An elderly emergency alarm or fall prevention system is a device or system that is designed to alert caregivers or emergency services in the event of a fall or other emergency. These systems can be used to help prevent falls and provide peace of mind for elderly individuals and their caregivers.
There are several types of elderly emergency alarms and fall prevention systems available, including:
- Wearable alarms: These are devices that can be worn around the neck or on the wrist and are activated when the user pushes a button or falls.
- Bedside alarms: These are devices that can be placed on a bedside table and are activated when the user falls or pushes a button.
- Floor sensors: These are sensors that can be placed on the floor and are activated when the user falls.
- Motion sensors: These are sensors that can be placed in the home and are activated when movement is detected.
It’s important to consult with a healthcare professional or occupational therapist to determine the most appropriate fall prevention system for an individual’s specific needs.
