LifeLink understands that people living with a disability want the same independence as everyone else. We also understand that each disability for each person is unique and comes with its own special needs. Therefore LifeLink can work with you to tailor a product and service bundle that best fits your requirements.
“I need assistance in getting out of bed, bathing, toileting and most daily activities. One day I slipped out of my wheelchair, when I was alone. I managed to press my pendant which alerted the Response Centre. The operator spoke to me over the speaker in the base alarm and she was able to call my carer, who came to my house and helped me. Luckily I avoided a potentially serious accident.”
Our team will work with you to develop a package of environmental and specialty care sensors that offer greater independence supported by round the clock access to our 24 hour response centre. Below are suggested bundles for your consideration.
To assist people with epilepsy the package includes night time bed sensor and a daytime falls detector. All sensors are tailored to each client’s individual needs, usual behaviours and activities to ensure an alert is only raised due to an unusual circumstance. For example, the fall sensor activates when a person goes from an upright position into a horizontal position for longer than 15 seconds.
To assist parents during the night, a bed sensor in the child’s bed can detect if the child suffers a seizure. The child’s bed sensor will alert the sleeping parents using a pager or a pillow shaker under the parent’s pillow.
To assist people with disabilities our sensors can detect if the person falls out of their wheelchair, or goes from an upright to horizontal position for a length period. All sensors are tailored to each client’s individual needs, usual behaviours and activities to ensure an alert is only raised due to an unusual circumstance. For example, the bed sensor activates if the person has left their bed for a longer than normal length of time. For mobility issues, our pneumatic switch makes getting help easier.
For people with limited hand function or strength, our Easy Press button makes getting help easier.
