MedilinkWM extends business service to assisted-living market
16 March 2010
A membership service managed by UK industry association
Medilink West Midlands for the life sciences sectors has been expanded
to include the assisted living sector.
The service, myM-Link, delivers access to business opportunities
and information services to its members, and a host of tangible
benefits that are tailored and dedicated to businesses operating in
the UKs assisted living market.
Alvolution is the division of MedilinkWM that is dedicated to
stimulating demand for assisted living technology, leading and
driving the assisted living market to create better products to
deliver quality healthcare.
Rob Chesters, Manager of Alvolution, said: “Helping improve life
at home for those with disabilities and long-term healthcare needs
represents a major challenge to manufacturers of assisted living
technology. Estimates indicate that in the UK, the number of people
aged 65 or over will rise from 9.3 million to 16.8 million over the
next fifty years. This market is clearly growing and at the same
time becoming more developed and as it does, there are an increasing
number of commercial opportunities exposed.
“Alvolution’s myM-Link service presents a specialist service for
manufacturers and businesses already serving the assisted living
market, or indeed keen to break into this dynamic and growing
sector, so that they may play a part in improving the lives of the
elderly and those living with long-term health conditions.
“For product and service providers for the Assisted Living
sector, myM-Link delivers real benefits and medical market
intelligence as part of an organisation’s strategic business plans.”
Alvolution Collaboration Manager Alison Mlot, adds: “The myM-Link
service is already proven in other key sectors within the life
sciences market. The service tailors its support to the needs of
individual members, from monthly news, opinions and updates, to
mutually beneficial link-ups with potential suppliers, partners or
customers. The service can also extend to notifications of tender
opportunities and alerts of commercial opportunities.”
