Telenor said Alta council is using technology from Telenor Objects and software company Visma to swap all its existing patient security alarms for new ones that can be extended to include fall alarms, door alarms and temperature sensors. This is part of Telenor's and Visma's 'Live longer at home' scheme for elderly people. The local council expects the number of residents over 67 years of age in Alta to rise by 50 percent over the period 2010-2020, and a corresponding rise in the number of people older than 80 in 2020-2030. Alta is integrating its personal alarms with electronic journals for patients of its health and home care departments. The technology can also be used to monitor blood pressure and indicate bed-wetting.
