Have you heard about the newest advances in medical alert systems? Today, there is no need to only be protected within the boundaries of your home and yard. You will stay safe with a medical alert system by your side anywhere you go, thanks to mobile medical alerts!  

WHO should use it?

You should consider using a mobile medical alert if:

  • You want to live safely and independently.
  • You have stumbled, been dizzy, or fallen in the past year.
  • You have been hospitalized or been to the emergency room in the past year.
  • You have any chronic ailments like heart disease, stroke, COPD, osteoporosis, diabetes or arthritis.
  • You take medications that cause dizziness or drowsiness.
  • You use an assistive device for balance and mobility. (Such as a cane, walker, wheelchair, stair climber or other assistive device.)
  • You live alone, or spend time alone while out of the house.

Mobile medical alerts are perfect for seniors who want to age in place in their golden years. These mobile alerts allow you to be protected not only in your home as with traditional medical alert systems, but on-the-go too! Don’t think you need a medical alert system because you have never had a fall? All it takes in one accident to set you back. Aging makes it harder to recover from medical emergencies. Play it safe and protect yourself before one even happens.

The best part about mobile medical alerts is that they help keep many different kinds of people safe. Seniors are not the only people who can benefit from a medical alert system. Alert1 protects members aged 7 to 107. Children have many of the same medical needs as seniors: asthma, diabetes, broken bones, heart and lung diseases, and many more. A mobile medical alert ensures your child stays safe no matter where they are.

The new mobile fall detection pendant allows seniors, younger adults, and children who are at risk for fainting or unconsciousness to stay safe. The fall detection pendant can sense a fall and call for help immediately. Anyone who uses a mobile medical alert will be one step closer to receiving help during an emergency. 

WHAT is it?
