AngelSense

Company

Exclusively developed for children with special needs, AngelSense produced the first and only GPS and voice monitoring solution. From its start in 2014, the company maintains its mission to provide a better quality of life to children with special needs and their parents—from protection to improving care for the children, ultimately bringing relief and repose to their parents.
 

Technology/Product

AngelSense allows parents of children with special needs to better monitor their children’s safety throughout the day, specifically when the child is not in the parent’s presence. Based on GPS, advanced analytics, and patent-pending technology that enables automated geo-fencing, arrival and departure detection, and daily schedule creation, the AngelSense solution provides parents with constant knowledge of their child’s safety and whereabouts.
The product includes the following unique features:

  • 24-hour day view of the child’s activity in an easy-to-read diary format
  • Immediate SMS notifications if there are any unusual car stops or location changes
  • Proven “Wandering Child” solution that helps to find a lost child
  • Wearable, and complete with accessories designed for children with special needs
  • “Listen-in” option, where a parent can observe the child and ensure that he or she is safe

Additionally, AngelSense constructed a call center that is operated by other parents of special needs children, who are also expert AngelSense users. This call center allows parents to return to work in a part time, work-from-home manner, and furthermore, to provide assistance and support to other parents of special needs children.
 

Social Impact

Studies reveal that over 50% of children with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) will wander or bolt to unsafe environments throughout their life. Tragically, wandering-related incidents that lead to drowning, prolonged exposure causing dehydration or hypothermia, traffic accidents, and falls remain among the top causes of death within the ASD population. Additionally, studies reveal that every special needs child will experience mistreatment at least once by the time they are 17. As children with special needs are often nonverbal, cannot communicate and ask for help, and often times do not even recognize that they need help, they encounter many dangerous situations. AngelSense allows parents to ensure their child is safe and well taken care of, and in return gain back some peace of mind.
