The issue

The Fall,
key factor in the loss of independance among the elderly population

1st cause of mortality over 65

12 000 deaths/year

35 millions of people over 75

After 75 years, the risk of falling is at least 50%

More than 75 000 emergency admissions

1h without intervention often entails serious and non-reversible consequences

The solution

is the new generation of wrist and neck-worn automatic fall detector, featuring a fall trigger, replacing conventional push buttons. The enhanced reliability and the new design allow to protect frail people of any age (Epileptics, Parkinson…). The Vibby OAK features a BluetoothTM function, for a simpler configuration and a more extensive connectivity.
