Medtech TeleMed24 in 2 million pln crowdfunding for services to deaf people.

MKW SA, the owner of the TeleMed24 digital platform for medical services, concluded an agreement with the regional branch of the Polish Association of the Deaf. As part of the cooperation, the company will ensure the adaptation of the telecare system to support the deaf and hard of hearing. It is estimated that there are approximately 1.4 million patients with hearing impairment in Poland.

In 2021, the Zakopane company MKW recorded an increase in demand for telecare services by over 300%, becoming the third largest entity of this type in Poland. The crowdfunding issue of MKW SA shares with a value of up to PLN 2 million, available at www.emisje.mkw.com.pl, will continue until January 12. The company wants to raise funds to expand the availability and promote innovative remote care solutions.

“It is estimated that there are currently about 500,000 deaf people and 90,000 hearing impaired people. Despite the act on sign language, which has been in force for many years, which obliges institutions to provide adequate service to this group of people, they still face a number of barriers. As part of cooperation with the Polish Association of the Deaf, we remove these barriers as part of the telecare services we provide” – explains Wincenty Pelc, President of the Management Board of MKW SA.

MKW develops remote patient care based on a team of paramedics available 24/7 and a dedicated TeleMed24 digital platform. For this purpose, the company uses tele-straps. They are used to locate the patient and automatically diagnose vital parameters, with the possibility of connecting with rescuers and sending SOS reports to the Operational and Assistance Center in an automatic mode, as well as on request.
