3D sensors record 2 minutes before and after the falls

Viewing these images provides additional elements of analysis to adapt treatment plans,

but also to make adjustments and limit the risk of a new fall.

The ISA solution goes beyond the simple detection of risky behavior. It allows you to view images of what happened before, during and after the fall in order to understand how it happened.

The fall sequences captured by ISA not only make it possible to refine the healthcare team’s thinking on what to put in place to limit the risk of falls, but also to explore better collaboration between healthcare professionals.

Understanding the causes of falls

ISA is therefore used in two temporal modalities: the time of the incident and the time of reflection.

The time of the incident

When a person falls, the priority is to act for the patient.

After installation and calibration of the system, everything happens automatically. Just pick up the service phone to find out in which room the fall occurred.

Time for analysis

Once the patient has been taken care of during the accident, the important thing is to prevent a relapse. For this, ISA offers two tools:

  1. A video recording. This makes it possible to set up fall analysis meetings for multidisciplinary teams. The teams can thus improve their practices and make a precise link between the incident and the patient’s medical condition.
  2. The automated register of falls (all falls are detected and collected in an Excel file). This allows the quality manager to monitor the evolution of the quality of care closely.

When an incident occurs, the register is accompanied by the sequences of each fall. In addition to being available via the webApp, they are also systematically sent by email to the department manager.

Practical example of a fall analysis

In this image produced by ISA, we can identify the bed colorized in green, the floor in blue and the patient in red.

Faced with this image, we find, for example, a physiotherapist, an occupational therapist, a nurse and the quality manager who analyze the entire sequence produced by ISA after a fall.

Each member of the team can, according to their professional skills, define the lines of work for a patient. The occupational therapist addresses the position of the furniture and the walker, the quality manager addresses the adequacy of the bed bars, the physiotherapist addresses the patient’s ability to get out of bed despite the bars, etc. …

L’importance du transfert de connaissances sur la chute

Better understand the pathology of your patient

In addition to reporting falls as soon as they occur, ISA sensors record 2 minutes before and after them. Thanks to these images, the workers will be able to understand the circumstances of the fall and personalize the management of the person.

Did the person fall while walking? By stooping or during a transfer? Was the walking aid positioned correctly?

Has this person shown signs of weakness? If so, at what level? What position did he/she fall into? What part of the body felt the brunt of the fall? In what position?

These are all questions that can be answered in the analysis of the sequences produced and that will make it possible to propose solutions, both for the care plans and for the adaptation of treatments.

Discover the advantages of a fall detector

Reduce the mental burden on caregivers

The goal of our fall detection system is to ensure patient safety by limiting professional burnout.

Improve the service of your institution

Autonomous and non-intrusive, this fall detection system can both reduce response times and analyze the context when an incident occurs.

Reassure patients / residents and their families

The vigilance of ISA sensors and the ability to analyze each fall can reassure families about the well-being of their loved ones.

Reduce time spent on the ground

Healthcare staff are notified in real time to reduce how long it takes to react and intervene

Analyze the causes of falls

The recordings 2 minutes before and after the fall provide tangible elements for analysis

Improve the quality of service
