Halo Monitoring - fall detection

According to a report by the University of Cambridge (England) Institute of Public Health, traditional panic button alarms are activated in only 20 percent of all fall incidents. That’s why Halo Monitoring developed the myHalo system, which automatically detects serious health issues, and alerts care givers via text message, email or telephone.

The waterproof product is available in clip-on and a strap-on form factors. Both provide fall detection and activity monitoring, but the version that wraps around the chest also monitors heart rate and skin temperature. myHalo can track sleep and wake patterns, according to vice president of business development Pamela Martin, so caretakers can respond to unusual activities such as non-movement and restless nights.

No PC or Internet access is required of the system which, by default, transmits reports over the phone lines every six hours. Monitoring is $49 per month for the myHalo Clip and $59 for the strap-on myHalo Complete.
