answer the call by pushing the mic icon button and can continue to talk as if talking on a mobile phone.
-Automatically: This pre-selected function enables the caller to make direct contact with the watch without the wearer having to push any buttons. Handy when the wearer is suspected to be in a distressed or compromised situation and direct contact is needed.

All-in-one mobile SOS locator + communicator and stat reader
A healthy diet is very important for good wound healing. Unhealthy food is counterproductive and disrupts healing. With a wound you use extra energy (calories), protein and sometimes extra vitamins and minerals. The body uses these substances to heal the wound. You also sometimes lose a lot of fluid through the exudate (fluid a wound can produce). To stimulate healing, you can compensate for these losses through your diet.
Which nutrients are important in wound healing?
When you have a wound it is important to get enough proteins. Proteins ensure the development of new tissue. High-protein foods include meat, chicken, egg, and dairy products.
Several vitamins (A, B, C and E) are important in wound healing. A lack of a single vitamin can delay healing. Therefore, eat healthy and varied and stick to the daily recommended amounts, with alternating meat, fish and chicken and lots of vegetables and fruit.
Zinc and iron, among others, are essential minerals for wound healing. Zinc plays a role in wound healing. Iron is important for, among other things, the oxygen supply to the wound. Zinc is obtained from protein-rich foods. Iron can be found in spinach, whole-wheat bread and whole-wheat pasta.
Healing a wound requires a lot of energy. Energy that you must replenish with a well-balanced diet.
A good fluid intake and balance is good for wound healing. Drink at least 1.5 liters of fluids to keep your body in good shape (unless your doctor prescribes otherwise).
Home Nurse offers PCR-test, Antigen-tests, and serology check-up, all taken in the comfort of your own home or hotel room.
Whether you need a test to be able to go on holiday/ go back home, feel sick and want a peace of mind, or you just want a peace of mind after a high risk contact, our nurses will come to you and test you.
We work with a reputable lab, and will be able to provide you with fit-to-fly certificates. We work from Mondays-Saturdays.
We offer following tests:
-PCR-test: If the test is taken before 11h30, you will have the certificate by the end of the afternoon on the same day. If taken in the afternoon you will have the results by the next day, noon. If you are in need of a quick solution, for a fast processing premium we can have your sample analysed within 2 hours. The swabs we use are very flexible so taking the sample doesn’t cause you too much discomfort. We will introduce the swab either in your throat or nose.
-Antigen-test: This is a quick test, and you will have your certificate within 3 hours.
-Serology: Antibody or serology tests look for antibodies in your blood that fight the virus that causes COVID-19.
*If you haven’t been vaccinated, the lab will check your blood on antibodies caused by COVID-19 infection. This lab test will take up to 2 days.
*If you have been vaccinated, the lab will check the antibodies created by the vaccine, but also if antibodies have developed following a COVID-19 infection. This lab test will take up to 3 days.
You would be condisdered high risk and therefore certainly in need of a flu jab if you are over 65 years of age or if you suffer from chronic illness (ie diabetes, chronic kidney disease) regardless of age, or if you have cardiovascular or pulmonary issues (ie asthma). You would be classified in the moderate group if you have a chronic illness, or if you are pregnant, or if you are taking aspirin on a long term basis.
If you live with a person in one of the above risk groups it is also advised to get vaccinated.
How does a flu vaccine work?
A flu vaccine causes antibodies to develop in the body approximately 2 weeks after vaccination. These antibodies provide protection against infection of circulating influenza viruses. Available influenza vaccines include, quadrivalent inactivated influenza vaccine. Seasonal flu vaccines are designed to protect against the influenza viruses that research indicates will be most common during the upcoming season.
Home Nurse can provide a flu jab in the comfort of your own home. Call us to make an appointment. +34 604 401 249
