Q. Can the medical alert detect falls? How does fall detection work?

A. Yes, we offer medical alerts with advanced fall detection technology. Even if you fall and can’t speak, the medical alert can detect your fall and signal our 24/7 Command Center for help.  

Fall Detection has motion sensors that measure the speed and direction of the fall. The motion sensors watch for sudden, drastic changes to determine a fall. When a fall is detected, the motion sensors automatically send out a help signal to the Command Center. Fall detection does not detect 100% of falls - you should always press your button if you need help.
