Fall Detection

Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for older Americans. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:

 

  • One in four Americans aged 65+ falls each year.
  • Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall; every 19 minutes, an older adult dies from a fall.
  • Falls are the leading cause of fatal injury and the most common cause of nonfatal trauma-related hospital admissions among older adults.

Having an alert system that values safety is a top priority of ours here at Medihill. Therefore, our equipment is using fall sensing technology. Pendants will automatically activate your Personal Emergency Response System during a fall, even if you can’t. Times when you need to activate your system to receive help, but due to circumstances can’t press your emergency button this product is the perfect solution. Our lightweight, water resistance pendant will detect a fall by utilizing sensors that react to downward movement or sudden jolts. Then the pendant will call assistance for you.

Now you can feel safe and secure about your independence knowing that your system will try to detect falls and take over if necessary.
