Healthy Living: Fall Alert

One in four Americans 65 and older will fall this year.

Every 11 seconds an older adult is treated in the emergency room from a fall, and every 19 minutes an older adult dies from a fall.

In Healthy Living, we see how a new tech solution now summons help and can also coach seniors on how to stay strong.

The cost of the MyNotifi is $299.

Since it does not use a call center, there is no monthly monitoring fee.

While the user can initiate a call by tapping on the device, the MyNotifi also uses an algorithm to detect if a person has fallen, and alerts the people in the wearer’s network.
