Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!
Did you know that falling is the leading cause of accidental deaths for individuals over the age of 65? MyNotifi is a fall detection technology that can help individuals of all abilities live more independently. According to the product’s website, “MyNotifi is the only product on the market that offers you the choice of where and how you wear your device.” It comes with both a wristband and a belt clip for more flexibility in different situations.Other features of MyNotifi include:
- No landline required, no monthly fees and no contract
- No button to push to receive help in case of a fall – the technology uses an algorithm to detect falls
- However, users can request help in any situation by pressing the red button
- Waterproof design
- MyNotifi Fall Detection devices sync seamlessly with either a smartphone or the MyNotifi Hub.
