Otiom prevents persons with dementia from getting lost

At the same time, Otiom ensures that if someone wanders, they can be found quickly and safely.


Otiom offers freedom, allowing people with dementia to continue to move about freely without their relatives worrying that they will get lost.

Otiom is an intelligent, Danish-designed tracking tag which protects people with dementia from getting lost from their private homes or nursing homes.

Otiom does not monitor the person continuously; tracking only begins when the individual leaves a predefined area. Moreover, the device can run for a whole month on a single charge.

Otiom was developed in collaboration with relatives, caregivers and people with dementia.

Peace of mind – both for persons with dementia and their relatives

Easy to use with any smartphone

Can run up to one month on a single charge

Sends an alarm and location to your smartphone when the person with dementia strays out of the safety zone

Developed and produced in Denmark

Otiom is the result of Denmark’s largest public-private innovation collaboration. Persons with dementia, relatives, caregivers, associations, municipalities and universities all participated in the collaboration because we wanted to determine, once and for all, what it would take to prevent a person with dementia from wandering.

Otiom was developed entirely from scratch in Denmark. The idea is Danish, the developers are in Denmark and Otiom is being manufactured in Denmark.
