SureSafe’s ‘Fall Alert’ is the latest advancement in personal alarm technology, building on the traditional pendant alarm and providing increased protection.
Following a fall, or when suddenly feeling unwell, it is not uncommon for the pendant wearer to be unable to activate it due to either being unconsciousness or because of a loss of mobility (e.g. following a stroke).
Using ‘Smart Technology’ the SureSafe ‘Fall Alert’ alert alarm pendant will automatically activate the alarm when it detects that the wearer has had a fall.
The ‘Fall Alert’, measuring air pressure and speed of movement, will detect a fall and send a signal to the base unit to raise the alarm.
To prevent false alarms, the ‘Fall Alert’ alert alarm pendant will alert the wearer that it has been activated, and the wearer can cancel the alarm by simply pressing the button on it.
In addition, the ‘Fall Alert’ offers all the features of a SureSafe 24/7 Connect alarm pendant:
– Press the alert alarm button to activate the alarm
– 50m range from the base unit gives you coverage in your home and garden
– Water-resistant: suitable for use in the shower (not bath)
– Discreet, stylish and lightweight design
– Designed to prevent false alarms
Please note that as the nature of a fall can vary dramatically the pendant does not detect 100% of falls but significantly increases the wearers protection. Soft falls e.g. a slide down the wall, or from a chair, may be harder to detect than hard falls e.g. a trip while walking.
There is an ongoing monthly fee of £14.99 for rental of the alarm base unit and access to the 24/7 response centre.
