myHalo Grows as Automatic Fall Detection Becomes a Must-Have
Date:10/11/2011

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Oct. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- What if there's a fall, and you aren't able to press the button?

Halo Monitoring, provider of the first, wearable, medical alarm that sends an automatic alert- no need to push a button in the event of a fall reports an increasing demand for its automatic fall detection. More caregivers and families are responding to the growing evidence that traditional pendant medical alerts are not effective in the event of an emergency, and are looking for a more reliable solution like myHalo.

Roughly 40% of all seniors will fall each year.  In the U.S. alone, this accounts for 12 million seniors each year.  According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, falls account for 70% of the accidental deaths in the elderly population.

In the past, manually activated medical alarms or Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) have been available to address falls; however, it has been demonstrated that manual alarms are only activated in 1 out of 5 elderly falls.  In contrast, myHalo delivers the most accurate, reliable, and easy to use fall detection available.  Seniors are no longer required to press a button to signal for help.

Howard and Sue Long, who live in York, Pennsylvania, held a family meeting before deciding to get myHalo for Howard as a precaution. He's 84 and has undergone several hip replacements. "I'm pretty active and didn't think I needed it but my wife and our children insisted, especially with the constant risk of bad weather," says Long. "A few months after the system was activated, I fell while moving a piece of furniture.  The myHalo call center was on the phone in seconds making sure I was ok. That quick response convinced me and my family that myHalo was worth it."

"It's stories like Howard that continue to motivate us to be the best in what we do, says Halo Monitoring CEO, Chris Otto. "Our product really does save lives, and we continue to make technological advances to keep out in front of the market.  We want to continue to help families keep their loved ones safe, and better protected in their own homes, and there is no better way for us to do that than to continue putting out a superior product that offers families the best solution possible."
