What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

SmartCare has made a name for itself in the Senior Care Community in the way of nursing home/ assisted living care. We are now working to have At Home Kits that cater to individual needs! All products are in development and we hope to use this funding to finish development and support the final production and packaging! An At Home Kit catered to the individual will revolutionize the way that seniors and family members think about home care and independence! 

The hardware and software work together in wonderful harmony! When one of the sensors is triggered, it sends an alert to the preferred alert device (typically a cell phone through text message) letting the party know that something has taken place. An example being, when someone lays down on a bed with the bed pad installed, the alerted party will receive a text message that the bed is occupied. This applies to the bed pad and motion sensors. The outlet covering light is triggered by motion and created a lighted path along the floor to prevent falls. Go on over to the gallery to check out the demonstration videos!

Risks and challenges

Our main challenge is developing the kit at such a low price range for high end technology. Because all prototypes are in the development phases and we intend to order over 100 in quantity, we believe that the kit can be developed, packaged and delivered at the promised price point
