Vibby Fall Detector

A wearable fall detection device.

Supporting residents at risk of falling

Vibby Fall Detector detects hard falls, raises an automatic alert, and allows users to manually call for help.

Providing extra confidence to people living independently

Vibby Fall Detector can be beneficial for those living with limited mobility or learning difficulties, plus older people and individuals experiencing long term health conditions such as epilepsy, diabetes, or Parkinson’s disease.

How does it work?

Using advanced technology, the Vibby automatically detects serious falls in the home using a pressure sensor. It immediately raises an alarm, via a Tunstall telecare hub, to a monitoring centre or a carer’s pager. The sensor, worn on either the wrist or on a pendant around the neck, works with an innovative algorithm, which measures loss of altitude and speed and can detect if a person falls from an upright position.

The wearer can also raise an alert directly from their device. Any alarm raised is confirmed via vibration and an LED light. In case of a false alarm, the alert can be cancelled by the wearer, by covering the sensor or standing up within 20 seconds.

In accordance with a recent announcement from the manufacturer of the Vibby, please ensure only Panasonic CR2477 replacement batteries are used, and that regardless of the low battery feature they are replaced in intervals no longer than 18 months as outlined on our updated datasheet.
