After an amazing experience in 2018, the Helite team will be back in Las Vegas for the CES 2019 (Customer Electronic Show). The world’s largest innovation show will run from January 8 to 11, 2019. A unique opportunity for the company to present the latest version of the Hip’Safe: the first airbag belt that protects seniors in the case of fall. Come meet Hip’Safe to discover its technology, test the belt, see demos and exchange ideas.
Hip’Safe, how does it work?
The system uses a complex algorithm that analyzes motion in context. When a fall is detected, both airbags inflate automatically above the hips to ensure an optimal protection before the impact. The belt is comfortable, easy to use and reusable after each fall.
