How does the fall detection work?

Life Guardian’s fall detection systems use “accelerometers,” a type of low-power radio wave technology that can monitor the movements of our clients. We use three different types of axis accelerometers.

The fall alert technology can measure sudden falls by detecting abrupt changes in body movements.  The technology can further evaluate body position, physical activity, and the smoothness of their acceleration of movements. If our device’s algorithms determine that these variables are within the “danger zone,” it will automatically alert a Life Guardian representative.
