Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look
at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to
help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or
other special needs!
Did you know that falling is the leading cause of accidental
deaths for individuals over the age of 65? MyNotifi is a fall
detection technology that can help individuals of all abilities
live more independently.
According to the product's website, "MyNotifi is the only
product on the market that offers you the choice of where and how
you wear your device." It comes with both a wristband and a
belt clip for more flexibility in different situations.
Other features of MyNotifi include:
No landline required, no monthly fees and no contract
No button to push to receive help in case of a fall - the
technology uses an algorithm to detect falls
However, users can request help in any situation by pressing
the red button
MyNotifi Fall Detection devices sync seamlessly with either a
smartphone or the MyNotifi Hub.
