A French company, Helite, has created an inflatable safety device to help give those prone to falling more confidence. Worn like a belt, the bag inflates if the wearer falls over, mitigating the effect of the fall. The Hip’Air belt is comfortable and not intrusive to wear. The system is fitted with sensors that analyse movements as often as 1000 times a second and is capable of inflating in just 80 milliseconds.
