How Can We Prevent Falls?

Every year there are 700,000 to 1,000,000 falls in hospital rooms and 4.3 million falls in nursing homes. VSTAlert is a fast and accurate alert system that uses AI to predict bed and chair exits before the event occurs. It also sends alerts directly to the attending nurses’ smartphones, on average, more than 20 seconds faster than existing bed alarms. The system reduces alarm fatigue by more than 90%, allowing nurses to focus on patient care instead of inaccurate distractions.
