The Vibby fall sensor is the new generation of wrist-worn automatic fall detector. The enhanced reliability and the new design protects vulnerable people of any age. It is designed to be used with the TeleAlarm TA74 carephone, and will automatically call for help when a fall is detected or the manual activation button is pressed.
Reliable help in case of emergency
The fall detector is equipped with an emergency call button which is identified by tactile raised dots. The detector enables the automatic triggering of an alarm in the event of a heavy fall.*
The fall detector recognises a heavy fall and undertakes an analysis of this. After 20 seconds, the watch begins to flash and vibrate (also for 20 seconds). This provides reassurance to the user that the fall has been recognised. During this time the alarm can still be cancelled. If not cancelled, the alarm is triggered and transmitted to the TeleAlarm Carephone.
In order to cancel an alarm, the user can either stand up within the first 20 seconds or cancel the pre-alarm by covering the watch with their hand for 2 seconds. As soon as the vibration stops, the hand can be removed. This ensures a false alarm can be avoided.
The Vibby is more than a fall detector, it’s also a radio transmitter linked to a TeleAlarm Carephone. That means an improved safety experience for the user who can trigger an alarm in an emergency.
The Fall Detector enables Optimised Fall Recognition
The fall detector, via a series of sensors and a powerful algorithm, analyses movements, recognises a heavy fall and triggers an alarm. If a user loses balance and needs help, although no fall has been recognised, he or she can manually trigger an alarm at any time via the emergency call button.
Highly Comfortable to Wear
The fall detector is worn comfortably on the wrist just like a watch and doesn’t impede the user’s hand movements. The plastic from which the fall detector is made is waterproof, as well as being hypoallergenic. The technical features of the fall detector are also impressive: the battery doesn’t need to be charged and the maximum transmission range in a free field is 300 metres. The battery is replaceable and has an up to 2 years battery life.
*The Vibby fall detector is an intelligent, manual alarm system that in some cases ensures an additional measure of protection insofar as the user is not in a position to trigger the alarm themselves. The Vibby fall detector has been developed to recognise heavy / dangerous falls automatically (sudden and quick loss of balance followed by the heavy impact of the body on the ground). A heavy fall means that the wearer remains in a lying position and is not able to get back into an upright position. Not every type of fall can be recognised and interpreted by the technology based on automatic fall recognition.
