love and depend on Alert1’s line of medical alert systems for seniors. Our new PAX mobile fall
detection system will allow you to travel away from home while still enjoying our
popular fall detection. This new medical alert system uses GPS and 3G cellular
networks to find your location in an emergency. Advanced sensors in the help
button will automatically call for help if they detect a fall. With PAX mobile
fall detection, you get complete protection everywhere you go.
Mobile Fall Detection is Easy to Set Up
Every aspect of the PAX GPS medical alert has been designed
with ease of use in mind. Setting up the fall detection system is easier than reheating
First, plug the small
end of the charging cord into the back of the dock and plug the large end into
a wall outlet. Next, place the help button into the charger and follow the
friendly voice prompts.
After charging your medical alert
pendant for 4 hours, you can turn the mobile fall detection pendant on. Press
and hold the call button until the battery indicator light flashes. When you
hear the audio message: “Your mobile responder is ready”, your device is
Once your help pendant is
charged, press the button to test your system. In moments you will reach the
US-based monitoring team at our Command Center. Let our friendly
operators know that you’re testing, and they can answer any questions you have.
They will lead you every step of the way.
To turn your medical
alert off, you must click the call button twice. Hold it the second time until
you are prompted to press it once more to confirm. At this point you’ll hear
“Powering off now. Goodbye”.
In Case of an Emergency
If you ever need help, hold the call
button down. The response team at our Alert1 Command Center will come on the
line to help you.
All our medical alert systems use your Alert1 Circle of Care to contact the right
people in the unfortunate event of an accident. We can contact a neighbor, a
family member, or call 911. For example, if you have an accident, we can
automatically call your neighbor and ask them to check on you. Or we can send your
daughter to come help.
The battery used in the PAX mobile fall
detection device will hold a charge for up to 24 hours. The help pendant has an
indicator light to show the level of charge, so you won’t be caught off guard
with a dead battery. A green light will notify you of full charge, yellow
indicates moderate charge, and a red light indicates low battery. Internal
sensors will shut of the device when it gets too hot, so it’s best not to leave
your button lying in the sun.
How Automatic Fall Detection Works
PAX mobile fall detection uses over
190 parameters to calculate when a fall has occurred. The medical alert button uses
advanced sensors to measure orientation, impact intensity, and impact speed of
a fall. If it senses a fall, PAX mobile fall detection will place a call to the
Alert1 Command Center. The entire process takes only 35-40 seconds.
PAX GPS medical alert
system knows when
it is dropped or thrown, so it will not send out an emergency signal in these
instances. While false triggers are highly uncommon, you can reduce false
alarms by wearing your help button on a lanyard tucked inside your clothing.
If you do experience
a false alarm, simply tell the emergency responder that it was an accident and
that you don’t need help. We know these things happen. That’s why we don’t
charge you for button presses. Feel free to press your button at any time.
PAX uses GPS as well as an
internal antenna for Location Based Service (LBS) to pinpoint your location. This
great technology means you don’t have to know where you are if an emergency
occurs. The Command Center will send help directly to your location.
Other Great Features
to its ease of use and high-tech components, the PAX mobile fall
detection system is highly water-resistant. The mobile
fall detection button is even safe to wear in the shower! Also, the help button can
be dropped on the ground or sat on without breaking. Weighing in at only 49
grams, its weight is comparable to an egg. Seniors, you can rest assured that PAX has your back!
