Product Innovation

We exist to push limits, challenge thinking, innovate, and do what it takes to move safety and design in behavioral health and challenging environments to the next level. By exploring client insights, we are able to leap-frog to new ways of thinking that support smarter ways of operating and help deliver excellence in care.

From the introduction of the world’s only hinge-side anti-barricade door system, to the launch of our KOSMOS Smart Monitoring System, our history at Kingsway Group is dotted with carefully designed innovations in ligature resistant and anti-barricade technology, centered around the specific needs of clinical staff and patients.

By considering these needs at every step of our process, and through close collaboration with our behavioral health partners and people with lived experience, we are able to offer an extensive range of life-safety door systems to meet the demands of the most challenging environments.

Collaborative innovation

Our range of ligature resistant and anti-barricade solutions are developed in collaboration with leading health authorities, building designers, people with lived experience, and our behavioral health partners to ensure every requirement down to the finest of detail is considered. We call this process collaborative innovation, and it’s one of the things that’s helped us create globally trusted solutions that help enhance the healing environment.

Utilizing technology

Beyond physical products, our efforts to improve safety and reduce risk in behavioral health facilities extend to the use of smart technology to assist clinical teams in delivering the best possible care.

Following extensive research with many of our behavioral health partners, we have developed the next generation patient monitoring software to allow clinical teams to fully monitor ligature alarms while providing early warning indicators of ligature attempts.

In addition, KOSMOS provides management teams with invaluable data by logging a full audit trail of door activity, staff observations, and ligature alarm activations to help review patient care quality and highlight key trends on wards, such as patients leaving their rooms at specific times during the night or remaining in their room more than usual.
