Medical Alarms ::
Why you might want an Emergency 24/7 Medical Alarm
The CDC state that one in three elderly people fall at least once a year. The majority of these falls may not serious, however, the
person may not be able to get up on their own. Our alarms have saved Seniors because without the Emergency 24/7 Medical
Alarms and Monitoring they may not have been discovered for some time and their condition may have worsened considerable.
This is a way medical alarms prove their worth. Falling, and the fear of falling, can cause seniors to loose confidence in their ability
to cope on their own and inhibit what they do. Emergency 24/7 medical alerts restore the independence seniors deserve.
It's a fact of life that caring for a senior parent, partner or Grandparent by yourself is not always possible. Today most family
members rarely stay in the area in which they were brought up. Even if possible, it is a difficult task and one that not all family
members feel ready to undertake. Similarly, just because a person is elderly and perhaps a bit unsteady on their feet it does not
mean they need constant attention. A medical alarm from Emergency 24/7 allows them to maintain their independence by providing
the direct link to our monitoring station in case of an accident.
The Emergency 24/7 medical alarm consists of a simple electronic transmitter in the form of a pendant worn around the neck,
clipped on to a belt or wrist. The Emergency 24/7 alarm transmitter is a "3 in 1" and can be configured to any of these options.
The bathroom is the most common area of the house where falls happen. Our pendant was designed to be waterproof and can
even be worn in the bath or shower.
If the Senior wearing the pendant falls they simply press their emergency button. This action sends a signal to the main medical
unit and the transmitted to the external UL approved monitoring station. Within a minute, they will have received your alarm and
dialed your home number. They will then talk to you via a medical alarm console installed in your house. This is interactive two-way
voice communication and we can, in In this way you can describe what the problem is and the appropriate action can be taken.
This might only be alerting your neighbors, or it may be sending the emergency services. If your alarm is triggered and you cannot
speak, the paramedics will be sent automatically. .
Medical alarms reduce the severity of domestic accidents and cost much less then buying full time home help. If you or a member
of your family feel at risk from falling in, or around your home then a medical alarm will give you the confidence you need to continue
your domestic life.
