First Australian Project for ARMED Prevention Technology

Our revolutionary ARMED technology is being deployed for the first time in Australia to help prevent older people from succumbing to falls.

Our revolutionary ARMED technology is being deployed for the first time in Australia to help prevent older people from succumbing to falls.

Debilitating injuries from falls represent one of the greatest clinical risks in aged care and cost the Australian health care system an estimated $3.9billion annually. Over 125,000 people aged 65 and over were hospitalised due to falls in 2016-2017.

Victoria’s Mansfield District Hospital has commenced an initial 6-month project using ARMED to predict and prevent falls among its residential and community aged care clients.

Mansfield District Hospital CEO, Cameron Butler, says the Australian-first roll-out puts the Hospital at the forefront of proactive care using this innovative technology.                                                          

The Problem

“Within aged care, falls represent our greatest clinical risk where the outcomes can be poor. This can be the same for those living in the community where a fall may mean they are no longer able to live at home. Our aim is to significantly reduce the number of falls occurring within our aged care clients.

We are proactively seeking to address improved well-being and independence through falls prevention and are excited to be the first health service in Australia to use ARMED.”

Cameron Butler, Mansfield District Hospital CEO

Assistance with Covid-19 Crisis

“Detecting the risk of falls before they happen, allowing preventative intervention, is a game changer in the support of older Australians, in community home care, retirement living and residential care settings.  The artificial intelligence, analysis and remote data collection of ARMED technology becomes even more important with the need for social isolation imposed by the COVID-19 crisis.” Edward Slocombe, ARMED Project Leader.

In response to Covid-19, ARMED-in-a-Box has been developed to allow remote deployment with 3 months use of the platform free of charge. There’s a simple 3 step plan to get this deployed quickly and easily within this rapidly changing landscape.
