WellBe Pendant Medical Alert Fall Detection
When seniors fall, they can experience detrimental health consequences such as a broken bone or head trauma. It is estimated that, by 2030, seven deaths by fall will occur every hour for people ages 65 and older. Though not every fall is deadly, the probability of falling again after one fall grows. This will increase the chances of you or a loved one continuing to suffer injuries. That is why HandsFree Health created the WellBe® Pendant, a medical alert fall detection service, designed to keep you or a loved one safe.
The WellBe Pendant fall detection alert system provides up-to-date technology that allows quick communication when in an emergency situation. The pendant is an innovative medical alert device that has reinvented the way we call for help, locate loved ones, and communicate with professionals in the event of an emergency. The pendant offers many features to ensure you or a loved one will be in the hands of fast-acting medical assistance.
What the Pendant Medical Alert Fall Detection Does
The ultra-light WellBe Pendant provides protection and security on the go. The service provides 24/7 emergency monitoring in the smallest, lightest 4G pendant. In the event of an emergency, the 4G pendant becomes a two-way communication device with emergency dispatch. By adding the automatic fall detection, you will be able to provide extra security to you or a loved one in the event of a hard fall. A GPS provides your location to first responders. The pendant offers:
- 24/7 emergency response
- Optional automatic fall detection alert system
- Two-way communication
- Voice prompts
- 4G LTE cellular connection
Purchasing the pendant ensures your or a loved one’s health is prioritized by emergency services. Additionally, since the pendant interacts with the WellBe voice technology platform, caregivers and family members can easily locate a loved one by using the WellBe Virtual Assistant app from anywhere in the U.S.
How the Pendant Works
The medical alert fall detection system is designed to detect when a hard fall occurs. A hard fall is defined as any sudden downward movement unique in speed and distance. Detecting only hard falls limits the number of false alarms and provides a better user experience. When a hard fall is detected, your WellBe Pendant will automatically initiate a call for help and connect you with emergency services without the need to press a fall detection button.
In some instances, a non-fall may be detected. It is also important to note that fewer than 100% of falls are detected. If capable, the WellBe Pendant user should always press the fall detection button in the event of an emergency.
