Around the Hip Safe

Hip’Air is has been created by Helite to protect seniors from a hip fracture. The belt integrates a double airbag which will inflate in less than an eyeblink when the fall is detected. One of the best features is that is is very easy to use and it is barely noticeable. It can be wear in any situation: in your house, for a walk or in your garden, it allows 100% mobility and freedom of movements.

We know that Seniors are subject to hip fracture, here are some facts about hip fractures in New Zealand and over the world.

  • 5 million of hip fractures  predicted hip fracture before 2050
  • 4,000 of hip fractures happen in New Zealand each year (DATA HERE)
  • 23% of people above the age of 70 usually die within the year after a hip fracture
  • 50% of victims lose their autonomy

How Does it Work?

Helite engineers have been working for over 10 years on the best solutions for seniors to reduce hip fractures during a fall.

A complex electronic system analyses people motion in context : when a fall is detected, the airbag deploys automatically over the hip before ground impact and insure an optimal protection.

A sophisticated algorithm is able to measure and analyse, more than 1000 times per second, the motion and fall in progress. The system uses different types of sensors, such as gyroscope and accelerometer, to calculate motion in context and determine if the person is walking normally or falling. The protection is ready before ground impact : the algorithm will detect the fall in 200 ms (0,2 seconds) and the airbags will inate in 80ms (0,08 seconds).

1. The system analyses and follows motion in context

2. The system detects that the person is falling in 200 ms (0,2 second)

3. Both airbags inate in 80 ms (0,08 second) above the hips.

4. Hips are fully protected before ground impac
