VIGIL-AIDE FALLING ALARMS.
Where a person is subject to falls in their home or out in the garden, the person may lay unattended for an extended period of time before they are discovered. This is especially so where the person lives own heir own. As a result of the fall, the person may fracture one of their bones or be rendered unconscious.
AFFECTS OF THE PROBLEM.
Should this be the case, the person would then lack the ability to summon assistance and hence place their health in real danger.
HOW THE ALARM WORKS TO OVERCOME THE PROBLEM.
DCT ASSOCIATES PTY LTD has developed two different alarms incorporating tilt switches and a timer delay for these circumstances. The difference between the two alarms is range.
One has a range of between 20 and 30 metres, the other has a range up to 900 metres.
The short range unit delay can be set to any length but our experience shows that a 20 second delay is recommended. The built in delay allows the person wearing the alarm to bend over for short periods of time without initiating the alarm. This is ideal in situations where the person works in the garden of does house work.
While the delay timer is operating, a buzzer sounds indicating to the wearer that the alarm has been initiated and they have only 20 seconds before the alarm radio signal is sent out summoning help. The delay timer is immediately cancelled if the person wearing the unit stands upright.
The long range unit has a fixed time delay of 24 seconds.
The alarm can be worn around the waist in a pouch.
The alarm is fully automatic. There is no need for the person to initiate the call for help.
Both units have a duress facility enabling the person to summon assistance without having to fall over.
The alarm output can be:
An audible alarm
Input to a monitored alarm system such as Vital Call
Can interface into an autodialler system.
The system is simple to use and requires almost no installation activity.
Relatives of people living on their own are provided with peace of mind knowing hat if the person falls, an alarm is generated. It allows the person to move about the house and garden knowing that if anything happens, an alarm will be activated.
Radio transmission by coded radio signal enabling falling alarm units to be located in adjacent rooms.
Falling alarm unit powered by 9 volt lithium battery.
Generally two weeks after placement of order.
Only installation required is the connection of the alarm output lead to the telephone line where a telephone access is required.
Complete installation information is supplied with the alarm.
The alarm can be purchased outright or can be rented over a 12 month or 24 month period with a residual at the end of the rental period.
