How do Medical Alert Systems Work?

How do Medical Alert Systems Work?

There’s plenty of stress that comes with aging, failing health, or simply living alone. Knowing that help will be reachable immediately in case of an accident or a sudden medical crisis can do a lot to ease that stress. Whether you’re looking to ensure the safety of yourself or a loved one, a reliable medical alert system can take a huge load off your mind.

However, the term “medical alert system” can sound a bit vague, plus there are so many different solutions on the market. Granted, it can be very difficult to know what you need and which system to choose.

Let’s break down the Get Safe medical alert system and explain exactly how it works and why you should consider installing it in your home.

The Basic Premise

The idea behind a medical alert system is rather straightforward: whenever you are in need of assistance, you press a button, pull a cord, use your voice to activate a unit, or press the button on your wearable to get the attention of the operator monitoring your system.

They are then able to provide the kind of help you need. They’ll get in touch with emergency services or notify a neighbor or loved one.

Given the fact that we can never know in advance what kind of help you might need and how you might be able to ask for it, we’ve designed four different ways to get it.

Most medical alert systems tend to rely on the wearable. This is certainly a great way to ensure your safety, but what if you don’t want to be wearing it around the home? This is why we’ve come up with our own system, one that works around you and will seamlessly blend into your home’s aesthetics.

Our Units

The Get Safe medical alert system consists of four different units that will strategically be placed around your home. They are designed to work together to ensure your safety and help you get help as soon as possible.

The Base Unit

Our base unit is easy to use and easy to set up. Most importantly, it is powerful enough to pick up your voice and transmit the voice of one of our operators in an emergency. It’s also sleek and quite compact, so you won’t hesitate to display it on your wall.

All you will have to do is press a button to attract the attention of our operator. They will then come over the line and ask if you are in need of assistance.

The battery of our base unit has 32 hours’ worth of backup charge. So, even if the power goes out, you will still be protected.

The Voice-Activated Wall Button

Then there is a voice-activated wall button. It can come with a cord if that’s what you prefer, but its main feature is voice activation. All you have to do is say “call 911, call 911”, and help will be on the way. You can also push the button if that happens to be the easiest course of action.

The unit is 100% wireless, so by strategically placing it around your home, specifically in high-risk fall areas, you will ensure you are protected at all times. It’s also water-resistant, so you won’t have to worry about placing it near the shower.

We also have a more traditional wall button. It is not voice-activated, and you can place it anywhere you feel you might need one. It’s also water-resistant and wireless. All in all, it’s a compact device you just stick on your wall – no complicated installation involved.

We’ve also made sure you don’t have to worry about accidentally pressing that big red button. It’s recessed, so you won’t be able to activate it simply by brushing against it. But, in case of an emergency, the bright red will instantly get you the help you need.

The Optional Wearable

Finally, there’s the wearable. You don’t need to have it around your neck at all times, as our medical alert system was designed to work around you. But in case you want to be extra safe, we provide a help button you can wear.

There’s also the option of automatic fall detection, in case you’re not sure whether you will be able to press a button or call for help.

The entire device is light and completely waterproof, plus it has up to 5 years of battery life. You can wear it in the shower and the pool, ensuring you are protected at all times.

The Benefits of a Medical Alert System

A medical alert system’s main benefit is that it provides peace of mind. Whether you are worried about yourself or a loved one, when you install our system, you can rest assured help will be on its way as soon as something happens.

Of course, the most obvious benefit is that help will be on its way immediately if there’s an accident. But if you never experience one (which we hope will be the case), you won’t have to spend any mental energy on contemplating what-ifs and potential scenarios.

Don’t think of a medical alert system as a sign of getting old or being ill. What if you simply happen to strain your back and have difficulty moving about? Or sprain an ankle tripping over one of your slippers? This can happen to anyone, and instead of hobbling over to the phone, you can simply call out for our operator, and someone will be there to assist you in no time.

To Sum It Up

Having a medical alert system in your home means you never again have to worry about having an accident of any kind. Whether your health is not what it should be, you live alone, or you’re simply getting on in years, you will sleep more soundly knowing you always have a simple and accessible way to get help if you ever need it.

Make sure you and your loved ones are protected and feel absolutely safe in your home, and get in touch with us today. We’ll be more than happy to provide that sense of security you’re looking for.
