When we rapidly deployed video consultations as part of our Covid response we didn’t have a robust way of accommodating service users with accessibility or training needs. The Komp device enabled us to provide a rapid and easy means for service users to easily join a video consultation and receive care from within their own home that otherwise wouldn’t have the access or the ability to join a video consultation through a phone/tablet/computer.

"Highly recommend the device 11/10’’
A broad range of user profiles and staff have benefitted from NHS Western Isles' Komp project
Also non-clinical uses in social prescribing.
No Isolation provides training and support throughout all Komp projects. This means we can ensure its success, as well as getting regular feedback. Two team members at NHS Western Isles told us:
"I would recommend the device‘10/10!"
"Highly recommend the device 11/10."
Komp helped significantly reduce anxiety levels for local residents
In July 2020, Angus Council commenced a two month pilot trialling out Komp devices. The pilot gave them an understanding of its benefits and support for local residents, such as:
- Reducing social isolation and loneliness
- Increasing sense of belonging in the community
- Reduced anxiety
- Improved wellbeing
Following successful partnership work, in January 2022 the council expanded their Komp project.
Living independently in Forfar, Martha, 91, suffers from severe anxiety which meant she would make many calls a day to her GP, local ambulance and responder service when not required. Given her family live far away, local carers support her daily needs.
The Komp device was placed in Martha's home. She received calls, photos and messages from her children, grandchildren and siblings. The impact on her wellbeing and sense of belonging was immediate.

Komp is a great tool as there is nothing else like it out there. It is perfect the way it is. The features and capabilities of the device are great, it’s good to keep it simple. If you were to add more features then it becomes too complicated for the user and you move towards an ‘Alexa’ type device (which is too complicated for some users), you also lose the quality of the current Komp device.
