We have built a strong reputation by delivering a consistently high quality product in the form of the Romad RSP100 handset, which is already being used by Cruz Roja (Red Cross Spain) to protect over 5000 people from domestic violence and has also been selected for a 1500 device trial for dementia monitoring”.
