**NEW FALLS DETECTOR COMING SOON**
We will imminently be stocking the new 'Vibby' falls detector with our falls packages. These are latest addition to the telecare market from Tunstall. The Vibby currently comes with a black strap (it is also available with a neck cord), but four optional colours (red/blue/purple/dark blue) are being released soon.
What is the Vibby?
The Vibby is a sleek, contemporary and technologically advanced fall detector which can be worn on the wrist or around the neck. The Vibby will automatically raise an alert if it senses the user has fallen, and also enables the wearer to easily call for help manually.
Who is it for?
The Vibby can give confidence to anyone who is at risk of falling, such as:
• People with limited mobility
• Older people
• People with learning disabilities
• People with epilepsy
• People with diabetes
• People with conditions such as Parkinson’s Disease
How does it work?
Using an innovative algorithm and a new pressure sensor, the Vibby is designed to automatically detect a serious fall and raise an alert, either at the monitoring centre or on a carer pager. The wearer can also manually raise an alert by pressing the button on the face of the Vibby. Confirmation that an alert has been raised will be given by an LED light and vibration.
The cancellation of an alarm has also been improved, movement of the arm after a fall will no longer cancel the alarm. To cancel an alarm, the user must either stand up or cover the Vibby completely with their hand during the 20 second period after a fall is detected. The Vibby will stop vibrating to confirm the alert has been cancelled.
The Vibby is manufactured by Tunstall. For the full technical specification,please visit http://uk.tunstall.com/Uploads/Documents/Vibby%20Data%20Sheet.pdf
