iVi Intelligent Pendant is a small, discreet and lightweight, wearable device which allows the user to raise an alarm from anywhere in the home if they are in difficulty. It also automatically raises an alarm if a fall is detected.
It is beneficial for anyone who may need to request assistance or would benefit from the reassurance of fall detection. The iVi can offer peace of mind and an extra level of support to older people living independently. It is also ideal for individuals who have reduced mobility or stability, have recently been discharged from hospital or are living with long term medical conditions, such as epilepsy or diabetes.
The pendant has a help button which can be pressed to raise an alarm. This can be worn around the neck, on a belt or as a brooch using the attachments supplied. This sends a signal to the monitoring centre, via a Tunstall Lifeline home unit or other Tunstall compatible telecare system, where an alarm is raised to trigger appropriate action. The iVi provides an added layer of protection with fall detection - automatically a call for assistance is raised, even if the wearer is unable to push the help button. If the iVi detects a possible fall, the built-in LED will light up green and the alarm volume level will gradually increase. The wearer can cancel the alarm by pressing the button if no further action is required.
