HIP’SAFE – Airbag for Seniors
The First Wearable Airbag Hip Protector
How does it work?
HIP’SAFE is the first device that used airbag technology to prevent hip fractures and help seniors keep their mobility and freedom.
Developed by a team of Engineers; a complex electronic system and algorithm that analyze people’s motion in context. When a fall is detected, both airbags deploy automatically above the hips before ground impact and ensure optimal protection.
-Analyses and follows motion in context
-Fall detection time: 200ms
-Airbag inflation time: 80ms
-Optimal protection before ground impact
T1: 65 – 75cm
T4: 110 – 125cm
