Falls happen. The CDC estimates medical costs associated with fall-related health care are roughly $50 billion per year and only increasing with the aging population. Viconic began developing underlayment systems to reduce the risk of fall-related injuries as a finalist of Head Health Challenge II sponsored by the NFL, GE, and Under Armour. Viconic Fall Defense™ is compatible with most flexible flooring systems from multiple manufacturers and provides constant injury protection underfoot for fall-prone adults. The patented system reduces the risk of fall-related injuries while supporting patient mobility, healthy aging, and personal independence.
Viconic Health produces a military grade underlayment system in Michigan to reduce the risk of fall-related injuries in all senior care environments. Over 65% of automotive passenger vehicles and 75% of military combat vehicles produced today trust Viconic technologies to exceed federal standards for occupant protection.
