We all know of someone who may be frail or frequently falls and need help getting back up, be they elderly, injured or suffering from an auto-immune disease such as multiple sclerosis. One day, it might even be us!
Until now, there has been little option in most instances but to call 999, often leaving people lying on the floor for hours waiting for help to arrive.
Kinisi, a portable, light-weight lifting device, offers a solution, bringing a level of dignity and independence to the aged, injured or infirm who have fallen and have difficulty or need help getting up from the floor.
With Kinisi, there would no longer be a need to call 999, resulting in a reduction of the number of ambulance call-outs, of which falls currently constitute 10%.
