The risk of falling, an ongoing concern for anybody with impaired balance or mobility, increases with age. It poses a particularly significant health risk for the elderly, even those in good general health, as a fall can lead to serious injury. More than half of all falls take place within the home, making the MCT-241MD an ideal solution for reliable fall detection and alert.
MCT-241MD is a stylish wireless fall detector that functions both as a standard manual emergency alert button and as a fall detector, which automatically triggers a call to the monitoring center for immediate help. The fall detection is enabled by a built-in tilt sensor that can sense when the detector, which is worn by the user, tilts at more than 60o; for more than a predefined period of time (usually about a minute). This activates an alert transmission to the control panel, which notifies the monitoring station, enabling help to be dispatched immediately.
