ARMED provides wearables and environmentals to help with self-management and early risk identification, allowing intervention and ultimately prevention.
Housing is now recognised as an important part of someone’s wellbeing - alongside their care and support.
Monitoring various aspects of the home environment has benefits for the individual and the housing provider. Earlier intervention to issues within a property will provide for an improved tenant experience as well as reduce the reactive costs, allow strategic decisions regarding budget & resourcing priorities and positively increase the longevity of the building fabric.
ARMED uses the latest wearable technology. Customers wear a Polar device which collects data on vital health signs 24 hours a day. This information is then synced, via Bluetooth, with a smartphone and uploaded to ARMED at regular intervals throughout a 24 hour cycle.
Using sophisticated predictive analytics, the data is analysed giving a wealth of information about activity / inactivity, sleep patterns and heart rate.
To get a richer picture of an individual's wellbeing, data from wearable devices is complemented with regular weigh-ins using Tanita Body Composition Scales, and grip strength tests. This provides insights into the changing nature of muscle mass %, body fat %, weight and hydration levels as well as changes within strength grip.
This information is uploaded to ARMED giving valuable additional insight into frailty issues.
