Falls are the second leading cause of death from injury among people over the age of 65
Every year 1/3 of all people over 65 are suffering from falls.
Older adults who fall once are two to three times as likely to fall again within a year
Every 11 seconds, an older adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall
Fall prevention strategies should include the promotion of engineering to remove the potential for falls and the education of individuals and communities to build risk awareness.
We believe we can prevent and predict the risk of falling and fragility in the elderly generation through the combination of wearable technology and machine learning
Our connected insole allows senior adults and their relatives to track their gait characteristics and generate data-driven recommendations on simple but effective exercises targeted at preventing the risk of falling

Pendulum was born!
We got the first Letter of Intent (LOI) from a retirement home
We started working on the prototype and collecting the first data. And...we were selected for YC Startup School
Even though we are enthusiastic researchers and hard workers, we need your help! If you are a business professional and are passionate about wearable technologies and/or elderly care, reach out to us and we will be happy to explain our project further.
We also welcome VCs and investors, of course.
