A provider of IoT-based telecare solutions, Essence Group has launched a new UK-specific telecare solution for elderly people.

Adapted from its Care@Home technology, the telecare provider launched its new solution following feedback from its distribution channels and partners.

Having produced connected devices for elderly care, security and healthcare for 25 years, creating over 50 million devices worldwide, Essence drew on its knowledge to address the unique needs of the UK TEC (technology-enabled care) and independent living sector.

The timing for this launch coincides with the growing need to upgrade monitoring solutions post-COVID-19, adds the provider.

Customising its existing suite of offerings to meet the requirements of the UK market, including integrating with leading telecare monitoring centre software and a multitude of digitally connected services, Essence SmartCare will be bringing the “most advanced” digital LTE/4G connected care platform to the UK.

Dr Haim Amir, CEO of Essence Group, commented: “We are excited to offer a more bespoke and nuanced set of solutions for the UK market, which offers valuable tools not only to residents, but also to caregivers and care-home management.

“Based on our experience and knowledge of the UK market, we have been able to build an offering that is unparalleled in the current UK Telecare landscape.

“We have spent considerable effort to integrate our platform with existing telecare monitoring software whilst still offering the same high level of service that our customers expect from Essence SmartCare systems.”

The new telecare solution incorporates multiple communication channels in one hub (4G, 3G, 2G, and ethernet) to meet the differing needs of the UK market.

In addition, the new solution integrates digital telecare functionality, including:

  • Care@Home Communicator – allowing elderly people to get help from anywhere in the home by using their voice
  • Activity monitoring – which learns the regular behaviour patterns of residents, alerting caregivers when abnormal patterns occur
  • Fall detection
  • Outdoor monitoring – which connects to telecare monitoring services while elderly people are outside their home, with the fall detection and emergency pendant offering hands-free calls to caregivers

A member of the TEC Services Association (TSA), Essence telecare products are also available in the UK through Appello, one of the leading TEC providers.

Essence SmartCare, part of the Essence Group, develops IoT platforms for healthcare and senior care providers, enabling smart preventive care and emergency response so elderly people can live life to the full with added peace of mind.
