RESTON, Virginia, January 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The adams & weber GmbH company, an experienced IT-system house in the Rhine-Mosel region, collaborated with  Ekahau, the worldwide leader in Real-Time Location Systems (RTLS), to install a WLAN-based locating and emergency call system at Josef-Ecker-Stift, a senior-citizens home and nursing facility in Neuwied, Germany.

He opted for Ekahau's RTLS Real-time Location System. Ekahau collaborated with the adams & weber GmbH to install the emergency-call and location system at Josef-Ecker-Stift toward the end of 2012.

The system monitors the movements of the home's residents and indicates the direction in which each person is heading. It also monitors residents with limited mobility, for example, people who rely on walkers. The system locates the Ekahau wristband tags which the residents wear 24-hours a day, and continually notifies the care staff of each resident's momentary location. This makes the caregivers' work easier because it
