Active seniors make up a large portion of the senior population. According to the AARP, there will be more people over the age of 65 by 2035 in the U.S. than under 18. But what constitutes an active senior? The definition of an “active” older adult has changed over the past few decades. Where it used to be about activities which required little to no physical activity, seniors are now re-learning hobbies and participating in more athletic events whether they’re mild or more vigorous. As more seniors become active for longer periods of time, they are able to stay healthier, extend their lifespan and increase their overall wellbeing.
Added Peace of Mind
Another key factor in boosting active senior morale is the Numera Libris 2 mobile personal emergency response system (mPERS) device. The key word here is “mobile” because the advanced technology within the Libris 2 helps keep track of the person’s whereabouts. Wearing the pendant allows active seniors to have peace of mind – in the case of an event, they can press the call button and instantly be connected to a dispatcher. Take a look at the many ways our Libris® 2 mPERS system helps active seniors:
- Advanced Fall Detection – The Libris 2 utilizes cutting-edge motion detection technology based on artificial intelligence (AI) with a 90% accuracy rate. Plus, its advanced technology is able to accurately classify types of falls enabling it to significantly reduce false positives.
- Rapid Response Times – Statistics show that 88% of people survive falls if they receive help within the first 72 hours. If an active senior is out and experiences a fall, they can rely on the Libris 2 to connect them to first responders quickly.
- Aging in Place – Customers get the added confidence and assurance from the knowledge that they have the best fall detection mPERS capabilities. Having this confidence allows them to live at home longer and enjoy their independence.
