More than 800,000 Americans are hospitalized each year from fall-related injuries.

We’ll bring the SAF-T VEST to market

Davenport SAF-T Systems, led by Jay A. Davenport, M.D, a board-certified orthopaedic surgeon, designed a patented, wearable tech solution to reduce devastating injuries from falls. Because when an older adult falls, there can be life-changing consequences. It could mean a long, difficult recovery and the beginning of a steady physical decline. Familiar and enjoyable routines are disrupted. Independent living may no longer be possible. It’s critically important to bring the SAF-T VEST to market.

Why we’ll bring this to market

The SAF-T VEST will have a remarkable effect helping seniors remain independent and physically active for longer and later in life. As the U.S. population continues to age, the SAF-T VEST represents an important advance over the few fall protection systems available today, which are designed to protect only the hips. Preventing 100% of falls may never be possible. Protection from fall injuries, however, is within our reach.

Critical seed round of funding

We need funding to help us build an advanced prototype for safety and performance testing. We’ve opened a seed round to raise $350,000 to cover three phases of development including the industrial and mechanical design, electrical system and firmware. Future modifications, robust performance and safety testing, and commercial launch will be funded through a planned equity round.
