Charnwood Lifeline supplies two different types of detectors:

The Vibby Fall Detector

The Vibby Fall Detector can give you confidence if you are at risk of falling, especially if you have limited mobility, are an older person or have any long-term conditions such as epilepsy, diabetes and Parkinson’s disease.

Key benefits:

  • Hypoallergenic plastic
  • Shock resistant
  • Replaceable battery
  • Auto low battery reporting
  • Can be worn on your wrist or as a pendant

The fall detector is hired via Charnwood Lifeline, which means a replacement will be provided if the equipment develops a fault. However, it is the responsibility of the customer to test the equipment. You can do this by pressing the button on the pendant to put a call through to our Control Centre on a monthly basis.

The iVi Fall Detector

The iVi can give you confidence if you are at risk of falling, especially if you have limited mobility, are an older person or have any long-term conditions such as epilepsy, diabetes and Parkinson’s disease. 

Key benefits:

  • Sensitivity settings can be adjusted to suit you
  • Cancel button if alarm raised but no longer needed
  • LED display
  • Increasing volume of alarm the longer the alarm has been raised
  • Not worn alert – if no movement at all registered within 7 days
  • Range of wearing options
  • Small lightweight

The detectors and all of the equipment is hired from Charnwood Lifeline, therefore if the equipment develops a fault we will be happy to replace it for you. However, it is your responsibility to test the equipment by pressing the button on the pendant to put a call through to our Control Centre on a monthly basis.

Disclaimer

Please note due to the wide variety and types of falls not all falls will be detected; whenever the user needs assistance they should always press the help button. Soft falls, slumping falls, descent controlled falls against a wall or a chair, etc. will not be detected by the Vibby or iVi. Considering the technology used – and the target to minimize false alarms – all falls (even dangerous-heavy falls) cannot be guaranteed to be detected.
