New technology continues to play a significant role in the delivery and support of community care services across the UK and the world. Sunderland’s digital ambitions drive our city forward to remain at the forefront of research and development around assistive technology (AT) and telecare solutions.
The National Assistive Technologies Test-Bed aims to create a sustainable model for first class in-home care, get the very best for service users, their carers and families, and to keep people healthier and independent for longer.
A 5G Project for Sunderland is well underway and designed to deliver superfast internet connectivity to schools, community rooms and numerous areas across the city.
The Living Lab provides staff, students and health professionals with the skills to meet the future challenges facing the healthcare sector.
