CRTKL is happy to announce that Radius was awarded Honorable Mention for Fast Company’s 2023 World Changing Ideas Awards.
Fast Company adds, “World Changing Ideas awards honor products, concepts, companies, policies, and designs that are pursuing innovation for the good of society and the planet. The contest, now in its seventh year, has honored everything from large companies’ sustainability initiatives to clever consumer products to groundbreaking government policies. There are many problems in the world, and we are interested in innovative ideas that solve any of them.”
“Radius meets the challenge created by the growing demand for more healthcare from an aging population coupled with the healthcare industry continuing to face access and staffing issues all layered on top of the housing crisis and desire to age in place.” Says Marisa Tindell, senior associate at CRTKL. “Radius is a concept that merges innovative technology that already exists meaning it could realistically be implemented tomorrow.”
RADIUS is a breakthrough concept that offers 360-degree care to the individual through the creative mashup of emerging technologies including the Internet of Things (IoT), sensor technology, AI, 5G technology, nano technology, and more—all in the privacy and comfort of their own home. Through the seamless implementation of a home health “kit of parts” into an adaptable universal floor plan, RADIUS allows space for dignity, ageing in place and independence for a population that is traditionally reliant on in-person appointments, bedside nursing, and medication management. RADIUS makes healthcare and memory care safe, convenient, sustainable, and accessible for all.
RADIUS uniquely integrates cutting-edge technologies and ideas like never seen before to solve some of the most pressing social, economic, and environmental challenges the world is facing today. While it caters to a wide umbrella of patients and consumers, it creates a highly tailored experience for each individual, improving their health and wellbeing at every stage of life.
