Pioneering Device Helps Parents of Children With Autism
VIVACOM and I Can Too support the product’s promotion  

About 1 in 68 children has been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) according to statistics. Autism is the fastest growing developmental disability.

However, an innovative high-tech solution provides a reliable protection of children with autism and safety for their families. A technological innovation worldwide, the device was created by the EuroPATC startup. It was developed by Dragoslav Radoičić, founder and developer who is also the father of an 11-year-old with autism.

CAPPLO is an electronic device wearable equipped with multiple sensors that monitor location, body positioning, motion (including convulsions and seizures), or contact with water. The device operates on the basis of an advanced software programme and a web-based cloud platform. It sends signals that parents monitor on their mobile device, phone, laptop or tablet. The device registers any change in the child's environment and status sending the info to the parent or guardian thus providing reliable safety for children with autism, greater security for their families while also building a community. The web-based platform saves all data, every day.

Other devices for children with autism (watches, sneakers, bracelets) have sensors that are placed directly on the skin which is a problem for hypersensitive children. They also lack a supporting web platform for sharing ideas and practices.

The invention will go on a trial period in Bulgaria. Thanks to support from VIVACOM 30 Bulgarian families with children with autism will be able to try it out for free in the next 6 months. After the trial period Bulgaria will be the first country where the innovation will be released in December 2016. It will be available from I CAN TOO foundation at a price of approximately EUR 200 and a monthly fee of some EUR15.
