DIY Accidents and Wireless Power27 April 2020
Each year, hundreds of thousands of people require medical consultation after accidents associated with DIY projects at home.
The top accident cause is falling from a ladder. In 2014, 165000 people required medical care after falling from a ladder at home in the US. In an Australian study, fall from ladder accounted for 38% of hospitalizations, followed by contact with powered and non-powered hand tools.
While long-range wireless power can’t stabilize the ladder for you, it can prevent some of the reasons to climb on that ladder in the first place. By eliminating the need to replace or recharge batteries in smoke detectors, security camera, powered shaders and other battery-operated products, wireless power can help reduce these unfortunate accidents.
