Medequip Assistive Technology, the UK’s leading community equipment services provider, is to extend its Medequip Connect service with a new pilot across the Carlisle area.
Alongside personal care alarms, equipment and support, Medequip Connect will be providing a 24 hour Emergency Response service developed to provide total protection for elderly and vulnerable users in Carlisle.
Medequip has made significant investments in its digital platform to enable the company to support some of the most sophisticated equipment now on the market. The new responder service supplements this to provide peace of mind for families and carers, knowing assistance is available 24 hours a day at the touch of a button.
Medequip Connect offers flexible solutions which can be tailored to individual requirements. These range from simple analogue base units connecting to a telephone line with pendant call button and link to a 24/7 monitoring centre, through to more sophisticated digital devices, including automatic fall detection systems and voice activated alarms that continue to operate even during power outages. The Emergency Response service is designed to provide end to end support.
The company will be assessing responses and requirements with a view to rolling out the service in other areas of the UK over the next 12 months.
