These days, people are living a lot longer. The older we get the more susceptible we are to accidents in the home. The PERs-2440A medical alert Linear security system can help you keep your independent lifestyle and give you piece of mind should any type of emergency arise by responding to a variety of emergencies quickly and effectively.
One of the most serious problems affecting otherwise healthy seniors is falling. It has become a major medical problem. Most of the seniors I know have fallen in their homes, some with serious injuries. About one-third of the senior population over 65 falls each year with the risk of falling increasing with age. By age 80 over 50% of seniors have falls. Each year, 2.5 million seniors are treated in emergency departments for fall injuries. This accounts for a whopping 25% of all hospital admissions. Over 700,000 patients a year are hospitalized due to a fall injury, most often because of a head injury or hip fracture. Falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries. Altogether falls result in medical costs of over $30 billion every year, averaging around $19,000 per person.
Almost half of the seniors that fall cannot get up without help. The quicker help arrives, the better the outcome for the person that has fallen. With these kind of odds it makes sense not only to have a 24-hour personal medical alert system but one that is able to get the help you need as quickly as possible. But the medical alert Linear security system does far more than protect you in medical emergencies.
