1/3 of seniors 65+ will fall each year
More than 45% of those falls happen outside the home
In addition to Medical Alert Systems with Fall Detection MobileHelp offers the following services to protect against falls and keep you healthy.
Exercise increases muscle tone and balance – thereby reducing the risk of falls and improving health and well-being. Stepping outside on a daily basis goes hand-in-hand with good health. According to one study, people who went outside on a daily basis are less likely to have a wide variety of health problems like chronic pain or sleep disorders and remained more active than those who remain indoors.
50% falls occur due to Medication Errors. Missed doses of medication are the most common error.

MobileHelp Medication Reminders is an important proactive health management service to protect against falls.
Proactive Health Management
From the CDC: Many people who fall, even if they're not injured, become afraid of falling. This fear may cause a person to cut down on their everyday activities. When a person is less active, they become weaker and this increases their chances of falling.
Our Impact: We give seniors the confidence to be active and maintain muscle tone and balance. Help is always a button press away or even automatic for most falls when using MobileHelp's medical alert systems with fall detection.
MobileVitals: Chronic disease mgmt. requires vitals monitoring- such as blood pressure and weight management, medication adherence and/or activity management.
Current industry research supports that the visualization of health related trends like activity, weight, and other vitals monitoring can encourage people to achieve their short- and long-term goals to live healthier lives.
