ManDown Alarm is a sensor based aid to launching emergency cycle that makes automatic call and sends position to predefined numbers in case the user is unable to do manual alarm.

Alert is sent when predefined parameters are met on in-built accelerometer. In order to minimise false alarms or missing alarms, the ManDown settings need to be carefully matched with the usage scenario and environment. The user needs to be trained on ManDown function and also on understanding its limitations.

Key Features of ManDown Alarm
  • Emergency cycle (TWIG SOS cycle) starting automatically
  • Emergency message via GPRS or alternately via SMS according to DIN0825
  • Dedicated emergency tones & displays gives possibility to totally loud or silent alert
  • Text on the emergency message to inform cause of alert
  • Alarm on horizontal or vertical change included with movement detection
  • Ability to use only motion based information to trigger alert
  • Adjustable movement detection
  • Temporary disabling when e.g. crawling
  • Possibility to prevent user to turn off
  • No alarm when connected to charger
  • Periodical beep tone for locating unconscious person
  • ManDown+ (two independent alert triggers, device orientation and non-movement)
  • See visualisation of device orientations for alert and no alert here below.

Movement sensor triggers alert when device main axis orientation deviates from absolute upright position.

ManDown Alarm when horizontal

TWIG SOS cycle is launched when device main axis orientation deviates from absolute upright position more than Tilt Angle (in degrees). Device movement has no effect.

ManDown Alarm when vertical

TWIG SOS cycle is launched when device beam axis orientation deviates from absolute upright position more than Tilt Angle (in degrees). Device movement has no effect. Typical application is wearing the device on the belt, in horizontal carrying case.

No Movement: TWIG SOS cycle is launched when detected device movement (acceleration) falls below a threshold value defined by Motion Sensitivity. Device orientation has no effect.

Horizontal + Motion Sensitivity Enabled: TWIG SOS cycle is launched when device main axis orientation deviates from absolute upright position more than Tilt Angle (in degrees), AND detected device movement (acceleration) falls below a threshold value defined by Motion Sensitivity.

Vertical + Motion Sensitivity Enabled: TWIG SOS cycle is launched when device beam axis orientation deviates from absolute upright position more than Tilt Angle (in degrees), AND detected device movement (acceleration) falls below a threshold value defined by Motion Sensitivity.

ManDown+

The TWIG personal alarms supporting ManDown+ feature alerts the ARC also in situations where the user is not moving (e.g. because of unconsciousness) but the personal alarm is not deviating enough from the absolute tilt angle (e.g. where fainting doesn’t include falling and change in device orientation axis).

ManDown++

The TWIG personal alarms supporting ManDown++ feature alerts the ARC also in situations of a sudden impact or free falling.
