The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2018-05-11T03:06:40Z Reminder Rosie arrives in Australia - Say Hello to Reminder Rosie 2018-05-11T03:06:40Z reminder-rosie-arrives-in-australia-say-hello-to-reminder-rosie SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – 11 May 2018 – Reminder Rosie, the state of the art voice activated talking clock, for blind people, vision impaired, memory and cognitive impaired people, is now available for the first time in Australia from TabTimer Reminders™.   Reminder Rosie is a simple-looking digital alarm clock, embedded with revolutionary speech recognition and cutting-edge technologies, that records up to 25 loud personalised, familiar and comforting voice reminders, and plays them back at a specific time and date, everyday, weekly, monthly or annually.   Rosie is so easy to set up right out of the box.  Just wake up Rosie by saying ‘Hello Reminder Rosie’, say a command such as ‘record reminder’ and follow Rosie’s prompts! A family member, caregiver or user simply records a message, perhaps ‘Mum, It’s time to take two red and one white pill after breakfast’ 8:30am every day. Once the task is accomplished the user either says ‘reminder off’ or touches the clock to turn it off. That's it!     A simple solution to organize your loved ones day without touching any buttons.  Remember meds, appointments, household and personal tasks, birthdays and much more! Reminder Rosie is your personal butler who notifies you, or someone you care for, of tasks without the high cost!   Rosie has already been adopted overseas by many people who are very low tech, have vision impairment, or have significant cognitive decline, including user’s aged over 100.    Gary Rotman, Inventor of Reminder Rosie said “I invented a solution for my 80-year old father who was diagnosed with dementia and often forgot to take his medications and other daily tasks.  He ended up back in the hospital. I tested and tweaked the device over several years and started offering the device to others and Reminder Rosie was born! I had no idea at the time that there were millions of people worldwide that had similar challenges as my father.  High levels of hospital re-admittances, health care costs, avoidable deaths and caregiver stress result from poor medication compliance”.   Managing Director of TabTimer Reminders in Australia Jonathan Allott said “Reminder Rosie is an excellent addition to TabTimer’s range of assistive technology.  Personalised reminders in a loved one’s voice has shown to improve compliance more effectively than most task aids.  We are excited to make Reminder Rosie available in Australia for the first time and hope it will help more people live in the comfort of their own home longer, independently and with dignity”.   Further details about Reminder Rosie, TabTimer™, and their range of reminder devices, designed to help keep people on-time, can be found at www.TabTimer.com.au or call 1300 TAB TIMER (1300 822 846). - ENDS – TabTimer™ – launches new MemRabel 2 Audio Visual Calendar Reminder Clock 2016-04-14T15:13:45Z tabtimer-launches-new-memrabel-2-audio-visual-calendar-reminder-clock SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – 15 April 2016 – The NEW MemRabel 2, the latest audio visual reminder alarm clock, for people living with memory impairment, cognitive impairment, or everyday forgetfulness, is now available in Australia from TabTimer Reminders™.

The clear, easy to read VISO10 clock, is a useful tool for people living with memory impairment, caused by Alzheimer’s, dementia, stroke, or other memory related impairments - as well as a welcome relief for their family and care givers. People with Alzheimer’s, dementia, stroke, or other forms of memory loss, often lose the ability to recall; what day, time of day, month, or what year it is - causing them stress, anxiety and frustrations.  Many large format clocks also abbreviate the day and month, shortening words to three characters (i.e. MON or DEC), subsequently confusing some elderly, or baffling cognitively impaired people.  The VISO10 Clock - now available from TabTimer Reminders - is different!  It uses full words, in large bold letters, with no confusing abbreviations.  The non abbreviated display of DAY, DATE, TIME, MONTH and YEAR are easy to understand, with large bold numerals up to 190mm high.  The battery operated VISO10 also has a choice of 8 different languages, can be desk stand or wall mounted, and can be locked to avoid any unintended time changes.  At a total size of 280mm x 190mm the VISO10 is clear and easy to read, whilst remaining sleek and modern, to fit practically into any environment.  The VISO10 Alzheimer’s Clock is a perfect gift for home, aged care facilities, or the reception area of any health care professional – enabling patients and clients to clearly see the day, date and time - providing a stress free, dementia friendly environment.  It may even alleviate carers’ frustrations who will no longer have to continually repeat the day and time to their loved ones.
