When Do You Need a Life Alert® Fall Detection Device?

Falling poses one of the greatest health risks to folks over 65 years old. As our bodies age, we become more fragile, less balanced, and prone to accidents both inside and outside the home. While certain home improvements and do-it-yourself projects can help protect seniors from falls, many need contingency plans in case an accident happens. This is where medical alert systems can save lives.

Falling poses one of the greatest health risks to folks over 65 years old. As our bodies age, we become more fragile, less balanced, and prone to accidents both inside and outside the home. While certain home improvements and do-it-yourself projects can help protect seniors from falls, many need contingency plans in case an accident happens. This is where medical alert systems can save lives.

Many medical alert systems can include fall detection as an added feature. These devices, typically worn around the neck, can detect the difference between normal, everyday movement and a fall. When the device is triggered, it automatically connects to a call center, which can then send for help.

Those looking for medical alert systems with fall detection have plenty to consider. There are dozens of reputable providers out there, each vying for a place in your home. Life Alert® fall detection is among the many, and their services have created a very loyal user base over the decades. But, while the fall detection from Alert1 may not differ significantly from the rest, we think you’ll find that we have more accessible features and services.

The Differences Between Alert1 and Life Alert® Fall Detection

Life Alert® fall detection and Alert1 fall devices are functionally similar. Both use the same technology to automatically call for help when the device senses a fall. However, Alert1 offers this system at a lower price point. You may find that this makes our product a little more accessible. Our basic package has a lower cost, which we hope allows our customers to live more comfortably. We will also never lock you into a long-term contract. This means our users are free to use their devices for however long they need. Plus, unlike most other medical alert system companies, and we’ll stay on the line with you until help arrives.

We know we just threw a lot of information your way. The comparison grid below is designed to help you visualize some of the crucial differences between Alert1 and Life Alert® services.

Fall Detection is Important. Don’t Let Fees and Contracts Stand in Your Way.

As you can see in the above chart, Alert1 appears to deliver a less expensive product with more user-oriented services. Even though Life Alert® fall detection works as well as what we provide, you’ll spend less when you choose Alert1.

We make fall detection an option for our devices, but the reality is that fall detection is crucial for most users. Falls can be devastating to senior health. According to the National Council on Aging, falls are the leading cause of both fatal and non-fatal injuries for older Americans. They happen so frequently that an elder adult is treated in the emergency room for a fall every 11 seconds. We don’t think seniors should have to pay a premium for a potentially life-saving service.

Alert1 and Life Alert® fall detection work similarly, but Alert1 is consistently less expensive. This means that more users can access this necessary technology. We know that a lot of our members live on fixed incomes, which means lowering monthly costs is crucial. We hope our pricing helps our members receive the services they need to feel comfortable, whether in their homes or on the go.
