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 Automatic Fall Detection Technology Work?

Fall detection technology follows basic physics principles. We won’t get too far into the weeds here, but we think it’s important for our users to understand how our fall alert systems work.

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 acceleration sensors. These sensors are designed to detect changes in motion and body position in three dimensions. Put simply, these accelerometers will detect if part of your body begins to accelerate in an unnatural way.

Isaac Newton found that an object's acceleration is the result of every force – speed and velocity – acting on it. On Earth, the main force acting on all objects is gravity, or g-force. 

An Alert1 fall detection button sitting on your dresser has an acceleration of 1g, or the standard gravity level. The accelerometers in your fall device measure the change in g-force. In free fall, an accelerometer records zero g-force. Therefore, when fall alert systems stop their 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.

Remember that Alert1 buttons are tested to differentiate between a fall and everyday movements. This reduces the number of false alarms sent from our fall alert systems.

Major Victory
Happy (Member Since 1/7/2021)
This is for my 91 year old mom. She wasn't sure if she would want to wear something all the time because she was concerned that it would bother her. But, she chose the necklace and it is so lightweight that she barely even remembers that she has it on! This is a major victory because the last company we had an alert necklace from, it bothered her too much and she never wore it.
