The good news is that we are all living longer. However, old age brings with it the challenges of dementia, and increasing care demands from failing health. The solution need not be institutional or hospital care; Lok8u’s Freedom device presents families with choices to keep the family together at home if healthcare or dementia becomes an issue.
Modern society has changed over a generation with more single parent families, both parents working and a more mobile family unit. Parental peace of mind is often challenged with balancing the needs of a child to explore and grow up with keeping them safe. This is even more challenging if your child has special needs. LOK8U can help you manage these challenges with its technology
Our flagship product Freedom is one of the world’s first and smallest wandering prevention and emergency alert devices. Aimed at independent elderly people and vulnerable adults, Freedom allows for independent living whilst leaving you free of concern when it comes to the safety of your loved ones or employees.
Lok8u’s multi use Freedom solution allows for multiple watches to communicate with multiple base stations. This unique facility allows us to protect an entire care home, ALF, or hospital to keep all residents safe.

Our child-safety product Freedom uses state-of-the-art positioning technologies to help you locate them when out and about. The unique nature of this product gives your child the freedom to play, and you the knowledge they’re never far away.
These GPS locators have been designed with simplicity and ease of use in mind, making them accessible from home, the office or abroad – as long as you have access to a computer or mobile phone.

REVIEWS & TESTIMONIALS
My name I Daniel, my father-in-law was diagnosed with Dementia about 4 years ago, the main concern my wife and I had was the fact that he could wander anytime out of the house and something could happen to him. Last summer I found out about the LOK8U Freedom in Amazon, and after doing some digging we decided to give it a try.
$100 for the device and $50 a month aren’t enough money to pay for the peace of mind we currently have. We use the RF option when he wants to go out and do some gardening up front, just having that little device help us to keep him in a safe range. You have three options as far as distance goes, of course the device’s battery will dry up faster depending of which option is used, but overall both devices have been working great.
I also tested the online tracking option and it works great, in the case of an emergency you can have a lock in the person’s location every two minutes with great accuracy. That’s probably the best feature, knowing that if he wanders, he could be located in a couple of minutes.
The watch seems to be sturdy, it has a little pin lock that keeps the watch on place unless you use the little tool that comes with the set to unlock it. Great feature considering that any other device could be left or dropped anywhere by a Dementia patient
Very happy with the product, as well as the customer service. Any time I had questions about billing or use of the hardware I didn’t have issues getting fast and helpful answers through the phone or via Facebook/e-mail.
Thanks Robin, and thanks Lok8u Freedom.
“My son is in a residential treatment facility for children with behavioural and emotional disorders, and he is what they call a “runner”. We really want him to be outside with the other kids playing, but we didn’t feel safe without him having the Freedom Watch to help staff locate him quickly to get him returned to the facility. With this watch, he has been able to go outside, burn off energy, and have the freedom – along the safety – that we want for him.”
“The Freedom Watch allowed my son to be located very quickly when he ran away while at the park. He was upset, and he runs when he gets upset. This has allowed us the peace of mind to take him on outings without all the worry if he does choose to run.”
“The staff at my son’s residential facility was able to locate my son when he ran away from them and used a bike to get even farther away this last time. He was not injured, and I am happy to say that he is safe again!”

I know the worries that go with caring for a loved one that wanders. The Freedom Watch can give peace of mind and keep your loved ones safe.
I had the opportunity to see a demo on this product and its feature set is amazing. This will make watching my grandmother with Alzheimer’s so much easier for me. Thank you to whomever developed this. You are a godsend.This will make watching my grandmother with Alzheimer’s so much easier for me. Thank you to whomever developed this. You are a godsend.

I was looking for something for my husband who has Lewy Body Dementia. He has not wandered, but I have read that 60% of people with dementia do wander. I love the fact that the watch can be locked onto his wrist so that he can’t remove it. There is a special tool that you need to use that comes with the watch. I like the fact that if the alarm goes off showing that he has gone beyond the boundaries set, an email will be sent to you, alerting you. You then go to the website and enter your user name and password and will be able to see where your loved one is located. I have a smart phone, so even if I am out and not near my computer, I will be able to access the website. I also like the fact that the alarm does not get sent to emergency personal. If it is a true emergency, you will call them yourself. It saves you from having to call them if you are testing the watch or showing someone how it works. The watch also has a panic button on it so if the wearer is confused, they can press it and you will be alerted. The customer service is OUTSTANDING! Thanks Robin.
I have a 12yo son with learning disability’s and he wanted to start going to the local park with his friends so I purchased the freedom watch so that he had a little safety net if anything went wrong. I have to say its the best decision I ever made as now I can log into the secure website and check that he is where he says he is and he has the panic button if he gets into any difficulties.
Great product does exactly what they say! The peace of mind this gives us knowing that my Dad who has Alz has a 24 watch guard on his wrist. Ez web and text interface.
