My Story - MyNotifi Helped Me, and I Didn’t Even Fall

My Story - MyNotifi Helped Me, and I Didn’t Even Fall

Help, I haven’t fallen….but I need HELP!   I’m not normally someone who likes to ask for help, or even talk about my health. My personal business is my personal business. But, I have to tell you about this one time that I had to admit I really needed help, and what happened after. So, about a year ago, I fell. It just happened one time, and I didn’t think much of it. But my wife sure worried about me, so when she heard about MyNotifi automatic fall detection and help device, she got me one. It’s a tiny gadget that clips to my belt, and most of the time I forget I even have it on. Well, last week I was having some back problems. I was sitting on my recliner with a heati..

In Celebration of The First Day of Fall, Fall Prevention is On Our Mind

In Celebration of The First Day of Fall,  Fall Prevention is On Our Mind

Falls are a dangerous health epidemic, particularly among our aging population. So, when we learned that the National Council on Aging has designated the first day of fall (September 22nd) as National Fall Prevention Awareness Day, we wanted  to spread the word. You see, at MyNotifi headquarters, fall prevention and fall protection is always on our mind. MyNotifi has spent the past few years perfecting an automatic fall detection wearable technology designed to alert family and friends if a fall occurs. But, MyNotifi is more than just fall detection. The MyNotifi app can also guide the wearer through a series of movements and range-of-motion training videos to potentially decreas..

Staying Independent After a Fall

Staying Independent After a Fall

At 82, my mom had fallen twice before, so she was careful to avoid unnecessary risks. When she needed something from a high shelf, she asked my dad to get it for her. She drove, rather than walked most places. So when she fell for the third time, it took all of us completely by surprise.  “It wasn’t like I was out climbing Mount Everest,” mom recalled. “I was walking from the parking lot into the library”. She fell on her way to the front door. My mom’s biggest fear had always been falling if she was at home alone.  “This was in the middle of the day, in a public place,” she told me. “You’d think it would be easy to get help.” But Mom was on the ground for hours before so..

After the Fall: How to Stay Safe Until Help Arrives

After the Fall: How to Stay Safe Until Help Arrives

As we age, falling becomes a bigger fear and it’s not unrealistic to be concerned. Studies show that one in four people between 65 and 74 will fall each year. That number goes up to one in three for people 75+. And if you’ve fallen once, your odds are increased for falling again. Falling can lead to serious injuries, loss of independence and costly medical bills. When you’re unable to get up or get help quickly, that “long lie” makes the situation even more dangerous. Untended injuries, dehydration, anxiety and elevated blood pressure increase the risks that a fall will lead to hospitalization, nursing home admission, and even death. But there are some things you can do to keep you..
