SAN ANGELO, Texas, Nov. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- MedHab, the creator of wearable technologies and the MyNotifi
As we age, our tendency for a fall increases dramatically. In fact, according to the National Council on Aging, over half of America's 80+ population will experience a fall each year. Not only are falls dangerous and expensive, but they are also a leading contributor to long-term care for seniors.
MyNotifi is a discreet fall detection wearable either clipped to a belt or worn on the wrist. When a fall is detected, the device automatically alerts the wearer's customized list of contacts. MyNotifi does not require the wearer to push a button to send out alerts when a fall occurs, however, a push button on the device can summon help at any time.
"When a fall occurs, minutes matter," said MedHab CEO and MyNotifi creator, Johnny Ross. "MyNotifi will send alerts out to every single participant on the MyNotifi app. We also have built-in strength and range-of-motion exercise videos to help users prevent falls, before they occur.
MyNotifi connects via Bluetooth to the wearer's smartphone or to the MyNotifi in-home Hub*. If the wearer has a smartphone, the device can detect falls and the location, no matter where the wearer goes. However, MyNotifi also offers an in-home Hub for at home fall detection, designed for those without a smartphone.
When a fall is detected, any designated caregivers or family members can be alerted through the MyNotifi smartphone app. Responders can even see the wearer's GPS location (smartphone required.)
With MyNotifi, Comfort Keepers clients have an easy way to connect with their families and friends 24/7 and can even support the loved one after a fall or other event occurs.
The MyNotifi device pairs with a free smartphone app, which comes pre-loaded with exercises designed to help with fall prevention. Comfort Keepers offices can use the MyNotifi guided program to help their clients maintain and/or build better strength and range of motion, to remain more mobile and reduce their risk of falling.
*The MyNotifi in-home Hub requires Internet Access
