Medical Nurse Training, Inc and SaferFalls.com Announce New Products and Technologies to Save Lives in Healthcare Facilities and for Senior Care at Home.

(PRWEB) January 26, 2010 -- New inexpensive technologies by Safer Falls.com significantly reduce the risk of falls and protect against the effect of falls particularly in the population now approaching 60 and above. New personal use technologies that are relatively unknown to some in the medical field, and more often the public can easily eliminate these preventable injuries and deaths. The National Center for Patient Safety recently recommended the use of these new approaches to be used in treating patients whom are at high risk.

Patrick Devaney, Founder of Medical Nurse Training, Inc; discusses the necessity of such products when dealing with an elderly person who is at risk for falls in Long Term Care Facilities or in-home. “Many people who try to convalesce at home from hip fractures and head injuries don’t fully recover. There are some new affordable devices that can prevent these injuries from ever occurring.” Mr. Devaney goes on about how each device can be necessary for care and each individual’s unique situation in the accompanying video.
      
Medical Nurse Training, Inc. provides the latest on-line training to Doctors and Nurses on fall prevention and protection. This includes in-house education on devices that will reduce injury from falls and related deaths and on-line education for those concerned about falls at home.

Hip Protectors – High Impact – absorbing pads that help protect hip bones against injury from falls. About 320,000 people suffer a hip fracture every year. These pads are built into briefs, panties, sweat pants and sweat shorts. They can easily be laundered and re-used numerous times to help protect from falls. The use of these devices has been clinically proven to reduce injury. Many individuals that experience a fall are afraid to continue normal activities like walking. These devices help these people resume a normal life. Hip Fracture is one of the number one causes of death in older individuals. Our experience shows that hip protectors are generally not known by the general public

Fall Alarms – Inexpensive bed and chair exit electronic monitors otherwise known as Fall Alarms, assist with the observation of patients and family members to help reduce falls and the potential for elopement from home or a facility. A variety of sensor accessories may be used including toileting sensors, bed/chair sensors, infrared sensors and self releasing sensors may be attached to the monitor to reduce risk. These alarms include a gentle voice reminder not to get up without assistance.

Floor Cushions and Bath Mats – Certain areas of the home are very high risk for injury from falls like the bathroom. Special floor cushions and bath mats are designed to help reduce the impact from a fall and are frequently talked about in the clinical literature. These floor cushions are tri-fold in design, making them convenient to carry to areas requiring the most immediate protection. Bathrooms are also very high risk zones. The sure step bath mat can be used to significantly reduce the impact of a fall.

A complete list of Fall Prevention Products and availability and Clinical Resources are available at www.SaferFalls.com. Fall Prevention and Protection Training Programs are available at www.MedicalNurseTraining.com.
