Tunstall Healthcare paves the way for telecare interoperability

Tunstall Group : 17 November, 2010  (Company News)
Tunstall Healthcare is to make available the specification for its radio receiver and transmitter devices, providing customers with the ability to use devices such as PIRs, fall detectors and smoke detectors, from commercial organisations that offer products that meet Tunstall’s 869 radio communication specification and the necessary regulatory standards.
Tunstall recently held a series of customer forums across Scotland, Wales, London and the north of England. These events helped shape and improve the company’s future strategy, and a key outcome from all events was confirmation that interoperability of products is a priority.

In the future, other suppliers’ sensors will be compatible with Tunstall’s Connect range of solutions and the Communicall Connect system.

Jon Lowe, UK Managing Director said: “Clearly what customers want, as part of their demand for scalable but personalised Telecare services, is the ability to choose the most appropriate technology to meet their requirements. I have decided to announce the sharing of our radio specification to give manufacturers of Telecare equipment the opportunity to integrate their devices with our extensive Telecare infrastructure.”

Steve Sadler, Chief Technology Officer added: “The progress over recent years on the subject of interoperability within independent living has been very limited. We have a new approach to digital radio technology that creates some exciting new opportunities in this area. Firstly it enables us to offer a greater range of devices including a significantly improved personal pendant. Secondly we are in a position to license this technology to providers of compelling Telecare solutions.”
