Visonics Fall Alert Systems
These types of fall alert systems can save lives. We know that falls are the #1 cause of senior injuries today. Medical Alert buttons that signal help when pressed are incredibly valuable, but what happens if a person falls and is rendered unconscious?
With our auto fall alert systems the user(s) can signal for help when they are unable to press their emergency help button.
Using your Fall Alert Pendant
1- You should wear your pendant transmitter whenever you are at home even in the shower or bath. Your pendant transmitter is waterproof.
• Optional Wristband Does Not Have Auto Fall Detection- Your pendant transmitter can also be used with an optional wristband. To make the pendant transmitter wristband smaller, slide the pendant transmitter towards the buckle. To make the wristband larger, slide the pendant transmitter away from the buckle.
Fall Alert Systems with Clip on Pendants
Fall Alert systems are activated once the unit is tilted by more than 60° in any direction or by pressing the gray button on the transmitter.
You will notice that once the fall alert pendant is tilted at a 60° angle the red light on the pendant will flash setting the alarm. Throughout your day, you may hear numerous musical tones from the console as your body movements shift which causes the pendant to tilt. Once the pendant has returned to the upright position you will hear this tone again (90 degrees).
Don’t be alarmed. Honestly, this is a soothing tone to hear. Now, this tells you that the auto fall alert button is working. If the user is on the floor and the pendant has not had any movement for 15 seconds it will call our monitoring center, Remember you have this program just in case you can’t press your button on your own. Become accustomed to these pleasant sounds.
If you fall and are unable to press the button on your fall alert pendant, the auto fall switch will send a signal to the console reporting a fall alert code to our monitoring center and summons help you need immediately. How Comforting is that?
