Medical Alert Fall Detection Devices
Why do you need medical alert Fall Detection Devices for seniors? Because falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for older Americans.
According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention:
• One in four Americans aged 65+ falls each year
• Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall; every 19 minutes, a senior dies from a fall
• Falls are the leading cause of fatal injury and the most common cause of non-fatal trauma-related hospital admissions among older adults
