There is a high proportion of elderly people who live alone and the proportion rises recently. The accident occurs the most when the elderly stay at home alone is falling. When they fall over , nobody knows they get hurt or take them to hospital which causes the treatment delay and fear.
I – Helper can detect when the elderly fall, promptly inform related units and help the elderly who still can move to sit up or stand up. I-Helper can be there and keep the elderly accompany before the paramedics arrived and ease their fear of falling.
And there are cases on both sides of I – Helper, so patient can get the First-aid medicine immediately.
