Our AutoAlert fall detection could help save a life
Falls in seniors are common – 1 in 3 seniors falls each year. Nearly half of seniors cannot get up from falls on their own, and lying on the floor for an extended period of time can lead to serious complications, including:
AutoAlert automatic fall detection was designed to help people connect with help – quickly.
In developing our patented AutoAlert fall detection technology, we studied tens of thousands of hours of senior movement and activity, resulting in reliable fall detection.
Unlike other companies’ fall detection, Philips Lifeline AutoAlert uses three technologies to detect true falls:
2. Highly sensitive barometric sensors
3. Our finely tuned algorithm to differentiate between true falls and false alarms
According to the Centers for Disease Control, falls are the leading cause of nonfatal injuries and hospital admissions for trauma, as well as injury-related deaths. When a fall happens, every second counts, and our premium fall detection can be the difference for your loved one.
With an award-winning design, our AutoAlert Help button has been endorsed by leading experts in falls and geriatrics, such as the American Geriatrics Society, American Physical Therapy Association and National Council on Aging Falls Free Coalition.
