  Hunan China Sun Pharmaceutical Machinery Co (China Sun), was listed as one of the first demonstrative enterprises of the smart elderly care sector at a conference in Beijing on Dec 28. China Sun, located within the Changsha Economic and Technological Development Zone, is the only Changsha enterprise to receive the honor.

  Sponsored by the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the Ministry of Civil Affairs and the National Health and Family Planning Commission, the conference promotes the use of smart hardware and mobile platforms in the elderly care industry.

  In recent years, the Changsha-based enterprise has been ramping up its promotion for the development of a big health industry, featuring medical apparatus, instruments and medical services.

  China Sun is pulling its full strength to build a big data platform focusing on the precise management of chronic disease such as hypertension and diabetes, through the integration of genetic testing, tele-medicine, real-time monitoring, and distribution of medicine and medical equipment. When completed, it will be able to provide comprehensive services and integrated solutions.

  At present, the company has released a series of smart products and wearables, including smart sphygmomanometers, smartwatches and matching applications.

  Last year, China Sun cooperated with the Changsha county government to launch a China-first personalized medicine genetic testing project for patients with hypertension, which will serve more than 40,000 locals.

  As the country is faced with the mounting challenge of an aging population, people have raised concerns over health issues. Efforts to establish a smart elder care system must be strengthened.

  Changsha's China Sun will strive to keep making innovative technologies, products and services which can be used to make elderly care services more convenient, affordable, and of a higher quality according to the company.
