Connected Care & Health solutions provider Tunstall Healthcare is proud to announce the UK launch of an innovative and revolutionary nurse call system, Tunstall Carecom.
Already supporting over 60,000 residents across Europe, the advanced wireless and digital system moves beyond traditional, fixed call-points to a wireless system. Tunstall Carecom has been developed to meet the demands of modern care delivery and support residential and nursing care homes. The wireless and digital technology enables care to be more efficient and responsive, and allows for straightforward, non-obtrusive installation.
Care home residents are offered a high degree of security and freedom with receivers placed around the building and locatability beacons placed at strategic locations, which interact with smart pendants. These products allow users to raise alarm calls but also offer benefits including location reporting, cancel at source, access control and geofencing. The system also supports numerous telecare integrations and sensors, including wearable devices and offers automatic alarms, along with early detection of changes in the behaviour of residents and solutions tailored for individual needs.
Working across a number of devices, including mobile phones, carers are able to manage the system from anywhere at any time, securing rapid responses and enabling person-centred care delivery. An intelligent workflow algorithm within the mobile application works to create a more effective care delivery team whilst the customisable reporting platform supports management in making better informed, data-driven decisions.
Gavin Bashar, UK & Ireland Managing Director at Tunstall Healthcare, commented: “As our population ages and pressures increase on over 10,000 residential nursing care homes in the UK, we need to understand the key role technology has to play. Products like Tunstall Carecom, which moves away from the traditional one-size-fits-all approach, offers a modular and customisable solution, enabling nursing care homes and carers to manage challenges and deliver effective, high quality and person-centred care.”
Carecom takes a new approach to nurse call systems for residential and nursing care homes. It uses wireless and digital technology to enable care to be tailored to the individual, ensuring the delivery of care is more efficient, flexible and responsive.
