Automatic fall detection radar for peace of mind
Includes 12-months connectivity
Get instant notification of a fall.
The TEQ-FallsAlert uses proprietary radar technology to constantly scan a room for someone falling over. When a fall takes place, the radar immediately sends an alert via an app to nominated carers or family members letting them know a fall has taken place. Help can then be dispatched in an instant.
With real-time fall detection, the TEQ-FallsAlert alerts carers the second a fall takes place, so help can be sent immediately.
This fall detection device uses radar instead of cameras to respect privacy and dignity within the home.
Placed in the upper corner of a room and free from trip hazards, the fall detection radar can detect falls from bed and from a seated position as well as from standing.
This product includes a 12-month subscription to the Sofihub app/online portal.
Please note the TEQ-FallsAlert needs to connect to wifi to operate*.

What is a falls detection radar? What is the case for having one?
Did you know that falls are Australia’s number one cause of injury hospitalisation and death in older Australians?
They represent 77% of injury hospitalisations and 71% of injury deaths.
One in 2 falls occur in the home.
Most hospitalised falls occurred on the same level (60%), such as a slip, trip, or stumble.
Lying on the floor for more than an hour is strongly correlated with serious injuries, admission to hospital, and subsequent moves into long term residential aged care.
It's clear that a solution is needed to help prevent falls and their potentially devastating consequences.
Which is why the TEQ-FallsAlert was developed.
It uses radar technology to detect falls and promptly alert friends or family members, ensuring swift assistance and reducing the risk of long lie falls.
Why buy a TEQ-FallsAlert falls detection radar?
1. Advanced Fall Detection: TEQ-FallsAlert accurately detects falls from standing, seated and from bed.
2. Real-Time Alerts: The radar sends immediate alerts to designated contacts, such as family members or caregivers, allowing for prompt assistance in the event of a fall.
3. Long Lie Fall Prevention: By detecting falls and facilitating timely intervention, TEQ-FallsAlert helps prevent the complications associated with long lie falls including serious injury, hospitalisation, and a move into residential aged care.
4. Seamless integration: TEQ-FallsAlert seamlessly integrates into the daily routine, requiring no wearable devices or additional user actions. Its non-intrusive design ensures maximum comfort and ease of use.

"My mother is very resistant to outside help, I tried to get her a nurse, a cleaner, but she refused. I live so far away and it worried me. Especially as she keeps losing her phone or forgetting to take it off silent. With TEQ-FallsAlert I at least know she hasn't fallen somewhere."
“Mum’s very active but lives alone on a farm and even though we have people there during the day, she’s alone at night. I used to worry she’d had an accident, especially if I forgot to call in the evening. I hate the thought of no one finding her till the morning. The TEQ-FallsAlert gives me peace of mind that that hasn't happened."
"As my dear husband has aged, he's struggled with unsteadiness. Unfortunately, he experienced 3 falls recently, leaving him unable to get up. The worry has prevented me from leaving him alone. However, the TEQ-FallsAlert has been an absolute blessing! Now I can go out with peace of mind. This device has given us back our independence, and we're so grateful."
