The Advantages of Non-Wearable Fall Detection Devices: MDsense by Essence SmartCare

Back to Blog

In the realm of senior care and aging-in-place solutions, non-wearable fall detection devices have emerged as a game-changer, offering peace of mind and safety for seniors and their caregivers in a non-intrusive yet reliable way. Among the solutions available on the market, MDsense by Essence SmartCare stands out as a cutting-edge fall detection system designed to revolutionize how falls are detected and responded to in homes and retirement facilities.

A significant challenge faced by elderly individuals is that they often neglect or refuse to wear panic buttons or pendants with fall detection capabilities at home. Many seniors may not perceive the need for such devices or simply forget to wear them regularly. This lack of compliance poses a serious issue, as it increases the risk of critical situations that could have been avoided with timely intervention. Recognizing this problem, Essence SmartCare developed a radar-based non-wearable fall detection solution that operates 24/7 without requiring active participation from the end-user. This innovative technology provides a passive level of care during times when seniors are most vulnerable, ensuring their safety and well-being even when they may not be wearing traditional wearable devices.
