Dignio Integrated Care Platform
Dignio offer a solution built to accommodate a seamless journey for individuals and care providers across increasingly complex care needs (self-management, domiciliary care, residential care, end of life care). The aim is to help keep people out of hospital, and in the safe hands of their care team in the comfort of their home. They provide a modern, easy to use remote care platform and connected devices to alert professionals if they need to act, and to engage people in their care. Health and social care teams across a region can use Dignio to monitor a single illness or a range of conditions. This has led to significantly reduced hospital admissions, and is saving healthcare millions of pounds.

Supporting care home staff to look after their wellbeing during a pandemic: the My Wellbeing training programme

The O2COMFORT flowmeter offers an innovative answer to oxygen therapy. This device can deliver oxygen in a traditional, continuous manner, but it also contains a comfort mode in which a dose of oxygen is only administered upon inhalation. The comfort settings 1 to 5 give an equivalent therapy of 1 to 5 litres per minute of continuous flow. The flowmeter offers additional advantages over the traditional flowmeter. When in comfort mode, the oxygen delivery follows the natural breath rate of the patient. In this way the O2COMFORT flowmeter increases the wellbeing of the patient while reducing the waste of medical oxygen.
