- Does Fall Alert contact my doctor or emergency services?
No, Fall Alert notifications are merely a tool that may assist in communicating certain information to one or more third-party contacts the user has identified. The Thrive app does not communicate with emergency services or provide emergency assistance in any way and is not a substitute for contacting professional emergency services. The operation of the Thrive app’s fall-detection features depends on wireless connectivity for both the user and the user’s designated contact(s), and the feature will not successfully deliver a message if Bluetooth® or cellular connectivity is lost or interrupted at any point in the communication pathway. Connectivity can be lost under a number of circumstances, such as: a paired mobile device is out of range of the hearing aid(s) or otherwise loses connectivity with the hearing aid(s); the hearing aids or mobile device are not turned on or sufficiently powered; a mobile device is in airplane mode; a mobile device malfunctions; or if bad weather interrupts a mobile device’s network connectivity.
- Is the Fall Alert feature a regulated medical device?
No, the Fall Alert feature is designed and distributed as a General Wellness product. The Fall Alert feature is not designed or in any way intended to detect, diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any specific disease or particular, medical condition and is not targeted to any specific or particular population. Rather, the Fall Alert feature is designed only to detect that a user may have fallen and try to send a text message in response to such an event, in support of the user’s general health.
