Long Island City, NY (PRWEB) February 25, 2016
Tunstall Americas, the North American division of Tunstall Healthcare Group – a world leader in Connected Healthcare – has partnered with Silicon Valley based Kinoke, to launch a unique living history app for families. The app, called Kinoke, is now available on the App Store and Google Play. Kinoke lets people record stories about their life and share them with family and friends as a private, interactive archive. The app also functions as an effective tool for family caregivers to ensure social engagement with isolated, senior family members.
As people age, it becomes more important to stay connected to other people. This social engagement has been shown to: lower blood pressure and potentially reduce risk for cardiovascular problems, some cancers, osteoporosis, rheumatoid arthritis, Alzheimer’s disease, and mental health issues, such as depression. Kinoke is an effective app for connecting seniors to their family in an innovative way.
Kinoke has been specifically designed for telling and sharing family stories; and it is a user friendly, fun and simple app. It’s easy to share and access Kinoke via email or through a Facebook account, to invite family and friends, and to start sharing family memories or events in real time.
The app features instant video recordings, uploading of photographs and instant notifications. Stories are stored under categories such as funny, origins, occasion, life lesson, or career which makes archiving easy. It is a virtual shoebox for stories and memories that can be commented on and shared. By utilizing Kinoke family memories are preserved for each generation to come.
Casey Pittock, President and CEO of Tunstall Americas stated, “We are very pleased to be able to offer Kinoke free of charge to our customers, partners, and family and friends, and all consumers. This app compliments our Connected Life strategy. Connected Life is a collection of Connected Care and Connected Health services aimed at supporting the independence, freedom, social engagement, and health and wellbeing of individuals.”
