Because nobody should fear getting lost
The School of Dementia
The School of Dementia has easy to understand knowledge about dementia, so you can make the right decisions about your situation.
Focus on dementia
Location systems for people with dementia utilise different technologies and work in different ways. Here you can see a summary.
Early signs of Alzheimer’s and other dementia disorders most often show up as changes in behaviour, despite many people believing that the memory is affected first.
The right aids may help memory or provide reassurance for people with dementia and their relatives – for example location systems and electronic calendars.
Dementia is an umbrella term for diseases that give dementia symptoms. Read about the various diseases, prevention and other complications.
Nobody should fear getting lost
According to the Danish Dementia Research Centre, half of all people with dementia wander and become lost during their illness.
We should not accept this.
Otiom is a revolutionary location system developed in Denmark which prevents people with dementia from wandering. The solution has been developed together with relatives, care assistants and people with dementia – so it takes all aspects into account.
Otiom is both developed and made in Denmark.
The Otiom location system
At Otiom, our focal point is “freedom”. Both for people with dementia and their relatives. Freedom to do what they want.
With Otiom, you can create so-called safety zones where the person with dementia can safely stay. If that person leaves the chosen zone, their relatives receive a text message alert and the Otiom app shows them the person’s location, so they can help immediately.
Otiom is not a surveillance device and only localises when the safety zone is exceeded.
Otiom has enough power for a whole month, will withstand machine washing and is completely free of cables and confusing buttons.
A great solutionOtiom is a great solution that both nursing homes and any family member can benefit from. This is very important to us.

Simple and brilliantThe Otiom product for use in dementia is both simple and brilliant. In addition to long battery life, etc., I can adjust the geographical area where the person with dementia moves as the disease worsens.

Sense of securityIt gives a sense of security to know that my wife can keep track of me. And the Otiom-chip neither weighs much, nor take up much room, so it is easy to carry around with me.

I can relaxOtiom gives me security. I know I will receive an alarm if my husband moves away from our home or local area, and that I can change Otioms safety level to suit our individual needs.
