Daily living aids

What are daily living aids?

Daily living aids is a term used to describe assistive technology that helps people live independently. They are not all super hi-tech, in fact most are simple products that are used every day. A reaching grabber or one-cup kettles are good examples.

Fall Prevention & Detection Products

Falls at home are one of the main concerns for distant family carers. Not only do they usually result in hospitalisation, they have an adverse effect on the confidence and self-esteem for the person. There are some simple technologies available that can help to reduce the likelihood of a fall in the home and while in professional care

Why do people fall?

Loss of balance, dizziness, delirium, disability, age, trip, slip. There are precautions that can be planned and implemented to reduce falls risks in the home. Remove rugs that could slip on polished or laminated floors. Move everyday cooking items to lower shelves in cupboards to reduce stretching and overreaching. Check footwear, loose fitting slippers are a favourite for causing a fall. Check medications are correct and are not causing confusion or cognitive impairment. Contact an expert for further advice. So, back to the Assistive Technology. Here are some examples

Fall Preventing Products

Bed and chair leaving alarms These are devices that detect a person sitting in their chair or laying in their bed. When they rise and attempt to get up an alarm is sent wirelessly to a pager or alarm device. You can see our range of occupancy alarms HERE

Remote controlled lights These are devices that remotely turn on a light in response to an action, like leaving the bed during the night. Some are mains powered and use a table or bedside lamp, others use battery power and can include a movement sensing PIR to automatically switch on a light

Voice prompting warning and reminder aids These are devices that allow recording of personal reminder messages, “Stay in bed” or “please remain seated I’m on my way to help”. The message can be triggered by a sensor pad, photoelectric beam or movement sensor.

Fall Detecting Products

Body warn fall sensor These devices usually contain an accelerometer and or a tilt switch to detect a change in height or position of a person’s body. They can transmit an alarm signal to a pager, telephone auto dialler or nurse call system. These devices are usually only for use within the home

GSM or Bluetooth fall sensor These devices are primarily for use outside the home, but they also provide an effective solution for indoor fall detection. When a suspected fall is detected the device sends a signal to generate an external alarm, to a mobile phone, home telephone emergency dialler or alarm call centre. Some devices can also provide GPS location tracker details and may include mobile phone calling

Medpage Limited T/A Easylink UK has manufactured and supplied fall detection and prevention products for over 20 years. How technology has changed during that time and how pleased are we to keep pace with it. Our new Micro-Tracker with fall detection and GPS positioning for example, weighs only 23g (just over ½ an ounce) and is not much bigger than a 50p coin
