ResQUp – A Simple Solution to Fall Recovery
The Problem of Falling
The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have arrived at the following findings: One in four Americans over the age of 65 years of age fall every year, with the number of falls increasing each decade of life. Every 11 seconds an elderly adult is treated for a fall injury in the emergency department and an older adult die from a fall every 19 minutes.
Falls are the leading cause of fatal injuries and the most common cause of nonfatal trauma-related hospital admissions among older adults. The financial toll is expected to increase as the US population ages and may reach $67.7 Billion by 2020.
Besides injuries caused by falls, the simple fear of falling can impact the lives of seniors by causing a reduction in their level of activity. This in turn leads to a decline in mobility and physical fitness, which can increase the actual risk of another fall.
Caregivers, whether professional or family members, can also be gravely affected by this problem. They are often unable to physically assist the fallen person without danger of injury to themselves. Anticipation of another fall may also make a caregiver reluctant to allow the senior any independence, also diminishing the senior’s quality of life.
- The ResQUp can be utilized by individuals alone at home as a recovery device to help you get up from the floor in the case of a fall, or to get down to the floor, when attempting to do so may be difficult or unsafe.
- The ResQUp can improve access to under-counter cabinets, provide a way to work in outdoor gardens, and make engaging grandchildren and pets on the floor possible.
- The ResQUp can assist people who fall in the public (e.g.; schools, hotels, supermarkets, shopping centers, convention centers, arenas) and generally wherever groups of individuals gather together.
I’m finding the ResQup helpful and light weight! At this point, I’m using to help me get on and off a hand cycle. In addition, I hope to use it to lower myself to the ground to do some fall planting in the garden. The ResQUp does indeed meet my expectations. In fact, I shared the info you sent with the purchase with my physical therapist. She was impressed! I would definitely recommend ResQUp to others!
My Mom loves it. One of her grandkids helps her use it for practice and she immediately had some confidence come back. She repeatedly thanks me and tells us she doesn’t worry about falling anymore. This had been a god send to my family and gives us piece of mind. We cannot THANK YOU enough. I do not understand why rehab centers and nursing homes don’t have such a device. For the cost of this, it was worth every penny.
UPS delivered my ResQUp right on schedule October 21, and it is perfect in every way, even better than I could have expected. Amazingly light-weight, expertly designed and constructed in every detail, sturdy yet easy to handle. I was able to use it successfully on my very first try, and much more so since. Needless to add, I shall not be returning my ResQUp to you. It has rapidly become – and will remain – a very important possession for the rest of my life.
My 82 year old mother who cannot get up after a fall and has to call for help to get back on her feet, lived her life for the last few years in fear. She really hated to call for help. I searched for long time for a device that would give her the ability to get up independently, and finally found the ResQup. My mother tried it out she thanks the creators of the device for thinking of people like her.
The Pendleton Centers of Yavapai Regional Medical Center purchased for the ResQUp to use in our facilities. It is a useful, innovative device because it respects our clients independence while at the same time protects the client and staff from injuries while assisting clients who have fallen or who need a little extra help getting up from the floor after exercising.
