SAN JOSE, Calif., April 9th, 2024 – Kami Vision, the computer vision company that provides AI solutions to businesses and consumers, today announced that its KamiCare solution, a digital health solution for senior safety with superior fall detection and swift emergency response, has been taken to new heights with its ongoing partnership with RapidSOS.

Seniors comprise 20 percent of the U.S. population placing over 70M at high risk of falls creating medical costs exceeding $67B annually. In fact, according to the U.S. Center for Disease Control, one in three seniors fall annually. KamiCare, now enhanced with RapidSOS, introduces a new method of fall detection and emergency response for seniors in their homes. This vital update is crucial to ensure timely assistance given the rapidly aging population at risk.

KamiCare with RapidSOS promptly initiates voice calls and texts to the senior after detecting a fall, as announced at CES 2024 this year. This groundbreaking technology is automatically activated without any button press that is typically required by traditional fall detection devices.  If there is no response, it alerts emergency contacts and escalates to 911 in critical situations, ensuring safety and peace of mind. Unlike traditional methods like wearables and pull cords, KamiCare is 99.9 percent accurate in fall detection, ensuring reliable and timely notifications to families, care teams and emergency services.

“Our partnership with RapidSoS significantly advances the safety and independence of seniors,” said Mukund Rajukumar, Vice President of Growth at Kami Vision. “By integrating superior fall detection technology with swift, seamless emergency response, we are setting a new standard in eldercare. This collaboration underscores our commitment to transforming senior care with Vision AI technology”

“RapidSOS covers 99 percent of the United States population and handles 171M emergencies annually,” said Karin Marquez, Chief Public Safety Brand Officer at RapidSOS. “By connecting KamiCare to 911, seniors can feel safer in their homes knowing should they fall, they will receive help.”
