Medical Intelligence, a Canadian company, has developed a bracelet designed to help Alzheimer's patients by notifying family members or other people if the wearer wanders outside a pre-defined "secure zone." The Columba is monitored via Assisted GPS and has a GSM/GPRS transmitter/receiver with a SIM card for voice and data. The bracelet will be put in use for the first time in Paris this summer and should be available to the public by the end of the year.
