Fall Protection Solutions

Falls happen. Injuries don’t have to.

Falls are common. They happen frequently.

Statistics show that 25% of Americans over the age of 65 fall every year. Every 11 seconds an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall. Every 19 minutes an older adult dies from a fall. These statistics seem grim, but there’s a solution. The key is to think ahead and be proactive. That's why we engineered SmartCells® fall protection mats and flooring.
Save Money & Decrease Worry

Avoid Financial and Emotional Damage

According to research, not only do fall-related expenses total more than $50 billion annually, but most people who fall develop a fear of it happening again. This cognitive strain greatly impacts their mobility and independence. It also increases the risk of recurrent falls.

Stay Protected

Gain Independence and Peace of Mind

Vulnerable people should have the assurance that they’ll be protected in the event of a fall. Confidence is the single best way to avoid falling in the first place. We believe in strengthening a person’s natural gait and mobility by giving them the confidence to live their lives.

Engineered for Mobility

Seamless Support for Those in Your Care

Manufactured from durable rubber and engineered based on valid, time-tested research, SmartCells Fall Protection solutions effectively reduce injuries from falls. The key is a stable supportive surface that doesn’t impair balance, walking, or common rolling loads.

Suited for Every Environment

Customizable Solutions for Any Setting

We understand that everyone’s situation is unique. SmartCells Fall Protection systems are available in pre-sized mats, wall-to-wall flooring, and custom applications to best meet the needs of the environment. Our solutions are constructed of 100% rubber, which means that they will not absorb liquids, effectively reducing the risk of infection and contamination.

Our Solution

SmartCells Fall Protection flooring solutions provide a cushioned but stable surface that absorbs up to 90% of impact forces in the event of a fall. This drastically reduces the chance of serious injuries. From cushioned flooring to fall protection mats, SmartCells are designed to provide confidence and protection.

Improve Resident Safety

SmartCells prevent fall-related injuries by off-loading 90% of impact forces

Enhance Independence

SmartCells products will not impair balance or gait, and they reduce the fear of falling

Reduce Stress on Staff

SmartCells products are easy to clean, support rolling loads, and reduce standing fatigue

Easy to Install and Maintain

Easy to Install and Maintain

SmartCells can be installed as a standalone system or a cushioned subfloor. Virtually indistinguishable from regular flooring, they can be custom-fit to any space for complete wall-to-wall coverage. The flooring is “edge-bound” which creates a continuous non-trip surface. Not only will those in your care avoid injuries, but the flooring is engineered to reduce the fatigue of caretakers as well.

Our mats are made of one solid piece of molded rubber. This creates a seamless, non-porous surface. In a setting where everyday spills are commonplace, an easily cleaned solution is essential.

Designed to Protect Everyone

Designed to Protect Everyone

SmartCells provide safety and security when you can’t be there to prevent a fall. The unique, patented cushioning technology in our mats and flooring becomes softer under impact. The solid structure provides stability for balance impaired persons and caregivers to proactively prevent fall-related injuries.

Low Profile. High Protection.

Low Profile. High Protection.

SmartCells fall protection mats and flooring range from ½ to 1 inch thick. The slim profile reduces tripping and makes normal movements like walking, wheeling, and transferring uninhibited. Even with the slim design, SmartCells protects from impact forces up to 5 times better than mats that are twice as thick.

How SmartCells Works

Stable Support: Optimized for Human Performance

SmartCells® Fall Protection technology has a “resting state” – much like a non-compressed spring – with a natural, supportive, upright force that does not impair balance or mobility.

Cushion on Impact: The More Force, the Softer it Becomes

SmartCells® Fall Protection Products compress and absorb pressure/impact energy from standing, weight-shifting, walking, or from the impact of a fall. After reaching a “critical threshold” the cellular structures soften and collapse laterally, without bottoming out.

Return Energy: In Phase with Your Natural Movement

Like miniature springs, SmartCells® Fall Protection 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, relieving joint aches and pains..
