How Do You Choose the Right Medical Alert System?
A medical alert system is a great way to ensure the safety of vulnerable people within their homes and outside where they may work or travel.
Medical alert systems operate with two components. These include the following:
-The button which is worn on the body either as a wristwatch, a bracelet, or a necklace.
-The base station which is placed somewhere in the home and waits to get a signal from the pendant button.
Types of Medical Alert Systems That You Should Know
Medical alert systems are designed in different categories. These include the following:
* By button
These are the conventional necklace style buttons, bracelets, or wristwatches.
* By mobility
These can detect lack of mobility or if someone has fallen.
Non-Monitored and Monitored
The monitored medical alert systems have their stations that call the emergency agency assigned by the company who then determine the nature of the situation.
The non-monitored alert system calls via a series of pre-programmed numbers like neighbours, friends, or family. A great medical alert system has a fall detection mechanism.
Things to Look for When Choosing a Medical Alert System
The essential services include the following:
* Battery life
Ensure that your device has long battery life. If your medical alert system is always on charge it will stress you a lot.
It is difficult to have a waterproof alert system, but water resistance is a plus.
* Return policies
Go for a company that is able to let you carefully examine and perhaps try their product. Most of the companies give three to four weeks of the return policy for their customers.
* Portable models
Ensure that your medical alert system is not too heavy.
Try to determine exactly what the needs are for the vulnerable individual and who you would want called in an emergency. You'll then need to look at prices, instalment, and durability.
