Optimized Phones for Assisted Living Seniors

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

VTECH logoPhones are an essential part of keeping connected with family and friends. As people age and are struggling to stay in their homes or assisted living, this new phone from VTech can help maintain this psychological lifeline.

The phones are hearing aid compliant, and it is possible to boost the volume of a single call for clarity and level. The unit that we examined featured a clear black and white high contrast display, and enabled adult children to attach photos to speed dial numbers. The company also provides a pendant system that directs phone calls to a number that you have assigned. Using DECT technology, it has a range of 600 ft and provides a speakerphone system and speed dial. Incoming calls can also be answered by the device, and features audio caller ID, allowing screening of calls.

Home Smart Phone Kickstarter Project

HD 360 degree Sound

A CES-2013 Innovation Award Winner from Urban Hello puts the focus on a neglected category: the home telephone. It has been recognized by the IEEE Spectrum as the first product to  recognize HD voice calls.

Urban Hello

Smartphones have replaced many home landline connections – but there have been some compromises along the way in sound quality and the ability to set up a round-table conversation. Incorporating much of the commercial speakerphone technology, this Kickstarter project is compatible with DECT phone systems connected to landline or VoIP unit.

The phone is unusual in that it is being underwritten by a Kickstarter Project
