Technology enabled aids

A range of equipment that can help you live in your own home safely.

Most of these aids are designed to help you live independently, but some equipment can alert a carer if you have a problem.

Types of electronic aids

  • Magi-plug stops the bath overflowing
  • Memo-Minder helps forgetful people by providing reminders when you walk past
  • Easy 5 Silver Phone is a simple mobile phone with only seven buttons
  • Bed occupancy sensor switches on a light when you get out of bed
  • PivoTell is a programmable automatic pill dispenser

You can see the complete list of electronic aids in our Bristol assistive technology and telecare equipment guide (pdf, 426 KB) (opens new window).
