NTT docomo - App for supporting seniors and their family

NTT docomo released a new free smartphone application that could be very helpful for seniors and their family members called Tsunagari Hotto Support. Tsunagari means connection, and Hotto means relief in Japanese.

The application is offered to those who have NTT docomo's RakuRaku Smartphone series which is a simple smartphone series designed for elderly users. If a senior person has a RakuRaku Smartphone that has the Tsunagari Hotto Support app installed, his smartphone usage situation, such as number of steps walked, the presence or absence of unlocking the smartphone screen, and the remaining battery level, will be sent in notices to assigned family members.

The senior person by himself can add his daily health condition (Good, Not bad, and Bad) in the application and let his family know.

Usually the family members get the notice once a day at the registered time, however, when the senior's number of steps exceeds a predetermined number or the smartphone's remaining battery lowers more than a certain amount, they will receive an urgent notice and will be instantantly alerted that something wrong is happening.
