Ac­tivePro­tec­tive smart belt

Hip pro­tec­tion for the el­derly

APC Australia - - Tech Brief -

If only clothes were a bit more like cars. No? Well, Ac­tivePro­tec­tive has cre­ated a belt de­signed to be worn by se­niors that has a “highly ac­cu­rate fall-in-progress de­tec­tion” sys­tem, which will de­ploy airbag-like pro­tec­tion around the hips to re­duce the im­pact taken on the hard floor. Not only will it help pre­vent in­jury, it will give the el­derly wearer more con­fi­dence to move around, which will be good for their health and well­be­ing!
