Sensory impairment solutions for telecare systems
Sensory impairment solutions support both visually and hearing impaired users to live safely at home.
They include devices such as vibrating pagers, sounders and flashing beacons to ensure the user or carer is alerted when an alarm call is raised via the Lifeline home unit or other Tunstall telecare enabled system. This provides added reassurance and protection to the user both during the day and at night.
Technology to improve quality of life.
Technology can make a difference to people with all kinds of abilities. From managing risks such as fires or falling, to aiding communication and helping to deliver greater privacy or dignity, technology can enable people to have more control over the way they live their lives.
With public sector funding under increasing pressure, it is more important than ever that we realise the potential of enabling technologies to make a significant and positive difference to the lives of people with disabilities, and help our health, housing and social care systems to support their needs effectively.
