Leading provider of telecare and telehealth solutions, Tunstall Healthcare, will be previewing its latest intelligent personal pendant with automatic fall detection, the iVi, and next-generation monitoring centre software PNC7, at this year’s Telecare Services Association International Telecare and Telehealth Conference in Birmingham.

iVi (pronounced ivy) is Tunstall’s new intelligent pendant, which features integrated fall detection.  The lightweight, compact personal device is the only product of its kind to have a ‘not-worn’* alert, which raises an alarm at the monitoring centre if it hasn’t sensed movement for a defined time period. The pendant has several wearing options and can be adjusted to suit individual needs, with three variable sensitivity levels available. It also features both a button to raise an alarm, and an additional button to cancel any potential alerts that were triggered unnecessarily.

Of the 143 respondents who completed the questionnaire, 76% of users felt telehealth gave them peace of mind and reduced anxiety about their condition, whilst 65% said it helped them better manage their conditions and overall health and wellbeing.
