Even before the pandemic, there was increased recognition of the importance of prevention and self-management. Now the ability to keep people safe in their homes with assistive technology this winter will be essential.
Enabling you to provide a more ‘proactive’ service this winter: ARMED’s wearable technology and analytics, provides a powerful remote monitoring solution. Health markers are measured from a person’s own home and delivered to a range of care professionals. It can send urgent alerts to a circle of support if there is a sudden decrease in activity or change in data trends.
This type of remote monitoring is ideal for spotting deterioration that might lead to an incident requiring more intensive assistance, or a hospital stay, enabling you to put the required support in place before this occurs.
To make ARMED* easier to implement during COVID-19 challenges it has been transformed to enable remote deployment with configuration in advance to allow a Service User to simply ‘wear and go’. You can find out more about the simple steps to remotely rolling out 'ARMED in a Box' here.
