Man Down Device With Auto Fall Detection
Did you know that falls, slipping or tripping are the major cause of workplace accidents across many industries worldwide? It accounts for 49% of all non-fatal workplace injuries. Any of these hazards may also cause serious injury to your employees and can potentially be fatal in some instances.
Knowing instantly when a serious fall happens and rendering direct assistance can be the difference between a minor injury and a life changing one. How do your employees who work alone or out of sight raise help when you cannot see them? How can they raise the alarm if they have been injured or need help? Our device may have the fall detection or man down alarm solution you need.
This device has a sensitivity adjustable, automatic fall detection built in, detecting serious falls.
To activate fall detection / Man down automatically, it requires:
– 1 meter or more sudden drop in altitude
– Angle change like falling backward or forwards
– An impact that could cause injury or incapacitation
If the parameters or sensitivity has not been met (like falling onto soft surfaces like grass or a short fall off a chair, it should be determined that the user can activate the SOS button themselves. If parameters are met, the device will automatically start an emergency sequence of SMS to nominated contacts (and start calling out in sequence if desired)
Man down alarm can be set for ‘no movement’ too. In the event the device doesn’t sense movement for a predetermined period of time, it alerts the nominated emergency contacts that the device has been stationary.
