Is a Necklace Alert Right for You?

Whether you wear a necklace alert, a bracelet option, or a belt holster, not every senior feels good about wearing a medical alert system. We recognize that comfort with these devices will vary by person – that’s why we provide so many options and accessories. If you want your medical alert to stand out, we have a gorgeous purple wristband option. If you want a slightly subdued look, you can invest in a belt holster for your on-the-go system.

That said, almost all our alert systems come standard with a medical alert necklace or pendant option. It can be tough to figure out if this is all you’ll need to feel comfortable, secure, and stylish with your device. If you’re not sure if a standard alert pendant is right for you, the below guide is designed to help you figure it out.

Deciding on a Necklace Alert

Most of our medical alert systems come standard with a necklace or pendant wearing option. While not the most inconspicuous way to wear a medical alert system, this is a great option for a lot of people. If you fall into any of these categories, a necklace may be all you need to feel comfortable with your device.

·         You tend to fiddle with jewelry. Necklaces are a great option for folks who absently play with jewelry on their hands, like rings, bracelets, and watches. Some people like to wear wristband medical alert systems for the convenience, but others find this distracting. By contrast, a necklace alert is comfortable. Most people barely feel it while wearing.

·         You need added fall detection. While fall detection technology has come a long way in recent years, wristband fall alerts are the final frontier. For now, the only reliable fall alert technology is available in necklace form. This is because it is difficult for these gadgets to distinguish regular arm movements from falls. A necklace more reliably detects falls and unnatural movements that could indicate an emergency.

·         You like your alert to be visible. Necklaces are among the most easily recognized types of alert systems. If you like your alert to stand out – either as a style choice or for safety reasons – a necklace is the way to go. Plus, you can easily customize your necklace with a lanyard that suits your style.

Remember that medical alert systems are very versatile accessories. While you might feel comfortable wearing your alert as a necklace one day, you might change your mind the next. We offer several accessory options to allow our users to wear their devices in a way that is most comfortable to them – even if it changes every week.
