What is a Medical Alert System?
The medical alert system is a light weight wireless button that can be worn as a pendant, bracelet or on a belt clip. The alert can be activated by the push of a button, voice-activated, or an automatic call for help in the instance that a fall is detected or other emergency. When the medical alert is activated, a signal is transmitted to We Send Help's monitoring center where trained professionals can speak to the user through the button and dispatch help accordingly. It may be a notification to a family member or friend, or to emergency medical personnel depending on the nature of the emergency.

Medical Alert Features
Home Based Monitoring
The convenience of a home based monitor is that the buttons are smaller, lighter and do not need to be recharged. These medical alert systems have a small console, the range of the buttons is usually about 200ft, which allows the system to be used inside and around the outside of most homes. These systems also support Fall Detection, Activity Monitoring, and Voice Activation options. Voice Activation allows the user to activate an alarm even when not wearing the button.
GPS Monitored Medical Alert
GPS monitored medical alert devices provide medical and emergency monitoring from any location, home and beyond. The perfect solution for active seniors, and lone workers. Our SmartTracker device allows family members to locate the user on their smartphones, easily locating wandering users.
