About ARMED: With a focus on pressured resources across the Health & Social Care sector, ARMED was developed in recognition of the growing importance of prevention and self-management. Capturing data from an individual and their home environment and combining it with powerful machine learning allows changes to be identified so that action can be taken earlier in the care cycle,  empowering people to remain independent in their home for longer.
