Falls are inevitable. And they can significantly affect your finances. The financial burden of falls in regards to medical costs, according to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, totals more than $50 billion annually. That means about 800,000 patients a year are hospitalized due to a fall-related injury. That means, when broken down, one out of five falls can cause a serious injury resulting in hospitalization, typically a broken bone or a traumatic brain injury.
To make matters worse, costs and ramifications associated with falling are not just a one-time deal, they often create lifelong ripples. In fact, most people who fall develop a fear of it happening again. This cognitive strain greatly impacts their mobility and independence to move around, which can result in the need to seek further care.
According to the Genworth Cost of Care Survey, an estimated median annual cost for hands-on, 24-hour senior care services is a whopping $183,960. As for the costs associated with private-room nursing communities, the average is roughly $100,375 annually.
Here at SATECH, Inc., we know that falls are going to happen, but we believe that injuries don’t have to. Our goal is to help your facility or loved-one take action and proactively seek out a solution before a costly fall occurs. This is why we have engineered a highly-effective cushioned flooring technology for preventing fall-related injuries.
Our SmartCells Technology is optimized to be both stable AND cushioned. The patented design provides a supportive surface that won’t impair balance or gait, but that also gets softer under impact to reduce up to 90% of the force related to a fall. This creates the perfect balance of support and cushion for more independence and a minimized risk of fall-related injuries.
We believe that Life Shouldn’t Hurt. That goes for your family and financial stability.
