Comarch Italia and WINDTRE have confirmed their collaboration with a view to improving the quality of life and safety of older and disabled patients. The companies launched on the Italian market Comarch ConTe, a smart wristband with an integrated WINDTRE SIM card, which allows caregivers to monitor the health of fragile patients remotely and always stay a phone call away from them.
“One of WINDTRE’s objectives is to stay close to people with an inclusive technology that can simplify their everyday life”, says Stefano Fioravanzo, Head of B2C New Business, Security, Advertising & Partnership at WINDTRE. “We are therefore delighted to confirm our collaboration with Comarch Italia. Our goal is to provide fragile patients and their caregivers with additional support through WINDTRE’s connectivity, combined with an easy-to-use, intuitive smart device”.
“This is an important milestone for us”, adds Kamila Niekraszewicz, Country Manager at Comarch Italia. “We received overwhelmingly positive feedback from the healthcare providers who chose our wristbands for their patients. To be able to reach caregivers and patients directly is a value add for us, and we are proud to do this in partnership with WINDTRE”.
Comarch ConTe regularly measures the wearer’s heartbeat and is equipped with a fall sensor and GPS, allowing the caregiver to monitor, localize and reach the person wearing the wristband. The integrated WINDTRE SIM card allows communication both ways, meaning that calls can be made from and received on the wristband, with no need to use a phone or additional applications.
