Prism Medical UK, a leading designer and manufacturer of affordable, clinically effective healthcare products, is delighted to announce a new partnership supporting the continued education of healthcare students.
Partnering with the University of Central Lancashire, Prism Medical UK has provided a range of market-leading healthcare devices to enhance healthcare education at the university. In return, Prism Medical UK will have access to the facility to support us in running training and educational health-based workshops.
Over 3,000 students on a variety of Allied Health Professional programmes, including occupational therapy, physiotherapy and nurse education, will have the opportunity to get hands-on experience with equipment such as our Freeway TA180 transfer aid, T80 shower chair and a variety of slings and moving and handling aids. Prism Medical UK’s sister company, Harvest Healthcare, has supported this collaboration by providing a Woburn Community Profiling bed. We also installed our new Freeway TX Advanced ceiling track hoist with a quick-release trolley and an H-system layout.
Chris Claydon-Butler, Managing Director for Prism Medical UK, commented, “Training and education are fundamental to achieving high-quality care. We are delighted to have the opportunity to support our next generation of healthcare professionals. This partnership is an excellent chance to help students reach their educational goals, provide them with the resources they need to succeed and train our future stars in this industry. We hope this training facility will help ensure everyone can access the best possible medical care.”
Tara Brookes, Principal Lecturer, School of Nursing, University of Central Lancashire, said, “We are delighted to be working in collaboration with Prism Medical UK. The partnership will not only support our current simulated learning strategy but enable students studying on health-related course to learn in an environment reflective of contemporary healthcare. Additionally, we are delighted in return to support Prism Medical UK through the provision of clinical learning spaces to provide training for Occupational Therapists in the Northwest area.”
We are excited to see what this collaboration will bring for the students and look forward to working closely with the University of Central Lancashire.

We are delighted to announce the new strategic partnership we’ve formed with IoT Solutions Group [IoTSG], a specialist provider of Internet of Things [IoT] enabled solutions for both the public and private sector. This partnership will enable us to advance our product offering and expand into the ‘Smart Healthcare’ space, in line with growing market demands.
At Prism Healthcare, our mission is to transform the quality of life of people with health and mobility conditions by providing solutions that offer choice, value for money, and help make care delivery easier. In addition to this, one of our key strategic objectives is to express our personality by connecting with our market, prescribers, and customers. Our partnership with IoTSG not only demonstrates our commitment to our mission but will also help us to achieve this goal.
By securing IoTSG as our new technology partner, we will now be able to extend our level of care to end-users through the deployment of advanced, ‘in-home’ assisted living sensors, which cleverly monitor the daily activity of vulnerable people living independently.
This technology can be simply placed in the kitchen of a vulnerable person, where it discreetly and unobtrusively monitors their day-to-day activity. In response to any significant decrease in a resident’s activity levels, a customised alert can be sent to carers or family members, enabling swift and appropriate action to be taken and thereby significantly minimising the risk of severe injury or death.
Speaking about the new partnership, our CCO, Claire Litton, said: “We’re delighted to have partnered with IoT Solutions Group and to have their support in achieving our aspirations to move into the ‘Smart Healthcare’ space.
“The future of healthcare truly lies in technology like this, and we take pride in enhancing the products and services we provide for the benefit of vulnerable people living independently and their loved ones.” To find out more about IoT Solutions Group, go to https://www.iotsg.co.uk/.
