Accessibility Minute - Assistive Technology Tips and Tricks for Everyone

Mar 25, 2022

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!

Last week I talked about Vayyar Care, which is a fall detection system that works exclusively with Amazon Alexa and the Alexa Together subscription service.  Another Alexa compatible fall detection device is SkyAngelCare.

SkyAngelCare is a fall detection pendant that can be worn around the user's neck.  If the device detects a fall, OR if the user presses the SOS button, Alexa will automatically call the Urgent Response emergency helpline and notify a designated caregiver, ensuring a loved one gets the help they need.

Other features include:

  • Waterproof fall detection pendant that can be worn while showering or taking a bath
  • Uses WiFi so pendant must be in WiFi to work
  • Requires Alexa Together subscription service
  • Automatic software updates so as new features are released, you'll receive them automatically
  • And more

Check it out on Amazon's website to learn more!
