SATECH Inc. today announced that its patented SmartCells® fall protection flooring will be highlighted in the Idea House exhibit at the annual conference of the American Association of Home and Services for the Aging.
“We’re honored to be a part of this prestigious event to demonstrate the latest in fall protection flooring technology to help prevent fall-related injuries,” said Bryce Betteridge, president of SATECH. “Not only will our fall protection flooring help provide a safer environment for indoor living spaces, it also is easily customized for outdoor surfaces.”
The 2010 AAHSA Idea House is an interactive exhibit at the center of the stage show floor, with more than 5,000 square feet of outdoor and indoor living space, it showcases the latest designs that optimize vibrant aging in place, using innovation technology and eco-conscious design. The annual conference attracts more than 8,000 attendees.
The SmartCells technology creates a remarkable dual-stiffness fall protection flooring solution that does not impair balance by providing a stable surface for normal activities that softens under impact to provide fall- impact protection. The new SmartCells structures are not only optimized to provide effective solutions for both preventing falls and protecting individuals from serious fall-related injuries, but also
provide fatigue relief for caregivers. The SmartCells cushioned flooring technology is the subject of a variety of clinical studies to further quantify its many benefits as fall protection flooring to reduce risk and liability for long-term care providers.
