Question

If someone were to drop their Livio AI devices, would that cause an alert to be triggered?

Answer

Livio AI with Fall Alert is fairly robust at rejecting false-positive detections, including when the patient removes their hearing aids, sets them down, or drops them. Moreover, Livio AI’s patent-pending fall detection and alert system maximizes the benefits of binaural, hearing-aid fittings. When a patient is wearing a binaural set, the hearing aids will communicate and share motion sensor data with each other. During an actual fall, the left and right device should collect comparable motion data from both sides of the patient’s head. Livio AI’s artificial intelligence engine looks at all of the available motion data before allowing the patient’s smartphone to send alerts out to the patient’s selected contacts.
