[ Healthcare ] Smart device, Smarthome & building
Every year, more than 16 million people worldwide fall at home and therefore require rapid medical attention. 82% of falls among older people occur when they are alone at home. Although some of them already have an emergency call system, this is not actively used in 8 out of 10 cases: Those affected are either unconscious after a fall, can no longer get up or cannot reach the button. In most cases, it is not only the fall itself that is dangerous, but also the time it takes for help to arrive. Rapid medical care can not only prevent serious complications such as thrombosis or muscle and tissue damage, but also minimize long-term damage or even save lives.
