Essence SmartCare launched MDsense fall protection

HERZLIYA, Israel—Current fall detection solutions suffer from inaccuracy and lack of reliability with a high ratio of false alarms reported by major service providers as the greatest pain point in dealing with senior falls. 

“Current fall monitoring systems leave the responsibility for alerting carers about a fall to the resident,” Dr. Haim Amir, Essence Group founder and CEO said in the announcement.

In response, Essence SmartCare, part of Essence Group, creators of a new telecare approach that creates safer living environments for seniors and vulnerable people, announced the launch of MDsense, a multi-dimensional fall detection solution that provides whole resident fall protection by monitoring events using only wall-mounted intelligent sensors rather than wearable devices. The solution enables caregivers to react quicker to verified falls while maintaining resident’s complete privacy. MDsense has no wire or video or sound function; operates seamlessly 24/7; works in light or dark rooms; is waterproof; and can differentiate between multiple people and pets. 

“MDsense enables independence and is always there, ready to support when needed, offering real peace of mind for both the cared-for and the carer,” Amir said. “With this global launch we now provide complete fall protection in every room, which current, classic telecare solutions cannot provide.” 

Building on current and evolving digital telecare solutions, MDsense is part of Essence’s Care@Home, a complete, certified, cloud-connected, advanced telecare solution. Care@Home uses AI and machine learning to continuously collect actionable data to ensure ongoing learning, enabling accurate, rapid response to fall events, better care management and more positive outcomes. 

“Essence is proud to be leading the market with this breakthrough, which will give our customers such a precise and secure way to make residents safer,” Barak Katz, general manager at Essence SmartCare, said. “Our vision at Essence SmartCare is to use technology to make lives better. We believe that our multi-dimensional technology will make the walls of care facilities smarter, and ultimately, make the home safer, allowing seniors and vulnerable people to live longer, better, with fewer worries about falling, which impact their freedom and self-esteem.”
