INDEPENDENT in Hull
The INDEPENDENT pilot in Hull is for older people living in sheltered or private homes. The sheltered homes have a version of Tunstall’s “MyClinic” Multiuser Device (MUD). This is a touch screen computer linked to blood pressure monitors, pulse oximeters and weighing scales.
It also has an ‘interview’ facility where people answer questions about their health and well-being and a link to a site providing information about locally available services.
The data is stored on the MUD but is also accessed by social and healthcare providers.
