Empathize with customers through story

Tom has been a GP for over 30 years, witnessing first-hand the devastating frequency of fall-related injuries and the significant consequences. After realising that most technology out there is designed to detect falls, rather than prevent them, Tom identified an opportuntity to help support vulnerable and frail older adults who were at risk of falling at night.

Many falls occur during the night, when older people can feel unsettled or disorientated; this sparked the idea for a unique fall prevention device, discrete enough to sit on a bedside table. Tom brought his vision to life in partnership with his product development team following months of in-depth consumer research, multiple prototypes over two years, followed by comprehensive development and testing. 

After the Bide device had been developed the impact of the product could be seen straight away. Doctor Tom finally had a innovative device that he could place in the hands of his patients, providing them and their families with the reassurance that they had been longing for. At last, falls could now be prevented, enabling people to live independently for longer in their own homes. 

Falling facts:

Approximately one in three adults aged 65+ fall each year
One third of patients who fracture a hip will die within 12 months
1.8 million hospital bed are used every year for fall related incidents

Waking up in the night confused or disoriented, and then attempting to get out of bed before you're ready, is a common cause of falls, but now it can be easily addressed.

Falling facts:

Waking up in the night confused or disoriented, and then attempting to get out of bed before you're ready, is a common cause of falls, but now it can be avoided.

Approximately one in three adults aged 65+ fall each year, and this increases to more than half of adults aged 80+, or those with neurodegenerative diseases, such as Parkinson’s disease. 

Spine, wrists and hips fractures are the most common fall-related injuries. Short and long-term outlooks for patients are generally poor following a hip fracture, with an increased one-year mortality of between 18% and 33% and negative effects on daily living activities, such as shopping and walking Hip fractures alone account for 1.8 million hospital bed days and £1.1 billion in hospital costs every year, excluding the high cost of social care.

Every fall prevented matters which is why the fall prevention device Bide can be life changing. If you are concerned about an elderly releative who lives alone and is at risk of falling at night, our device could provide you with the reassurance you are looking for. 


The Cause of Falls

The truth is that nighttime falls can happen for a variety of reasons, and whilst some factors like bedroom safety can be addressed, others are more complex. From trip hazards to the impact of certain medications, many factors can impact the frequency and severity of falls, here are some of the main factors: 

  • Balance problems and muscle weakness 
  • Osteoporosis – More than 3 million people in the UK have osteoporosis and they are at much greater risk of fragility fractures. 
  • Poor vision 
  • A long-term health condition, such as heart disease, dementia or low blood pressure (hypotension)
  • Side effects caused by certain medications including painkillers.
Unfortunately, when discussing a fall in the elderly, there is so much more to consider than just the fall itself. A fall can lead to a variety of complications including: 

  • Long hospital stays 
  • Isolation 
  • Loss of independence 
  • Loss of confidence 
An increased likelihood that another fall will occur having a Bide device with you at home will decrease the likelihood of you or your loved ones having a fall and thus you are able to avoid some of these life-changing complications.

I like Bide. I take note of the messages and it really does remind me to take my time when getting out of bed. It has also reduced my fear of falling.
