The system of smart sensors help seniors
Falling for the elderly may result in serious injury or even more serious injuries. For older people living alone, this problem becomes even more serious, because there is a chance that they will fall and not be able to rise without assistance, remaining lying on the floor for several hours, because aid is not nearby.
Of course, there is produced in the West gadgets like Life Alert, which tell the dispatcher special assistance services that the person has fallen and can not get up. They are really comfortable, but only in certain cases. Such systems are useless if the person at the time of the fall was not included in the equipment or even lost consciousness. That’s why a group of German companies is developing a universal automatic means Safe @ Home System.
The essence of this system is as follows: in each room of an old man set a special box with sensors, but not on the ceiling, as in the case with smoke detectors. These boxes are installed optical and acoustic sensors that monitor the position and motion of a person inside each room. If sensors see that the man fell (and including requests for assistance), the timer is started, designed for a specific time. If during this time the man himself can not rise, they transmit the signal to the main unit system CareBox.
Before you take action to save human CareBox block calls to the phone owner, it was possible to turn off the system, in case, if a person can rise himself within a certain time. If a person can not rise, the system begins to receive calls from rescue services, as well as phones relatives or friends, reporting that their loved one is now at home and can not get up from the floor.
All data received by the system to any remote servers are not sent, so about personal security do not worry. Furthermore, the system does not require maintenance and replacement of batteries. In addition, the system is installed without problems in ordinary houses and does not, as in the case of working with some similar devices, changes in the layout of the room.
Safe @ Home is being developed by the Institute of Mechanical Engineering and Automation Society Fraunhofer Foundation BruderhausDiakonie, as well as tech companies and Vitracom Sikom. Since 2012 the prototype systems have a very long testing in six different accommodation facilities with personal care and excellent results. Commercial versions of this product are expected on the market later this year.
