BRINGING TOGETHER CLINICAL AND TECHNICAL EXPERTISE TO SUPPORT THOSE AT RISK

Intertwined_edited_edited.jpg

About

As a team we have always been passionate about using innovation and technology to identify and  protect the vulnerable and those at risk.

 

Our Story...

In 2018 our co-founder, Tim Farmer, began to apply his clinical expertise to the problem of how to assess financial vulnerability and mental capacity in an increasingly on-line world where there is often no direct contact with the end user. Along the way he teamed up with other experts in a wide range of fields and the end result of this was the development of a Cognitive Assessment Engine and the birth of Comentis.

 

What makes us different...

We believe our diversity is what makes us great. Utilising our complimentary skills and expertise we have created an affordable and easy to deploy, evidence based technology solution that enables organisations identify people who are at risk and support them appropriately.

If you share our passion for utilising technology and innovation to protect those at risk and want to know more about what we do get in touch.

Our Mission

To protect and support the vulnerable, who would otherwise go unidentified and undetected, through the use of inclusive technology.
