More than 35% of those over 65 will fall each year
ACCORDING to government figures one in three over-65s will fall each year in Australia, resulting in more than 1.5 million hospital days spent on fall-related injuries.
More than 70% of these falls happen in or around the home, and nearly 20% result in head injury and 30% in hip/leg fractures.
Of all the available information there is no clear indication on how long people remain "undiscovered" following a fall.
Emergency Medical Services specialises in fall detection systems and monitoring with safeTwear, the world's smallest-smartest fall pendant.
Weighing only 34 grams and around the size of a matchbox this remarkable technology not only detects a fall, it also connects directly to our 24-hour monitoring centre with two-way voice communication.
Whether you are at home, in the garden, out for a walk or at the shops, slip, trip, fall or just push the panic button, you are connected directly with a monitoring specialist, talking with you directly through the pendant.
Help is quickly on the way, and the built-in GPS gives them your exact location.
In the event that you are rendered unconscious, we have your full medical history on file to share with responders and ensure you get the correct help in the quickest possible time.
The technology is so smart yet so simple to operate, and each unit is programmed to suit the customer's needs.
All you need to know is push the button in the case that you need medical help, or if you fall the system will automatically detect this.
No more bulky base stations, limited voice distances, limits to in-home or connections to phone lines are needed.
With safeTcare 24/7 professional monitoring, rest assured help will be with you immediately, giving absolute peace of mind for both you and your family.
You're not too young for safeTwear - live life, love independence, stay at home and out of care.
