Fall Alert Pendants are the Most Effective Medical Alert Systems

An emergency response pendant is among the most important purchases a senior can make. A person’s likelihood of experiencing an accident increases as their health deteriorates. Sometimes, this health deterioration isn’t noticeable until you take a fall.

Seniors use medical alert systems for a variety of reasons. Whether you’ve had a previous accident or want to feel more comfortable living independently, medical alert systems are beneficial for most people over 65 years old. However, falls comprise a large proportion of senior accidents. This means fall alert pendants are becoming increasingly common among medical alarm users. But, as demand for this technology increases, so have the options available – and the average cost.

So, why is fall detection important in a medical alert pendant? We’ll walk you through the options we offer here at Alert1, as well as how a fall-detection pendant can help in your next emergency. 

Fall Alert Pendant Options from Alert1

We at Alert1 understand that not all seniors live similar lifestyles. We also understand that not all seniors are working with the same budget. We are proud to offer two separate fall alarm pendant options, each at a different price point and with different capabilities.

Our most popular fall detection medical alert pendant is available with our In-the-Home medical alert system. This model is designed for use within the home, and it does not require a landline. Instead it can connect to either a pre-existing landline or the T-Mobile network service. With a 400-foot range around the base and a showerproof button, this is a great option for seniors who spend most of their time at home.

For those with more mobility or who spend more time outside of the house, our On-the-Go pendant with fall detection may be the better option. This fall alert pendant uses that AT&T or Verizon networks and uses GPS, Wi-Fi, and cellular coverage to access your location if a fall is detected or if you push the button.

If you want both in-the-home protection and the convenience of on-the-go coverage, we also offer a convenient fall detection bundle

How a Fall Detection Alert Pendant Can Help You

Automatic fall detection is a service built into all fall alarm pendants. Designed to be worn around the neck or on the wrist, these pendants often use accelerometers to monitor movement. A fall alert pendant can detect the difference between normal activity, like walking, and abnormal activity, like a fall. The sensors look for clues like sudden drops followed by a period of no movement. The technology may sound complicated, but its application is simple: If you fall, the device will recognize the movement and it will call for help.

Automatic fall detection is an important add-on service for most seniors. Falls happen to most elderly folks, regardless of their mobility. In some cases, access to fast help can be lifesaving. It’s important to note that a fall alarm pendant will not detect every fall, and users should still press the alert button if they experience an emergency. Still, in the case where the user is somehow incapacitated, automatic fall detection can mean the difference between fast medical support and not getting the help you need.
