fall detection technology work?
The pendant includes state of the art motion sensors. These
sensors can tell when you are simply moving around, or if you have taken a fall.
Once it senses a fall, it will place an automatic call for help, whether you
press the button or not. This will guarantee that help will reach you, even if
you are not capable of asking for assistance. Our caring operators are trained to assess the situation and follow the proper protocol.
After a call for help is placed, we follow a set of
procedures that will ensure a quick response. We will contact the people in
your circle of care in the order you have specified. We will also make sure
that if medical care is needed, 911 is dispatched as soon as possible.
Why do I need fall detection?
Even though 1 in 3 older adults fall every year, you can
keep yourself and your loved ones safe. No one can predict when a fall will occur. Wearing your fall detection pendant around your home and yard will ensure you get the specific emergency response you need.
Can I wear it in the shower?
According to the CDC, the bathroom is an especially dangerous room for fall-prone seniors. That's why we have made the pendant showerproof. It is important to have easy access to help wherever you are- in the shower, washing the dog, watering your garden.
The instant call for help will let
medical professionals help you sooner. Quick response time lowers
hospitalization rates and minimizes the recovery time, especially for older adults.
