We know how nerve-racking it can be to experience a fall, especially when help is a long way away. A single fall can impact our lives, affect our self-confidence, and possibly cause life-threatening injuries. Whether you or your loved one have experienced a fall before or not, falls and loss of balance can induce chronic stress and mental fatigue. Nearly 1 in 4 Americans experience a fall each year, with over 2.8 million injuries treated in ER annually. To add to these staggering statistics, over 800,000 hospitalizations and more than 27,000 deaths each year can be attributed to falls alone.
We realize in that many situations; it is not possible to press a push-button once you have fallen, which unfortunately is what a majority of the products currently on the market do. SenixBand aims at keeping you or your loved ones safe by automatically detecting a fall and alerting your emergency contact instantly.

As you age, it's crucial to keep track of various vitals. It becomes important to balance a healthy lifestyle with things that you enjoy doing daily. Did you know that according to the ACE (American Council on Exercise), people who track their steps take an average of 2,500 more steps per day than those who don't ? What's more, Thomas Jefferson, who lived to be 83 when the life expectancy was 40, walked four miles each day. However, walking or performing any exercise without closely monitoring your vitals could lead to over-exhaustion and fatigue. This is why SenixBand offers the following ways to track your wellness and vitals
Thump, thump, thump, that's the sound of your heart beating around 4,800 times in an hour. Throughout our lifetime, the heart ends up beating around 3.3 billion times. One could argue it's one of the hardest working muscles in our body, yet it is often neglected.
SenixBand gives you valuable insight into your heart with Heart Rate Variability (HRV), Arrhythmia detection, and 1-lead EKG that you can share with your doctor. Trends in HRV have been shown to be a close biomarker for fatigue, illness, stress, and several other physiological factors. SenixBand allows you to securely share your HRV data with your medical providers, to assist them in diagnosing long term cardiac conditions.
