Updated 8/28/15 2:50pm | One of Alert1’s frequently asked questions is whether or not you can use our products simultaneously. The short answer is a resounding yes. You can combine our fall detection medical alert system and our mobile medical alert system as a bundle! These systems can easily work together to keep you or your loved one safe from harm. 

Why Do I Need A Fall Detection Medical Alert?

Falls are dangerous, and many seniors have difficulty pressing their button after they fall. Monitoring your senior’s health may be time consuming. Allow Alert1 to give your senior a device that will provide you and your loved one with peace of mind. With our fall detection system, it will keep your loved one safe while in and around their home. The pendant contains sensors that detect falls. It will call for help if it senses a fall, even if you are unable to press the button.

Since the fall detection medical alert system will automatically call for help whenever the user falls, fall detection is perfectly suited for people with chronic symptoms or diseases, particularly those that cause dizziness, unconsciousness, or other propensity towards falls.

Here's an example of how fall detection works. Bessie Sue lives in foggy New England - where the best and most hearty clam chowders call home. However, Bessie has diabetes. Her son, Rick, got Bessie a fall detection medical alert system after she broke her funny bone by falling down the stairs.

During the last Oktoberfest, Bessie Sue skipped her lunch because she was too busy cleaning up the tents from the annual fair. Bessie started feeling a little light-headed, an early sign of senior dehydration. But she ignored it, thinking it was caused by the heat - the sun was unusually bright that day. The dizziness was truly from the fact that Bessie has skipped lunch, but Bessie finished cleaning and headed home without grabbing a bite to eat.

While in her warm shower, Bessie fainted. Her fall detection pendant sensed her falling, and called the Alert1 Command Center. An operator came on the line, but couldn’t contact Bessie, who was still unconscious. The operator immediately called for an ambulance, which arrived within minutes to help. Bessie did not get any lasting injuries from the fall thanks to Alert1’s speedy response.

Let's look at Jon of San Francisco to better understand what is going on. Jon is a travel and hiking guru. He loves flying to different locales in the US and going on week-long hikes in the wilderness. Due to some accidents in his more adventurous years, Jon's right knee is weak, and it occasionally gives out. But Jon refused to give up his passion of traveling and hiking, in spite of the risk of his knee causing him to fall. At his daughter’s insistence, he got the Alert1 mobile medical alert and carried it around with him on all of his adventures.

Jon sometimes becomes very weak, and this made Jon very susceptible to falling. And he refuses to give up his senior passion for traveling and hiking. Therefore, at his daughter's insistence, he got the Alert1 mobile medical alert and carried it around with him during all of his adventures. On a hike in the local Oakland Hills, Jon stumbled and tumbled down the hillside. He landed abruptly at the bottom of a ravine. He immediately pressed his emergency call button for help. Within seconds, the Alert1 command center was on the line, asking if he needed help.

Jon did not know exactly where he had ended up after falling off the trail. The Command Center was able to locate him with our geo-location technology and sent an ambulance his way. In less than fifteen minutes, Jon was getting treated. Luckily, Jon only sustained a few scratches. The mobile alert button proved to both Jon and his daughter that Alert1 would be there for him. Jon can travel anywhere in the US and feel the peace of mind of Alert1 protection.
