As we get older it can become difficult to move around. Sometimes our balance and strength can fail us, resulting in falls. When a fall occurs, it is important that help is available as soon as possible. Fall detection devices for the elderly can provide support.
How Do Fall Detection Devices Work?
Most fall detection devices are wearable technology. For example, Lifeline’s Vibby Fall Detector is worn as a pendant or on the wrist. Fall detection devices are configured to detect sudden changes in altitude. When this change occurs, an alert is sent to a response team.
These devices use an innovative algorithm that measures altitude and speed. This allows the fall detection device to compute whether the user has fallen suddenly or is simply sitting down.
When the alarm is activated, it will light up and vibrate. False alarms are easy to cancel, requiring the user to either stand up or cover the sensor for 20 seconds.
These devices can also be activated manually if help is needed for other reasons.
Fall Detection Devices from Lifeline24
When you purchase the Fall Detector plan you are benefitting from Lifeline24’s TSA-Accredited service. Our team are available 24/7, 365 days a year, providing round the clock protection. If you have a fall, the alert will be sent to the team who will respond and attempt to speak to you. Our response team will assess the situation and alert emergency contacts.
