ARMED, an anti-fall technology from HAS Technology, has been shortlisted for the Tomorrow’s Care Awards.
ARMED (Advanced Risk Modelling for Early Detection) utilises wearable technology that measures data related to frailty and risk of falling.
This assists people with living independently for longer, and allows care workers to intervene before a fall actually takes place, reducing hospital admissions.
This, HAS suggests, results in a 25:1 save-to-spend ratio.
Brian Brown, Director of ARMED at HAS Technology Group commented: “We are always striving to improve the lives of those receiving care and support and are thrilled our ARMED technology has been recognised as part of the Tomorrow’s Care Awards.
“This nomination is testament to the hard work of each and every one of our team and we are thrilled to see digital transformation being embraced by the sector with an increased priority to improving lives, increasing independence and preventing health issues before they arise.”
ARMED anti-fall technology was developed with support from Edinburgh Napier University and Scotland’s Digital Health and Care Institute (DHI). It is also a Microsoft partner.
The technology is also shortlisted for the Digital Health and Care Awards and Scottish Knowledge Exchange Awards.
