Shai Joseph Mishaly, 28, lives in Jerusalem.
Shai served in the Artillery Corps as a platoon commander and was severely injured in a car accident- a month before being released from his service. Shai was on his way to visit his soldiers. He was evacuated in critical condition with severe head and multi-systemic injuries. Today, after a lengthy rehabilitation process in “Tel Hashomer” hospital, Shai suffers from short-term memory loss and weakness in the left side of his body. He is assisted by his parents on a daily basis and is recovering exceptionally well.
The challenge: Monitoring and contact in time of need
Although he is usually with an escort, Shai has found himself several times in situations where he is alone without the ability to contact his family or caregivers. Shai and his family are looking for a solution that he can carry (not a phone), which will allow monitoring of his location, viewing, and listening to his whereabouts. Experiments with existing solutions have shown that they partially or unreliably meet the needs of Shai and his family. They are looking for a solution that will allow them to upgrade or adapt existing products to their needs in a reliable way.
