WELCOME TO LOK8u
If your loved one has a cognitive disorder such as Alzheimer’s or Autism they will wander.
LOK8u’s products help you, the parent or carer, stop wandering becoming a stressful and often life threatening event.
The good news is that we are all living longer. However, old age brings with it the challenges of alzheimer’s, 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 alzheimer’s 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.
Autism is being more widely diagnosed. One of the impacts of the sensory sensitivity associated with Autism is wandering. Like wandering in the elderly, children with Autism, will wander at any time of the day or night. Freedom4kids is a technology solution from LOK8u that empowers parents to provide an additional level of security at home and school without having to create a fortress of locked doors and windows and growing a second set of eyes in the back of your head.

“My son is in a residential treatment facility for children with behavioral 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 facilty. With\ this watch, he has been able to go outside,
The first one happened in Anoka County 1-31-2014
“My Son did not come home on the bus. We called the school and the bus company, both stated he was dropped off at home.
The Freedom web portal allowed us to locate him traveling on the bus 10 miles away. We contacted the school and busing company giving the street he was traveling on. The school and the bus company now stated that he was on the bus and would be returned home. Thanks Project LifeSaver “
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
