This equipment can be used as an alternative to the standard MyAmie Pendant. It’s a small, lightweight device and like other pendants, the iVi allows the wearer to press a help button to generate an alarm call when they need help from anywhere in their home, 24 hours a day. The iVi also provides an added layer of protection by automatically generating a call for assistance if a fall is detected and the wearer is unable to push the help button. It’s the only product of its kind to feature a ‘not-worn alert’ which will notify the monitoring centre if the iVi has not registered movement for a period of time (3, 5 or 7 days).
This piece of equipment is available on a 13 week free trial of Telecare equipment funded by West Sussex County Council and NHS West Sussex. There are ongoing costs to retain the equipment, and ‘Welbeing’ should be contacted for confirmation of those costs on 01323 644422.
