In the framework of the IT4Anxiety project, we offer to the start-ups the possibility to test and validate their solutions in “real-life” conditions. The first start-up to test its solution is ELDOM!
ELDOM’s photoluminescence device to reduce patients’ night anxiety has been placed in 3 care homes in Scotland thanks to our partner NHS Western Isles. Moreover, the ELDOM demo kit will be displayed to the local healthcare professionals, healthcare providers and students.
Last week, Marion Macinnes, project partner from NHS has been doing a little tour of Scotland to deliver and install the ELDOM kits in the different care homes. The first two kits have been installed at the Bethesda care home in Stornoway, Isle of Lewis. Another kit has been set in the Leverburgh care home, 55 miles away from Stornoway. Two more kits have been placed at the Trianaid care home in Isle of North Uist.
Healthcare providers at the care home are welcoming this new solution and have high hopes. Indeed, at the Trianaid care home, Donna MacLeod, social care worker responsible for falls prevention said, “I’m looking forward to seeing how this project develops and hopefully it will help towards making sure our elderly generation are healthy and safe”.
