about Zintouch

Care. Connect. Protect.

At Zintouch we develop digital solutions for care. Solutions that give people stronger ties with their environment.  And that make people’s lives safer. In three words: care, connect, protect.

Zintouch was established in 2014. Professional care providers know us in particular for our system for mobile personal alarm. The introduction of that system caused a small revolution at the time. And in 2016 we were the winners of the ‘Get Moving Event’ with it, organised by Menzis and ANWB.

In the meantime we have added many more modules to the Zintouch platform. From wander detection and access to the house and medication guidance and lifestyle monitoring. By now we are active in 9 European countries with this.

Zintouch is ‘UMO certified partner’ of Verklizan and our solutions have been integrated in the platforms of ENAI, VieDome and Sensara. In addition our solution for mobile personal alarm carries the Chain label Mobile Alarm of WDTM, the sector organisation in which care providers, suppliers and others that are involved collaborate to improve the quality of technology of residential care.
