How Mobile Pendant Fall Detection Works

Fall Detection


The Acadian Mobile Pendant uses an accelerometer and a proprietary algorithm to recognize a fall based on its speed, direction and impact.

Acadian Mobile employs proprietary false alarm rejection for maximum accuracy.

Emergency Operator


Acadian On Call notifies the user over the speaker that a fall was detected and that an operator will connect with them shortly.

The Mobile Pendant sends a signal to a care specialist at the monitoring center.

Locate with GPS


A care specialist speaks with the user via two-way voice, locates the user and sends help.

The operator can stay on the line with the user until help arrives.

Medical Symbol


Help arrives for the user and the user’s emergency contacts are notified.

NOTE: User should wear the mobile pendant high on the chest on top of the sternum for accurate fall detection.
