AutoFALL Automatic Fall Detection Pendant
Automatic fall detection pendant uses sensors and software to determine if a wearer has fallen. In the event of a fall, the device will initiate a call to our Emergency Response Center. The Emergency Response Center will know the name and location of the wearer, and summon help. The Emergency Response Center agent can contact family, caregivers, neighbors or EMS as needed and will both call and send text messages in the event of a dispatch.

Solution
Problem (i.e. barrier, issue, complication, etc.) being solved for the end user
Elderly people are highly subject to falling in their own home, resulting in injury and death. Automatic fall detection pendants enable the wearer to get help in the event of a fall without having to press a button or take other action. Getting immediate help following a fall incident can reduce recovery time, prevent further injury, and reduce hospital readmissions.
Idea/solution to the problem, if applicable
Automatic Fall Detection means the device worn by a subscriber can detect motion and initiate a signal to call our emergency response monitoring center without the user having to press the button. Automatic fall detection adds an additional layer of protection in the event the user is unable to press the button for themselves.
Level of adoption (i.e. list of customers/users, testimonials, etc.), if applicable
Thousands of fall detection pendants in use - this is a proven technology that is widely adopted, but not widely understood.
Impact (i.e. measurable outcomes), if applicable
Increased speed of delivery of emergency help; reduction in hospital readmissions; improved safety for elderly patents in their own home.
