The personal alarm will discretely buzz to indicate that an alert sequence is about to start. You simply press one of the buttons on the smartband to confirm that you do not want help.
The Assure connects wearers with those who are willing to step up if help is needed. We have recently taken the Runner-up spot in a BT global competition to find the best new device to connect people to ‘family, friends and community’.
We believe that alerts are urgent so we deliver them by automated phone calls but otherwise send emails and SMS text messages.
One of the Assure personal alarm's many unique features is that you can set multiple 'check ins'. These are timed alerts which will make your wristband buzz to check that you are ok. When you receive a 'check in' you simply press a single button to confirm that all is well.
The last thing anyone wants is for alerts to be sent to responders without good reason. The Assure has a number of ways to ensure false alerts are not sent;
One of the KEY issues with traditional pendant alarms is that they are passive, they will only trigger alerts when activated.
But what happens if you are not able to trigger it?
This is why we feel the Assure's 'wellness check in' system is vital for anyone who really wants piece of mind because it not only reacts when triggered but also initiates check ins to ensure that you are ok.
None of us know when an emergency will arise so the Assure is designed to be worn 24 hours a day, everyday.
This means we have concentrated on making the battery last for a year (or more) so there is no recharging and the Assure is waterproof too. Combined with award winning design in soft medical grade silicone there really is no reason to take it off.
We designed the Assure personal alarm so that it does not need to be taken off to recharge. The more a device is removed, the higher the risk of an accident whilst you are not 'covered' and the higher the chance the device will be forgotten.
Now the benefits of the Assure personal alarm can go anywhere you do.
So just load up our app and whether your phone is in your hand, your pocket or your bag all the benefits of the Assure will go with you.
The Assure personal alarm uses a movement sensor that constantly monitors for suspected falls. We listen for a telltale 'jerk' pattern that could indicate a serious fall and then check to see whether the person is moving 'normally' afterwards. If we suspect there may have been a fall the band will buzz asking the wearer to confirm if they don't need help.
There are various settings to suit most people’s needs.
"Sometimes our work or pastimes can put us at risk of falling, or it may be due to age or illness. Figures from AgeUK suggest that about one third of all people over 65 fall each year. If the person is isolated and unable to move the long-term consequences can be serious. The Assure uses advanced algorithms that detect possible falls"
