The Slip and Fall detector of Xeoma video surveillance software can be used for both private and commercial use. Accordingly, the goals of use can be different: from business-strategic to government. More information below:
The slip and Fall detector can automate patients care in hospitals, as well as guard your safety in smart home systems

Safer home: Often, elderly people live alone, and they even have no one to call for help if they suddenly feel unwell. Falls are one of the top health risks for older people: in the US 3 million people visit emergency rooms each year for fall-related injuries, with one in five falls resulting in bone fractures or head injuries.

The Slip and Fall detector installed in old people’s home immediately detects a person’s fall and sends an alarm about the incident to the responsible personnel. If you integrate the Slip and Fall detector with the “smart home” system, the detector can call an ambulance and notify relatives in case of the incident.

Also, the Slip and Fall detector will become an indispensable helper in monitoring patients in hospitals: many patients are not allowed to get out of bed after a serious surgery or for other medical reasons due to the weakened body and the raised chances of fainting and falling. If an incident occurs, the Slip and Fall Detector will immediately notify the nurse or other responsible personnel, which will help to provide the patient with the necessary assistance and thus minimize the consequences of the incident.

The Slip and Fall detector can be used in any business/enterprise/government organization where managers are concerned about the welfare of their employees and visitors and make an effort to minimize the risks to their health.

Download and run Xeoma in Trial mode. Connect the “Slip and Fall detector” module in the chain directly to the camera or after the filter modules.

In the settings of the “Slip and Fall detector” module, choose the monitored area. You can also tick the box “Also react to incomplete falls” – in this case, the system will work, for example, when someone lost consciousness and, leaning against the wall, slowly slid down or if a person slipped and fell from a small height. Falls from chair will also be detected by the module!
