Unfortunately, falls happen. Caregivers can’t be there beside every resident 24/7 to reduce the risk of fall-related injuries. Viconic Fall Defense can.
It’s a patented fall protection system right under the floor covering. Trusted by the U.S. military, Viconic is engineered for reducing the risk of fall-related injuries and for ease of installation. Once installed, it invisibly supports mobility, healthy aging, and independence for years. Because you can’t be everywhere all the time, put up your best defense.
Unfortunately, falls remain a major issue in senior care. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC):
Falls can have dire consequences for residents and can also negatively impact a senior care community’s operation. Industry data shows that as our elderly population increases, so will the total number of falls. Additionally, hip fracture rates are projected to triple by 2050 along with traumatic brain injuries due to falls.
Viconic Fall Defense reduces the risk of injury when residents fall. A layer of protection underneath the flooring, Viconic supports fall management strategies while also providing comfort for staff.
With input from industry leaders in architecture, design, and senior care, Viconic Fall Defense is an ideal option for new construction and remodels. Viconic is engineered to support mobility while reducing the risk of fall-related injuries in all senior care settings, including Memory Care, Skilled Nursing, Assisted Living, and Independent Living. Additional benefits include reduced sound transmission between floors and extra comfort underfoot for staff.
With over 40 U.S. patents issued and pending, Viconic technology is installed to reduce the risk of serious injury and meet federal safety standards in the defense and automotive industries. Viconic Fall Defense was developed specifically for our elders living in senior care settings—so that they can live their best lives.
