When Would Someone Use Fall Detection?
February 9, 2017
Gjenes shares some insight about our Automatic Fall Detection system as well as who should purchase one.
Hi, I’m Gjenes from Bay Alarm Medical, and today we have a question from Gloria in California. Gloria wants to know “When would someone need fall detection?”
As Gloria may have guessed fall detection is not needed in every situation. It works just like a regular button, except
that it has added protection for those who may be incapable of pressing the button during an emergency.
Common conditions where this feature is often needed our dementia, Alzheimer’s, strokes, seizures and sudden blackouts. If you have any of these conditions, then this will be the best option for you.
One thing you may want to keep in mind is that no fall detection technology detects 100% of falls, and may trigger false alarms. However our system is optimized to reduce those risks.
So I’m going to demonstrate how the fall detection system works. As you can see, everyday movements will not set off the alarm and lightly hitting the button against something also will not trigger the alarm. But at a high impact similar to a fall the alarm will go off, calling for help calling for help.
