Push button emergency alarm
At the touch of a button, Buddi will alert the 24/7 emergency monitoring centre. The UK based team will immediately contact the person you look after on their buddi. If they cannot be reached, the monitoring team will endeavour to alert you or other registered emergency contacts. Also, as an optional extra, the technology allows buddi to work abroad when someone is on holiday (contact customer care for advice).
The fall alert works fully automatically, so even if someone is incapacitated as a result of a fall the system still works without having to be activated by hand. A sensor called an accelerometer inside the wristband measures the changes in movement that result from a fall. If a fall is detected, it raises the alert with buddi’s 24/7 Emergency Monitoring Centre who then attempt to make contact with the wearer. If unsuccessful, they will then alert the other registered emergency contacts. The wristband will vibrate and flash blue when alerting. You can cancel an alert by pressing the buttons.
Through using the latest satellite navigation (GPS) technology, Buddi can accurately locate someone – any time, any place, anywhere. So no one is confined to their home, like other fall alarms. Buddi enables independent minded individuals, to make no compromises; they can simply get on with living life, wherever it takes them, and enjoy being out and about without any restrictions.
24/7 emergency monitoring – Personal attention
As well as utilising the very latest technology, buddi operates a fully staffed Emergency Monitoring Centre in the UK where trained operators are on hand 24/7, 365 days of the year, to react to emergency alerts and inform registered contacts of emergencies so that they can provide assistance.
Activity and sleep
Buddi can monitor activity during the day and sleep patterns at night, which are indicators of good health. The graphs help to identify sleep patterns and monitor restless sleep and night-time activity. High and low levels of activity during the day, or during the week, are easy to see. You can also set your personal step counting goals and receive notifications when you achieve them.
