Advanced digital solutions for all your Health and Social care needs.
Health and Wellbeing are your greatest and most vulnerable assets.
We are living in a time when each and every person can be connected to a Virtual health care provider every day, all year round, or provided with their own personal health data to use how they wish.
We are the leaders in transforming the patient-clinician or Client/ Health wellness Leads in Social Care by constantly monitoring the wearable device data along with the user’s signs and symptoms. This is via our sophisticated platform, which identifies and stratifies health risks to provide effective early support to people who are at risk of poor outcomes. We can then notify and guide the user to help prevent problems from occurring or address them before they become worse.
Our mission is to empower people to make informed choices for early intervention and to have better, longer, healthier and more fulfilling lives.
Now is the time to adopt this technology, so why not talk to us about how it could help improve people’s lives and make your organisation stronger?
The Virtual Ward Technologies
There is an undeniable deficit of health care providers within the health and social care industry. This is unlikely ever to be corrected in the foreseeable future due to the stresses placed on the NHS and Social care Networks.
The NHS has become an overstretched and reactive ‘sickness’ service’ with waiting lists measured in years, it focuses on emergency care and very sick patients only, it cannot hope to cope with the health needs of the country in its current form.
This is exacerbating the high levels of ill health, leading to increased dependence on Social Care.
It is our combined aim to identify, reduce and eventually prevent the high levels of sickness suffered in the community. This intervention is essential for the individual, local authority, the NHS and for society in general.
It is our view that we need to focus on wellness and prevention.
“We as a company try to deliver evidence-based clinical care this is through behaviour change via education and supported person-centred techniques to improve mental wellbeing, social connection, healthy eating, physical activity, sleep and minimisation of harmful substances and behaviours.”
Primary Prevention—intervening before health effects occur. i.e. stay healthy and get fitter.
Secondary Prevention—screening to identify diseases at the earliest. Get back to Health and work on fitness.
Tertiary Prevention—managing disease post-diagnosis to avoid hospital admission and, if in the hospital, to allow early discharge to a lower level of care supported by the Virtual Ward and their Virtual Community.
The Six Pillars of Health
- Activity Healthy Eating Sleep.
- Mental Health, Healthy Relationships
- Minimising Harmful substances
- Ageing Society, Living longer, More living in ill health.
- Requiring more medical care, Fewer working people to care, and cover costs
- Shift from family care to Care homes
SARS COV2 has exposed our vulnerability to unsustainable Public Health services, Social Care Servies and Health Services.
How it works
Virtual Ward Technologies utilises advanced sensor technology, the internet of things, and Medical professionals to facilitate new and improved ways to detect potential health problems. This is achieved through regularly updated monitoring that produces data that can help indicate the status of a user’s health and wellbeing.
The health benefits
Our monitoring solution provides people with early awareness and education; when a health issue is potentially detected, an early intervention can be made to identify and provide early and effective support to people who are at risk of poor outcomes, followed with specific guided programs and helpful supported nudges back to health.
Early intervention reduces disease progression. It is cost-effective and allows clients and patients to keep working.
1 in 3 live in isolation. Isolation is the leading cause of depression, but only 10% are treated. Daily social interaction has proven to increase happiness and prolong life. 90% of the elderly want to stay in their own home but fail due to a lack of confidence that someone cares for them.
With our colleagues at Fitbit, we are able to utilise the latest in wearable technologies to detect, risk stratify, remotely monitor and advise users on their health and health risks.
The system is designed to automatically push key health risk indicators, which are constantly reviewed by Doctors and healthcare professionals in the Health Service or Community leads in the Local Authorities.
This allows for Drs and Nurses to work far more efficiently and care for thousands of patients as opposed to dozens and at home.
We believe in the abilities and skills of our physicians in the UK, but they need the best information that is possible in order to do their job well.
Providing our objective client-offered medical data takes out a lot of the guesswork that occurs at first contact and allows doctors to triage and prioritise at scale, optimising staffing levels and resources.
At VWT, we build Virtual communities of people who can help, interact and support each other to live healthier, more fulfilled lives wherever they live. Encourage personal responsibility, find validated benchmarks, and set achievable goals in a supportive environment to be the best they can be every day of their lives.
Through our programme, we provide access to the Fitbit Sense and Fitbit Versa 3 smartwatches and the Fitbit Charge 5 advanced fitness tracker. These devices offer a range of health features, with interchangeable bands so you can style to suit you plus great battery life of 5 days+.
What it measures
Heart rate, respiratory rate & temperature
Whether working hard or resting, the variation between heartbeats and your breathing rate can be tracked day and night. Significant changes could indicate potential signs of stress, illness or fatigue.
The additional ability to track skin temperature can also uncover signs of a fever or illness. And if abnormal readings are detected an alert is sent.
Sp02 sleep activity
Our system is unique in that we can detect real-time blood oxygenation levels, which is an essential element for detecting sickness but also an important metric for identifying those who are suffering from sleep apnoea.
Sleep apnoea leads to heart disease, obesity, depression and a fivefold increased risk of road accidents.
We can monitor the time and quality of sleep; additionally, we can risk stratify for sleep apnoea to prioritise this dangerous condition and get it treated.
Increased time and quality of physical activity are directly linked to physical and mental health. Activity releases chemicals in your brain, making you feel good, improving your self-esteem, helping your concentration…
…and sleep quality. Physical activity not only makes you feel better, but it’s also something many of us can do for free.
The system risk stratifies for blood pressure, alerting workers to abnormal readings and the need to liaise with a healthcare professional.
Obesity is a leading cause of many long-term health conditions, and actively tackling this reduces the risk of heart disease, diabetes, respiratory conditions, many cancers, sleep apnoea and overall life expectancy.
Heart Rate Variability
Heart Rate Variability can be an indicator of stress which impacts both mental and physical health. Clients are offered relaxation interventions and alerts the client for the potential need for healthcare intervention.
Wellness & stress management
Often overlooked, our insights will help clients to know more about their mental wellbeing and offer support and data for the client to use when accessing a healthcare professional.
The Fitbit range
Fitbit offers a stylish lineup designed with every fitness level and goal in mind that are packed with features that fuel your fitness journey and help you live a healthier life.
With dozens of interchangeable accessories that come in a variety of styles the Fitbit family not only makes you feel great but look good too.

Virtual Ward Technologie Limited was created to provide an answer to the management of Cov-19.
We were quick to realise that with this pandemic, the best treatment would be given at home early with a Virtual Platform and a means to provide rapid Oxygenation.
We were one of only a handful of companies that won through with the UK Ventilator Challenge and gained an MHRA UK Emergency Covid Approval for their novel home oxygenation Device ‘CTEX’.
Our Covid Virtual Ward Platform was also a tremendous success with Drs and Nurses, the results of which have just been published in a well-regarded peer-reviewed journal.
We realised that this system can be applied beyond that of the traditional health care model and into the realm of Social Care & Occupational Health.
We are unique in combining leading technology from Fitbit that identifies health metrics with a virtual ward and Dr oversight in our Health Service Model, or Local Authority Leads in our Social Care Model model to provide a cutting-edge real-time risk assessment tool that can be applied at scale.
This tool could help to identify illnesses early and provide an earlier opportunity for medical intervention, diagnosis and treatment. This could help with the prevention of serious disease and allow the individual to take a lead with their Health and avoid hospital attendance or Local Authority support.
