AI-powered solution provides personalized, privacy-centric fall prevention that reduces resident falls by up to 96%
PEORIA, Ill. May 6, 2022 – VirtuSense Technologies, an artificial intelligence (AI) solution that detects and prevents falls before they occur, announced that the company’s VSTAlert solution is now available for senior living communities.
Leveraging machine vision and an algorithm that learns residents’ habits, VSTAlert can detect high fall-risk residents exiting a bed or chair 30-65 seconds in advance, giving care teams time to intervene before a fall. This fall prevention solution, used primarily in skilled nursing facilities, has reduced patient falls with injury by up to 96%.
To meet the unique needs of senior living communities and the independent residents who live there, VirtuSense’s VSTAlert includes these essential features:
- Privacy-Centric 24/7 Monitoring. HIPAA-compliant, LIDAR sensors detect movement without intrusive cameras, protecting the privacy of residents. The system monitors 100% autonomously through its AI-powered vision, not human view. Residents do not need to wear alarm devices or panic buttons, which are a nuisance and can be easily misplaced.
- Flexible Monitoring for Optimal Coverage. Custom monitoring schedules safeguard the autonomy of senior living residents. The solution can be customized to monitor both high and low fall-risk residents.
- Powerful Monitoring with Discreet Alerting. Alerting system sends notifications directly to the designated staff members’ mobile devices, eliminating loud alarms and flashing lights that can be distressing for residents.
- Data to Drive Fall-Prevention Decisions. The solution keeps a log of each notification and alert, enabling staff to make data-driven decisions to adjust the appropriate modes for each resident’s monitoring needs.
“Falls are one of the most common and harmful risks to seniors, and VirtuSense is committed to arming senior living communities with tools that best protect their residents,” said Deepak Gaddipati, founder and chief technology officer at VirtuSense. “We are proud of the work we have done to customize our proven fall-prevention technology to meet the unique privacy and safety needs of independent seniors.”
