If you’re an older adult — or care for someone who is — falling is likely to be high on your list of worries. And rightfully so, according to the National Council on Aging1:
Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in an emergency room for a fall-related injury.
Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for older Americans.
That’s why we’re excited to be able to fit our patients with the Starkey Livio AI hearing aids, the world’s first hearing aid with artificial intelligence and integrated sensors.
Using their built-in 3D sensors, Livio AI hearing aids can detect when a wearer falls, and send alert messages to selected friends or family members. Now, in addition to wearers enjoying the best sounding hearing aid ever, they and their loved ones can enjoy increased peace of mind, too!
How fall detection and alerts work
The hearing aid wearer selects up to three contacts to be notified if they fall.
They (or their hearing professional) can enter contacts easily into the Thrive Hearing app.
The auto alert feature automatically sends an alert to the contact(s) if the hearing aid wearer falls.
The alert contains the GPS location of the wearer.
The contact can then immediately call the wearer back to check on them or otherwise get them help.
The manual alert feature allows the wearer to simply tap their hearing aid to send an alert for a fall or non-fall related event.
