Do you make a vest that can be worn everyday? My son has epilepsy and I don’t want him wearing a helmet
Thanks for your question! Our SAF-T VEST(TM) is still in prototype development. Although we anticipate most of our customers will be older adults, we believe our wearable technology will be appropriate for any adult-sized individuals who are assessed to be at risk of falling.
Thank you for reaching out to Davenport SAF-T Systems!
Please hurry with this new product. for accident-prone seniors like me. Do you have investors with the means to make a difference? I think there would be money to be made selling these. And so much pain, suffering and expense could be avoided. Due to several falls, I have had a broken femoral neck and compression fracture of my back as well as broken teeth, bruises, and abrasion. I am 68 and before all this I was very active, but now I am afraid of any misstep because I am not as well balanced as I used to be. I am in PT now. I live in Texas in a 55+ active adult community and would be willing to speak to anyone doing market research for your device. 281-216-6386
Thank you so much for your note. We appreciate your feedback and are developing the SAF-T VEST as quickly as we can. I am sorry to hear that you are having injuries from falling. We are looking for investors to help us finish the engineering and for product testing. So please share our website with your friends and family. We also have a Go Fund Me website where we are raising dollars to help us with legal and engineering costs. That website is https://www.gofundme.com/manage/4u6x5-stand-up-for-fall-protection
I will keep your name and number for future reference. We are planning to do additional consumer research. Thank you again. Be sure to check back on our website for news and updates.!
Its a great idea and can also help people suffering from Syncope/epilasy as well.
my wife suffers from Syncope and this can be very useful for her when she falls (without warning).
I am wondering though, the design seems suitable for wearing in colder environments. How about something a little more breathable like the helite turtle vest (for bikers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gbD45YTItA)
Looking forwards to the idea being developed soon.
Thanks for your note. Our website and video show our design concept for the SAF-T VEST. We are still prototyping and expect to produce lightweight versions designed for indoor and outdoor use. Check back for further updates about the SAF-T VEST.
when can we expect the first production batch to be out ?
It’s possible we’ll prototypes suitable for testing and pilot studies in 12 months or less.
Good afternoon Dr. Davenport
I work in the healthcare setting and as our population gets older and sicker, we are, as you stated in your video, need to have the mindset – how do we prevent injury. Are there any different designs for the hospital care setting? Very interested in learning more. Thank you for your time.
Our SAF-T VEST is in Phase 2 prototyping. In my view, the design and function of the vest would be largely the same in the hospital setting. I envision the notification system in the vest would connect to the nurse or the nurses station. The SAF-T VEST could be fitted to the patient as part of a fall risk assessment or as part of inpatient rehabilitation or physical therapy. Thanks for your interest! We are a current MassChallenge participant in the Austin, Texas cohort. We’ll be looking for investor support or collaboration with healthcare innovators. -Jay A. Davenport, M.D.
