Tunstall, a leading provider of technology to assist independent living, is celebrating its diamond anniversary this year, as it turns 60.
The firm claims to be the first to develop alarm systems for older people and has remained at the forefront of developments such as telecare and telehealth.
The company says the anniversary marks a new era in the way it works with customers to transform services, becoming more integrated, proactive, and cost-effective using technology as an enabler.
Tunstall’s digital connected healthcare eco system, using cloud-based technology, means that all elements of connected healthcare can link together, it said.
Service users, the services and devices that protect and support them, the formal and informal carers who look after them, and the social care, health and housing providers can all be connected to one another in real time, all the time. This is designed to enable significant enhancements in the quality of care and support provided in the home.
David McKinney, managing director, commented: “This anniversary gives us a unique opportunity to both celebrate our heritage and look forward to future innovations. The last sixty years have seen Tunstall achieve many industry firsts, and as digital opportunities accelerate the speed of change, we will see many more.
“I would like to thank our customers for their support so far and we look forward to working in partnership with them in the future to create more ground-breaking, life-changing solutions.”
