Falls are the single largest cause of injury for New Zealanders and the second most common reason for phoning 111 for an ambulance. Every year in New Zealand, 1 in 3 people over the age of 65 will fall. For those over the age of 80 the rate increases to 1 in 2 *. Often the amount of time it takes to get help determines how quickly people recover from a fall.
With more certainty around timely access to help in any emergency, St John Medical Alarms can offer older patients, and those with a physical disability or health condition the confidence they need to maintain their independence
