Recornect enjoys worldwide renown in the field of psychiatry for our CoWin de-escalation solution, which is being implemented in a growing number of institutions. CoWin (‘Communication Window’) is a touchscreen media wall housed in a virtually indestructible casing, which is built into crisis unit de-escalation rooms. The key advantage of CoWin is that it makes interaction and contact between patients and caregivers or family possible, whether in a personalised digital environment or not.
