Fall Detection and Monitoring System

Home » Products » Fall Detection and Monitoring System

Introducing the Tek-CARE750 Fall Detection and Monitoring System. TekTone now offers fall detection and monitoring integrated with the Tek-CARE nurse and emergency call systems using sensing by Vayyar.

Millions of senior Americans fall each year. One out of five will sustain a serious injury, and over 800,000 will be hospitalized because of those injuries. The cost to the healthcare system because of these falls totaled more than $50 billion.

Fall prevention has become critical in many healthcare facilities. The Tek-CARE750 Fall Detection and Monitoring System offers unique technology to not only detect a fall but also provide data on anomalies in behavior.

UNNOTICEABLE

One of the best features of the Tek-CARE750 system is that it is almost unnoticeable to residents and/or patients. It uses no cameras, which is a big concern for residents and patients who feel like cameras are an invasion of their privacy. It uses no wearables and requires no button pushes. Additional features include:

  • Camera-free RF sensors
  • Ensures rapid response to falls
  • Supports person-centered care
  • Reduces staff workload
  • Touchless technology
  • Operates in all lighting conditions
  • Machine Learning AI
  • Concealed installation

OFFERS PROTECTION

The Tek-CARE750 system monitors resident or patient activities using low-frequency radio waves. These radio waves monitor the entire square footage of the room. This means that the system can report across multiple areas seamlessly. It can track when one gets out of bed, when they enter the restroom, if they are in their living space, and if they are excessively wandering.

PEACE OF MIND

Another great benefit that the Tek-CARE750 Fall Detection and Monitoring System offers is peace of mind for caregivers, residents, and their loved ones. The Tek-CARE750 enables care providers to improve operations by ensuring rapid response to falls, supporting person-centered care and reducing staff workload.

Ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) are health care facilities that offer patients the convenience of having surgeries and procedures performed safely outside the hospital setting. This trend in healthcare is a growing new market and TekTone has designed our systems to offer valuable nurse and emergency call capabilities to ASC patients.

ASC

Continuing Care Retirement Communities (CCRC), also known as Life Plan Communities, are designed for seniors who are currently living independently, but want the safety and security of being cared for as they age without having to relocate. As a resident’s health declines, he or she may transition from an independent living residence to assisted living, to an intermediate or skilled nursing facility—all on one campus. TekTone offers systems specialized in adapting to the changing needs of CCRCs, while keeping resident’s safety and security a top priority.

CCRC

A skilled nursing facility (nursing home, convalescent home, care home or rest home) provides a place of residence for those who require continuous nursing attention. Services available in skilled nursing facilities include assistance of nurses, nursing aides and assistants; physical, occupational and speech therapists; social workers, recreational assistants; and living space. In some instances, residents may reside in skilled nursing facilities to receive rehabilitation or other therapy following an illness or accident.

SKILLED NURSING

Assisted living / independent living facilities usually have a campus-wide call system so a resident can notify caregivers by initiating a call from a personal pendant or emergency button press/pull. The systems specified for these types of facilities are usually referred to as emergency call systems or personal emergency response systems. Call system requirements in assisted/independent living vary, but may be mandatory in some states. Assisted living facilities may prefer a combination of Tek-CARE wireless and wired technology, with pull-cord stations, call buttons and wireless pendants to ensure staff members are notified efficiently and quickly.

ASSISTED LIVING

Nurse call systems for hospitals, microhospitals and cancer centers must offer more than the ability for a patient to call for a nurse. These systems are now about total solutions to improving facility performance. Performance is identified as improving efficiency in terms of facility goals (rounding, reducing time to answer calls, tracking staff performance using metrics), improving staff satisfaction, and improving patient satisfaction.
