SBRI funding competition: technology for monitoring risk management at home


Submission Deadline: 25th April 2018, midnight 

Funding available: £150,000 (Up to £30,000 per organisation)

Telecare, through the introduction of new technology, is continuously evolving as a reaction to a growing population in retirement age and changing family structures, including low birth rates.

A number of telecare solutions, such as ambient sensors, GPS trackers and video technology, are in use in Glasgow. These products work in isolation, though they do not combine with the main telecare platform in use in the city.

Glasgow's Health and Social Care Partnership, supported by the Can Do innovation challenge fund, have created this competition for projects to develop a remote digital alarm monitoring system. The system must help with management of risks in the home experienced by people who have complex needs.  

Your project must be a robust digital solution that allows all uses to live independently within their own homes, with reduced reliance on publicly funded interventions. It will highlight risks remotely and link in to Glasgow's existing telecare platform, allowing Glasgow's Health and Social Care Partnership to respond appropriately. 

A briefing event will be held to find out more on 14th March 2018 in Glasgow. Find out more & register here.
