Safety Alarm Cushion / Sensing mat

Safety Alarm Cushion
Safety Alarm Cushion

In recent years, the percentage of isolated seniors has increased significantly. Unable to seek emergency assistance, their accidental falls too often result in eventual deaths. The Safety Alarm Cushion is here to act on their safety’s behalf; upon detecting sudden impact, the alarm will set off and begin the countdown. If the alarm fails to be turned off within the time frame, it shall proceed to notifying both the emergency contact and nearest hospital of the fallen senior’s location.
