Early stage healthcare startup ActiveProtective thinks it has developed a way to better protect patients, if not prevent them from falling.
It’s a wearable airbag.
Dr. Robert Buckman, a former trauma surgeon at Temple University Hospital and St Mary Medical Center in Langhorne, Pennsylvania, is the CTO for ActiveProtective. He invented a micro airbag designed to be worn around the waist that deploys to cushion the user’s fall.
