Kami Vision announces Fall Detect by KamiCare, an AI fall detection and assistance system available at home that does not require a wearable or pull alarm. Fall Detect by KamiCare helps detect and prevent senior fall risk by using affordable vision AI, two-way audio, private verification of incidents, and more.
“Over 75% of adults ages 50 and older want to remain in their homes for as long as possible. They report feeling safer and more secure in the comfort of their home. At the same time, their families want additional layers of protection in place when it comes to fall risk,” said Yamin Durrani, CEO of Kami Vision. “Fall Detect is an integral service to protect seniors and provide greater autonomy. We’re empowering the age-in-place movement, helping improve the health and safety of loved ones, while respecting their privacy. Through it all we’re supporting caregivers who are often part of the sandwich generation caring for their own children, and working full time while also caring for aging parents.”
Fall Detect by KamiCare supports caregivers by addressing the number one risk to seniors – falls. The solution supercharges caregivers’ existing capabilities with technology to be their “eyes and ears on the ground,” extending touch points even if they’re not physically present. Fall Detect enables more effective and efficient care, which means caregivers have peace of mind knowing their loved ones are safe.
The Fall Detect by KamiCare subscription includes multiple sensors that enable family members, friends, or caregivers to be instantly alerted when falls are detected, mobilizing teams to coordinate care. Additionally, Fall Detect identifies “intentional lowering” – a major precursor and warning sign of a dangerous fall – that often occurs with activities like putting on slippers or picking up an object from the floor. And the technology can illuminate potential issues, including obstacles in walking paths, to supplement fall intervention planning.
In this way, caregivers can detect falls before they happen and implement changes to prevent them such as physical therapy, medication adjustments or lowering beds.
