With one in three adults over the age of 65 suffering a fall each year, it’s no surprise that falls amongst the elderly are the leading cause of hospitalisation in the UK. Sadly, the injuries can often be severe and tragically, sometimes can even be fatal.
Research has also found that people who have already fallen once are more than likely to fall again and although falls can happen anywhere, over half happen in the home.
Some of these falls can be caused by factors in the person’s living environment, such as loose rugs, clutter and not having railings fitted in both the stairs and the bathroom. Simple measures can be taken so that the correct provisions are in place to ensure people are safe from trips and falls at home.
A recurring problem is that once a person has suffered a fall, emergency services are not able to access the property or individuals may require follow up care from health professionals once they return home.
Established in 1995, The Key Safe Company has provided a solution to this problem and revolutionised the way in which service providers can access properties safely and securely at the point of need.
The Supra C500 KeySafe™ enables householders to guarantee access to care givers, relatives and health care professionals, providing a crucial service, if they struggle to answer the door themselves.
The Supra C500 is the UK's only mechanical key safe that is police accredited through the Secured by Design initiative due to achieving the LPS1175: Issue 6, security rating 1. The product also has an accredited certification from The Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB), the leading international Certification Body in the fields of security and fire protection. Recognised by Secured By Design, as well as leading home insurance companies, the product has undergone rigorous tests devised by security experts to demonstrate a comparable attack resistance to a domestic front door.
