My mom fell the other day and couldn't talk. Luckily, her fall detection pendant automatically called for help. Alert1 contacted our whole family about the situation and helped my mom within 15 minutes. I am so glad we got this system for her.

How Does the Automatic Fall Detection Technology Work?

Fall detection technology follows basic physics principles.

As a reminder from high school physics: Speed is how fast an object is moving. Velocity is how fast an object is moving and in what direction. The units for both speed and velocity are meters per second. Acceleration, a relative measure, is the rate of change in velocity. It is measured in meters per second squared.

Within your fall alert help button, there are four advanced “accelerometers.” Accelerometers are small devices that contain microelectromechanical-system (MEMS) acceleration sensors. These sensors are silicon integrated circuits that detect changes in motion and body position in three dimensions.

Newton’s Second Law (f=ma) holds that an object's acceleration is the result of every force acting on it. On Earth, the main force acting on all objects is gravity or g-force. The baseline acceleration at sea level is 9.81 m/s^2, or 1g.

An Alert1 fall detection button sitting on your dresser has an acceleration of 1g, or gravity. The accelerometers in your fall device measure the change in g-force. In free fall, an accelerometer records zero g-force. That is to say, there is no constant force gravity. When the fall alert button stops its free fall, the accelerometer stops moving and records the sudden difference in g-force.

Software algorithms in your fall detection button interpret this sudden change in g-force as a fall event. Once the fall is detected, the button triggers a call to the Alert1 Command Center. Alert1 buttons are tested to differentiate between a fall and everyday movements, to reduce false alarms.


Response was immediate
Carolyn (Member since 5/18/2017)
Ist active test. She fell, did not have her Alert 1 wrist or pendant with her (lesson learned). I was at the drug store for about 45 minutes (lucky). When I came home, she had been on the floor in the hallway (no phone in reach.) I pushed your button and response was immediate, you called emergency services. All turned out well. Thank you.

amazing response
Kim (Grenada Hills, CA)
The response from Alert1 was great. The responding people showed up very quickly for the "assist" call after my mom slipped off the seat of her walker and could not get up. She was not injured, she just couldn't get up due to her weight and artificial knees. Thanks Alert1 for your help and for being kind and caring!!!

great and amazing

Great service. Really gave me peace of mind to leave Dad.

blessing in disguise
James (Lodi, CA)
We had dad's service for less than 1 week when he fell using his walker outside. The automatic fall detect worked perfectly as he made contact with you before he could even push the button. Dad ended up breaking his upper arm with 2 fractured ribs. He had surgery yesterday, and the doctors say everything looks good; especially for a 93-year-old man. We are very pleased with the technology, device, and call service.

Mom fell and could not get up by herself so she pushed her wrist button and immediately someone answered her call and told to stay down until someone arrived. They then called family and 911. The ambulance was dispatched promptly. Thank you.

perfect for my 92yo mother
Ann (Tucson, AZ)
I bought this for my 92-year-old mom. She wears it every day and it gives her peace of mind. When we did the test, she smiled and said, "now I feel like there is someone with me all the time!" It really made me feel good and I know she can get help any time she needs it!
