FALL PROTECTION SOLUTIONS

SmartCells Fall Protection flooring solutions provide a firm, stable surface that absorbs 90% of impact forces; drastically reducing the chance of serious injuries.

The Issue:

  • Annually, 1 in 25 older people in residential aged care settings sustain a hip fracture
  • 1/3rd of hip fracture patients were living in a nursing home at the time of the fracture
  • Approximately, 20% of older adults hospitalized for a hip fracture die within a year and about 50% will suffer a major decline in independence

DATA, RESEARCH, INFO

SmartCells® Solution:

SmartCells® Fall Protection technology is available as: fall protection mats, fall protection, custom flooring, and build-your-own fall protection mats / flooring.

SmartCells® bedside fall protection mats and flooring provide the security of being there when you can’t be to reduce the likelihood of fall-related injuries. The SmartCells® patented, dual-stiffness structure becomes softer under impact while at the same time providing stability for balance-impaired persons and care-givers.

HOW SMARTCELLS WORK:

SC-Tech-icon-1.1

SUPPORT

SmartCells® Anti-Fatigue Mat technology products have a “resting state” – much like a non-compressed spring – with a natural, supportive, upright force that provides a compressible, soft surface that is also stable and supportive.

CUSHION

SmartCells® Anti-Fatigue Mat technology products have a “resting state” – much like a non-compressed spring – with a natural, supportive, upright force that provides a compressible, soft surface that is also stable and supportive.

SC-Tech-icon-3.1

ENERGY RETURN

Like miniature springs, SmartCells® Anti-Fatigue floor mats and products store impact energy until pressure is reduced or eliminated. The SmartCells® resilient rubber material and structure work “in-phase” with body movements to actively rebound, releasing their stored energy back into the body.

ADDITIONAL CONSIDERATION:

Color: For, some persons with dementia, a black mat will appear to be a hole in the ground, and will make them fearful. For this situation, consideration of a mat color is appropriate. SmartCells® bedside mats are available in grey, tan, and black.
