CHI Memorial Lifeline offers the only medical alert service in the area with AutoAlert fall-detection technology, meaning help is on the way if you suffer a fall. AutoAlert pendants contain unique sensors programmed to measure changes in a person’s height and orientation to a horizontal position and the velocity of those changes. When a person goes about their daily routine, such as sitting in a chair or getting out of bed, AutoAlert registers that movement as normal activity. If a person falls and doesn’t get up on their own after 30 seconds, AutoAlert automatically places a call to the CHI Memorial Lifeline 24/7 Response Center.
AutoAlert has proven to be 97% accurate in fall detection from a standing position and is ideal for seniors who live alone. Patients with a history of stroke, diabetes, seizures and other health conditions that put them at an increased risk of falling benefit from the technology.
