How Design Network North Supported Encompass
Encompass Technology contacted RTC and Design Network North in 2016 regarding assistance for development of a patient and staff alerting system for use in Care Home and Hospital environments.
Funding was awarded for product development and prototyping culminating in a product launch at the largest healthcare exhibition in the world - Medica Dusseldorf in 2017.
4 pilot sites were installed in care homes in the UK during 2018 which have since developed into new orders throughout the UK for both new build care homes and retrofit systems to existing builds. The latest order placed from a contact first made at Medica 2017, for a system in a leading hospital in London – not what was expected from an exhibition in Dusseldorf!
Systems have already been exported to Singapore and New Zealand with many other export enquiries in the pipeline including a visit to Kuala Lumpur in April 2019 to meet with a potential distributor.
