How Does the Kelsi Mobile Medical Alert Work?

Ever wondered what it’s like to have unlimited protection anywhere you go? Do you enjoy traveling? If you are an active senior a mobile medical alert system is the perfect system for your needs! Alert1 is proud to introduce our mobile medical alert system, Kelsi. 

What is Kelsi?


Kelsi is the smallest and most comfortable portable medical alert system we have on the market.

  • The pendant is approximately 1.7 inches in length, 1.7 inches in width, and 0.7 inches in height. It is as small as four nickels placed next to each other in a square. 

  • Kelsi is showerproof, so you can bring it with you into the shower and always stay safe. Afterall, the shower is the most common room in a house for slips and falls!

  • Kelsi does not require a base station or landline phone – that is what makes it an upgrade over our classic home medical alert systems. 

  • With Kelsi, you can go anywhere in the United States and have Alert1 protection with a click of a button.

Why Do People Choose Kelsi Over Our Classic Home Medical Alert?

  • Our classic home medical alert system only works in and around the home. You only get a range of 600 feet around the base unit. It is cheaper, when compared to Life Alert Costs. So what makes different?

  • With Kelsi, you get unlimited range. You can literally bring Kelsi with you anywhere you go, whether you are at home or out and about.

  • Our members choose Kelsi over our classic home system because of its small size and unlimited range. Why settle for limited protection only at home, when you can have protection anywhere you go?

How Does the Mobile Medical Alert System Work?

You can put your medical alert in your pocket or wear it around your neck. Whether you are at home or out and about, if you need help, simply press your button.

You can press your button at any time, day or night. Once you press your button, you will be connected via cellular network to a U.S. based emergency operator at an Alert1Command Center. They will ask if you need help and if you do, they will contact a family member, friend, or 911 to care for your aid.

A Real Life Example: Frank

As it is easier to understand things through examples, so let’s look at Frank from Pittsburg California. Frank is an active 65 year old veteran who lives home alone. He loves to walk around his neighborhood and enjoys the outdoors. He typically walks to the neighborhood park every morning to get his daily exercise in.

Now Frank had a bad fall a few months ago, so he got a medical alert system from Alert1. Since Frank is very active, he decided to go with the Kelsi mobile medical alert system so he could take it with him on his daily walks. When he first bought his medical alert, he had to set up his Circle of Care contact list. He chose:

  1. Call John, his neighbor
  2. Call Tony, his brother
  3. Call 911

While taking his daily stroll to the park, Frank tripped over a huge branch and fell head first on the hard cement floor. He was not able to get up, so he quickly pressed his emergency call button on his Kelsi. The operator asked Frank where he was and called his neighbor John to assist him since he was the closest. John got to Frank in a matter of minutes to help him up and care for him. Frank did not suffer any lasting injuries thanks to Alert1’s speedy response. 

What if I Don’t Know Where I am?

Don’t worry, the Kelsi was designed specifically to help even if you don’t know where you are. The operators at our Command Center will open a direct connection with 911 and use their precise geo-location GPS technology to locate you within 2 meters.

We will then communicate the location to your responders so they can get you help. If your responders aren’t near, we will contact the local 911 near you. No matter what situation you are in, just remember that Alert1 will stay on the line with you until we are 100% sure your help has arrived.
