ACH Group and South Australian based smartphone watch developer Spacetalk Ltd. have come together to enhance and broaden access to Spacetalk LIFE, a smartphone watch for older Australians.
With features including, SOS alert, GPS locator, 4G phone, and AI fall detection technology available from 31 May, Spacetalk LIFE’s can support older people to live independent healthy and social lives, while providing reassurance and peace of mind to family and friends.
LIFE was initially launched in June 2020. Following the launch, ACH Group and Spacetalk have collaborated to further enhance the watch’s features, including fall detection technology, the ability to integrate with care, and that LIFE meet the requirements for eligible Australians to purchase the device through the Government’s Commonwealth Home Support (CHSP), Home Care (HCP) and NDIS programs.
ACH Group CEO Frank Weits said, “ACH Group recognised that LIFE could fill a gap in the market. Together with its newly incorporated suggested improvements we believe this high quality, stylish smartphone watch will offer peace of mind to older people and their families.
“Spacetalk LIFE is a fantastic example of two industry leaders collaborating to bring new, leading-edge and world-class aged care technology to market.”
