The Current Situation: Fall Alarm For Elderly
More than 1 in 3 people over 65, and 1 in 2 people over 80 will suffer a serious fall this year (Age UK)
With an older person dying every hour in the UK as a result of a hip fracture (Age UK), falls amongst older people are a serious problem in the UK and worldwide.
Early Intervention: Fall Alarm For Elderly
Falls not treated in 1 hour or less often cause serious, irreversible consequences
- With 1/3 of people over 65 living alone in the UK (Age UK), raising an alarm after a fall can be difficult.
- Having a fall is very traumatic, let alone not being able to raise an alarm for hours, sometimes days afterwards.
- Raising an alarm as soon as a fall has occurred means emergency assistance is much more likely to arrive quickly, often preventing serious health implications.
How does it work?: Fall Alarm For Elderly
Up to 10 people or organisations can be called automatically as soon as a fall is detected.
- The wearer has a hard fall, anywhere in their home or garden (up to 50m radius from the base unit)
- The fall sensor will wait 20 seconds to see if the person stands up, if they do, it cancels the alert to avoid false alarms
(If the person attempts to get up and is unsuccessful, or raises their arm trying to get up, this will NOT cancel the alarm)
- The device will flash and vibrate for around 20 seconds. If the person does not cancel the alarm during this time…
- The base unit will automatically call up to 10 emergency numbers, as many times as you set
– Call Contact 1: three times
– Call Contact 2: two times
– Call Contact 3: four times etc.
- When you answer the call, your phone will speak a recorded message ‘Emergency Pull Cord’, simply press 4 on your keypad to be put through to the base unit in the wearer’s home, which has a very loud speaker and microphone. You can then speak with the individual, or you if can’t hear them, get someone to check on them or call the emergency services.
The device knows when it has reached a voicemail or answering machine, and will move on to the next contact.
