docomo-elderly-monitorNTT Docomo Inc. is said to begin offering their “Tsunagari Hot Support” application software, where it will target the elderly as well as their families, and this particular app has already arrived on smartphones from the company on March 25. This particular software would now receive a new function known as “Tsunagari Hot Support”, where this particular service is capable of notifying registered people of how the phone is used over e-mail whenever the (elderly) user uses his or her phone.

Take for example, when one is outside the home. This would allow specific data such as the total number of steps taken, the number of times that the “screen lock” had been activated or deactivated, the remaining battery level, among others, are transmitted.

This is not exactly new to the folks over at NTT Docomo, as they have been offering this particular service for those who use the “Rakuraku Phone Basic 3″ mobile phone that targets the elderly, with a service fee of ¥105 (around $1.03) each month. We are pleased to note that NTT Docomo will offer this particular service for free for those who use the “Rakuraku Smartphone”.

Smartphones users on NTT Docomo can enjoy this function as well as input their daily health condition to the handset, as it transmits such data to registered people. This allows one to keep track of daily health conditions, a history of one’s health, among others.
