A new approach to falls detection can save a lot of heartache

MimoCare are introducing a smart way to detect falls without the resident having to wear devices or carry a pendant.

It is known that a fall can sometimes result in concussion. Not only that the fall can aoccur at night. Confusion and fear are uppermost in the mind so much so the pendant can become forgotten and the bell push a long way away.

Mimocare collects movement and activity information every 6 mins and this information is extremely valuable. It is used to detect frailty trends through diminishing levels of activity and in the same way, should a fall eventually occur, Mimocare is well armed to recognise the situation.

Alexa can be brought into play at this stage of an alert issued.  (See separate news story regarding Alexa)
