We know how important maintaining independence is for older Canadians. The challenge is doing so while dealing with chronic medical conditions, anxiety around falling and living alone.

1 out of 2 adults over 65 will fall or experience a health emergency this year — but an innovative new Smartwatch is meeting this challenge head-on, providing the most advanced fall protection technology and activity tracking while boosting confidence for an independent lifestyle.

Introducing Pulse Alert's new flagship Smartwatch, ProtectWell ACTIVE.

1. Complete Protection Right from Your Wrist.

With built-in GPS locating, an emergency/SOS 'help' button and fall detection features, you have the most advanced protection for those concerned about falls or medical emergencies. This life safety device provides you with access to help anywhere you go, not just in your home, no matter how big or small the emergency.

2. 24/7 Professional Emergency Monitoring

Anytime you push your help button, or a fall is detected, within seconds you’re speaking with a professionally trained operator to assess your situation. They'll know who you are, where you are, and you can tell them what kind of help you need like a helping hand from a loved one or paramedics.

They will also have a personalized medical profile. So EMS knows how to get into your building, if you have pets and exactly what medications, allergies and pre-existing health conditions you have.

In the event of an emergency, every second counts so the EMS already having this information available saves precious time.

3. Activity Tools For Easy Exercise

One of the most important things you can do to help prevent falls and improve your overall health as you age - is to improve your strength and balance through exercise.

This Smartwatch makes it very easy to stay active with a step counter that keeps track of your progress and goals throughout the day. And heart rate sensors that let you know when you need to take it easy.

4. Small, lightweight and waterproof

Designed to be comfortable, durable and resistant enough to wear in all conditions so you never have to take it off.

Unlike other fall alert devices worn as a lanyard, you're far more likely to wear your smartwatch at all times. Which is especially important on slippery surfaces where 80% of falls occur; getting in and out of the bathtub or wet curbs and stairs outside of the home.

When and where you’re most vulnerable maintain your independence and feel confident knowing the help button will be right there with you at all times.

5. Automatic Fall Detection (optional)

Is a special built-in technology that can sense a sudden change in elevation and automatically alert our monitoring center. Giving you an additional layer of protection in-case you're ever rendered unconscious or unable to press your alert button, you’ll have the added peace of mind that help will still be sent to your location and loved ones will be immediately notified.

6. Peace of Mind for You and Your Loved Ones

This barefoot shoe features a wide toe box that provides ample room for the toes to move and spread naturally. This design can help reduce pressure and discomfort in the toe area, making it ideal for individuals with conditions such as bunions, hammertoes, or other foot issues that require extra room.

7. Nationwide 4G coverage on AT&T network

Which covers you everywhere in Canada and the US and even extends to Mexico and Puerto Rico. Bring your Emergency Alert Smartwatch with you anywhere you go and you’ll stay connected to help. Whether you’re moving for the season, visiting family or vacationing, you can bring the feeling of confidence and peace of mind wherever life takes you.

“This smartwatch is a lifesaver. The peace of mind I have knowing I am always protected is priceless.” - Chris M.

8. Enhanced Independence

Around the clock access to help empowers you to keep doing your thing. It's like your personal assurance – help is there when you need it, so you can stay active and live life on your terms.

9. Fall Prevention Exercise Kit

The number one reason why older Canadians are falling is due to INACTIVITY… too much sitting. Studies show that inactivity over time reduces your mobility and function… which in turn actually increases your chances of falling in the future.

This is why fall experts recommend that you STAY ACTIVE. Building strength and continually challenging your balance is critical for you to actually reduce your chances of falling over time.

Pulse Alert has partnered up with a local Physio Clinic and developed a Strength & Balance exercise kit! You’ll get access to an app with a series of exercise videos, movements and routines specifically programmed to help develop your strength, mobility and improve your balance.

The kit includes access to a personalized app that can be downloaded to your phone or on your computer. It will have video demonstrations of each movement, with detailed instructions, a workout timer and tracker. They also send you a resistance band to go along with some of the strength exercises!

10. They're a 100% Canadian, Veteran owned company

Meet Royal Canadian Navy Veteran and Pulse Alert founder Todd Griffiths, who turned the death of his grandfather as a result of a fall into a safety solution for seniors living alone, in collaboration with top-tier emergency response professionals.

Todd's vision was simple – a wearable device that marries necessary emergency features with an active lifestyle, preserving seniors' independence without risking their safety.

And here's how you can get Pulse Alert will pay all of the upfront costs of your Emergency Alert Smartwatch!

Todd announced live on CHCH TV earlier this month, a special program to help protect as many ‘high fall risk’ seniors as possible. His company will pay for all of the upfront costs of ANY of their Life Safety Alert Devices, not just the new Alert Smartwatch.

He says that the main reason why many seniors who really need a device like this, but don't have one, is because they think it's too expensive.

So by covering all of the expensive upfront costs of the equipment and activation with local emergency services, all Canadians have to pay for is the 24/7 emergency monitoring which only costs about a cup of Tim's per day. This allows folks (and their family) to finally have the confidence and peace of mind to live an active independent lifestyle despite the risks.
