The Perfect Tool to Complement Your Fitness Routine: Alert1’s Medical Alert Watch

Alert1’s medical alert wrist watch can be a useful tool for any senior to have. It offers a variety of benefits that can assist the elderly on a daily basis. If you want an emergency response solution with bonus features, then you should consider this senior life-saving alert system.

The Alert1 mobile medical alert watch is the perfect tool for seniors looking to stay safe while meeting their fitness goals. If you experience a fall or medical emergency while exercising, you will have a quick and convenient way to contact a certified emergency response agent for help. You can talk to them through the built-in 2-way speaker and ask them to call either your loved one or a medical professional for help. The agent will also stay on the line with you until help arrives.

Be Safe While You Work on Your Fitness Goals

According to America’s Health Rankings, “A recent study found that around 10% of deaths among adults ages 40 to 69 and 7.8% of deaths among adults ages 70 and older were attributed to physical inactivity.” (1) With this in mind, it is important to stay active as you age. Doing so will keep both your mind and body healthy. Exercise offers many benefits for seniors including:

  • Improved strength and balance
  • Improved heart health
  • Reduced hypertension
  • Body weight management
  • Increased bone strength
  • Improved mental health and cognitive function
  • Stress relief
  • Better sleep
  • Reduced risk of falling

If you want to reap the benefits of exercise, Alert1’s medical alarm wrist watch is the perfect complementary tool to help keep you safe while trying to meet your fitness goals. FGB Law Firm states, “Generally, older adults in good physical shape walk somewhere between 2,000 and 9,000 steps daily, which is 1 and 4 ½ miles respectively.” (2)

The Alert1 medical alert watch features a pedometer app, so you can use it to track your steps. You can create a daily goal for yourself within the 2,000 - 9,000 range. Then you can use the pedometer app on your watch to check how many steps you have taken. By wearing the watch daily, you can track your steps to know if you are being active enough to maintain good overall health and wellness.

Health and Fall Prevention Exercises for Seniors

There are many different exercises you can perform while wearing your Alert1 on-the-go medical alert watch. Exercising regularly will help keep you strong, healthy, and reduce your risk of falling. A study by the US National Library of Medicine found that, “Men with low baseline fitness levels were 2.2 times as likely as highly fit men to fall while walking [and] women with low baseline fitness levels were 2.0 times as likely to fall.” (3) Some good aerobic and senior fall prevention exercises include:

  • Walking/Running – This aerobic activity can help strengthen your heart, manage your weight, increase stamina, and lower blood pressure.
  • Bike Riding – This aerobic activity offers similar benefits to running but can also improve balance and joint mobility.
  • Weightlifting/Resistance – This strengthening activity can improve muscle, bone, and joint strength.
  • Balance Exercises (Tai-Chi, Qigong) – These strengthening activities can improve balance, posture, flexibility, and muscle strength. They can also reduce your risk of injury.

Of course, you should always consult your physician before undertaking any new exercise program.

How The Emergency Alert Wrist Watch Can Keep Your Safe

The emergency response watch with SOS button can keep you safe while you exercise or while you perform other daily activities.

Falls

When you are on-the-go or exercising outdoors, you never know what kind of terrain you may face. If you encounter a hilly area, an uneven sidewalk, or gravel, it can be easy to misstep and fall. If you become injured or can’t get up on your own, you need to know that you have a quick and easy way to call someone for help.

The mobile medical alert watch for seniors can accomplish this task. If you fall and need help, you can simply press the SOS button on the side of the watch. This will quickly put you in contact with an emergency response agent. Then you can talk to the agent through the 2-way speaker built right into the watch. You can ask them to contact a loved one or medical professional for help. They will stay on the line with you until help arrives.

Medical Emergencies

Falls aren’t the only reason to have medical alert technology. If you are out exercising and feel a medical emergency coming on such as fatigue, a heart attack, or dizziness, you can press the alarm button to call for help. Even if you are unable to talk to the agent for any reason, they will send help.

Fires and Floods

You can use your medical alert device whether you are at home or away. If you get caught in a fire or stranded in a flood, you can use your emergency alert wrist watch to contact an emergency response agent for help.

Break-Ins

If you are home alone and think you hear an intruder, you can use your medical alert watch to summon immediate help.

Notable Alert1 On-the-Go Wrist Watch Features

How It Works

Alert1’s medical alert wrist watch looks just like a normal wrist watch. The face of the watch displays the time while a button on the side allows you to call a certified emergency response agent for help. When you hold this button down, a bar will appear on the face of the watch. When this bar fills up, you will be contacting an emergency response agent for help. When the agent comes on the line, you can talk to them through the 2-way speaker built into the device.
