About Us

FallWatch Consortium has been created in 2009 to miniaturize a wearable fall detection system for the elderly developed by Vigilio S.A. in collaboration with the University Joseph Fourier (Grenoble)) under the brand Vigi'Fall TM.

Convinced that innovative embedded devices for the monitoring of healthcare parameters will enhance safety and well-being of the frailest, we develop a reliable telemedical solution for private operators and government organisations involved in home care. In addition, we provide technology insertion and consultancy services to commercial and industrial customers around the world.
