Exciting news! AngelSense won the prestigious 2016 Patient Innovation Award for which it was selected by an Advisory Board of international senior academic leaders and Nobel Prize laureates. The awards were created to recognize patients or caregivers that designed pioneering technologies to help relieve the symptoms of a certain health condition, or to improve the quality of life of those suffering from this condition.

AngelSense GPS Tracker was chosen as a groundbreaking product, as it’s the only solution of its kind designed specifically for children with special needs. AngelSense leverages cutting edge technology to address the unique challenges of the special needs community.

Doron Somer, AngelSense CEO & Co-Founder said: “It was truly inspiring to be in the company of entrepreneurs that created amazing solutions born out of their own experience with chronic health conditions. We feel privileged to have been included in this group of innovators that have made a difference for others despite their own hardships”.

The AngelSense solution is comprised of a GPS tracking device attached to the child’s clothing, and a mobile app for the child’s caregivers. With AngelSense, parents can continuously monitor their child’s whereabouts. This is a vital capability and has proven to save lives, because children with special needs often have a tendency to wander away or elope from a place of safety. AngelSense also features a listen-in capability allowing parents to hear if their child is ok and what’s happening in their surroundings. This can be used to help prevent bullying and mistreatment.

Protecting children with special needs does not end with preventing emergency situations like a wandering incident. Even simple everyday actions like riding the school bus can be extremely challenging. Parents worry about whether their child will get from the bus to class safely or whether they’ll get off at the right stop. AngelSense allows parents to follow their child’s exact travel route on a real-time map and to see if they arrived safely. The bus ride is just one example of the many complex situations parents constantly have to deal with. And that’s another way in which AngelSense makes a huge difference — eliminating the uncertainty and anxiety from day-to-day life in a special needs family.

      Hi Dana – It’s not meant to be submerged in water, but will continue working if it gets wet. We are currently working on a water proof cover and have begun beta testing it.
