QR Code-Enabled pendants: A modern safety measure to guide lost people back home

This innovation comes in the form of a QR code-enabled pendant, designed to help those who may get lost reunite with their families.

Mumbai has introduced a remarkable innovation that harnesses technology to assist people facing memory loss or dementia. This innovation comes in the form of a QR code-enabled pendant, designed to help those who may get lost reunite with their families.

Every day, elderly individuals, differently-abled people, senior citizens, and those with dementia encounter challenges as they often forget important information, especially when they leave their homes.

This new solution, developed by a 24-year-old data engineer named Akshay Ridlan, aims to alleviate their struggles and ease the concerns of their families.

Known as “Project Chetna,” this initiative focuses on providing wearable pendants equipped with QR codes for individuals dealing with dementia and medical emergencies. These QR codes can be scanned by anyone who finds the person wearing the pendant, and they provide essential information such as the person’s name, contact details, address, and blood group.

The creator of this pendant, Ridlan, emphasised its importance by saying, “A product like this is much needed and is the need of the hour as it concerns the safety and well-being of those in our society.”

The creators of this QR code pendant have high hopes for their impact, especially for those who may wander away from home due to conditions like Alzheimer’s disease, dementia, schizophrenia, or children with autism.

Dr. Swati Piramal of Piramal Group expressed her support for this new invention, highlighting the relief it brings to the families of individuals with special needs. She noted, “Everybody will suffer from old age; no one is exempt from it. Having something that won’t allow you to forget your home address is nice. The family members, in such times, are already so worried; this provides a sense of relief.”

Additionally, Dr. Swati Piramal believes that these tech-enabled pendants can enhance the safety of children who go to school on their own.

These QR code pendants will be made available throughout India, providing a valuable solution for individuals and their families dealing with memory loss and dementia-related challenges.
