Hip Hope Technologies is a pioneer offering the first commercially available active fall protection device for elderly and people at high risk of hip fractures. Focused initially on users who have undergone fall related fractures the company has already begun selling its system in Israel, Europe and Canada. The company is getting ready to launch in the USA and is looking for early adopters.
Hip-Hope™ is a smart wearable device, designed as a belt, worn around the user’s waist. A proprietary multi-sensor system detects impending collision with the ground.
Upon detection, two large-size airbags instantly inflate and protect the wearer’s hips. Fall alert notifications can be automatically sent to pre-defined destinations.
Hip-Hope’s proprietary and patented sensor fusion allows high detection rates of true falls and extremely low FAR.
Hip-Hope’s belt is lightweight, comfortable and can serve as an advanced monitoring aid for its users, their caregivers and loved ones.
