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.

Your service is wonderful. I love having the security knowing if something does happen help is a bottom push away. The representatives are always courteous and offer reassurance that help is on the well.

This was last Monday. My mother became very weak and could not stand or walk. The EMTs came very quickly and got her to the hospital. She was discharged Friday 3/20 and is continuing to recover at home with Health Aides, Nursing and PT

Excellent Service!
Susan (Member Since 7/31/2019)
Mom fell and hit her head on the table. She was conscious but bruised and bleeding and could not get herself off the floor. She pressed her alert button and the operators contacted me and EMS immediately and stayed on the speaker with her until help arrived. Thank you for your excellent service!!
