COVID-19

How to mitigate

COVID Lockdown

Will you commit to protecting your loved ones, clients or residents?

The Konnekt Videophone is a vital component to block COVID-19 and avoid mental health collapse

  • Replace risky family visits with 100% safe video calling
  • Prevent virus transmission from cordless and mobile phones, iPads and portable tablets
  • Reduce social isolation and halve* depression risk via increased face-to-face social engagement [*Teo 2019]

Face masks are scary: They hide facial expressions, make friends and carers unrecognizable, and prevent lip-reading.

What are your loved ones, clients or residents worth?

Coronavirus Death Rate by Age

In Italy, the fatality rate from Coronavirus was 7%

You, personally, are likely to survive. Those over 80 are extremely vulnerable.

Patients over 80 have a 15% chance of dying.

Will you be a leader? Or will you, your family, or your organization, roll the dice and hope?

Are you adhering to Health Authority Guidance?

Don’t be accused of negligence. For infection control:

CDC already recommends the use of alternative mechanisms for patient and visitor interactions such as video-call applications.

  • Many Homes were ahead of the March 10 advice and have already implemented visitor restrictions.
  • Caring families have taken action and installed a videophone to help prevent disease spread and mental health decline.
Visual Signs of Health

Visual signs of wellness

  • Carers, family: Check for signs of stress and illness
  • Nurses understand the visual indicators of health and hygiene
  • Lack of attention to grooming and personal care are warning signs for declining mental health

How will you keep an eye on your loved one, if you cannot visit weekly?
