As you can probably tell already, there are many options for medical alert devices. We hope this short section helps you make scense of these different options.

  • Landline connected system: These are typically the most basic and affordable options. They are for use inside the house and while they do have good range (350-600 feet), they are not ment for those who are constantly on the go. Shop Landline Connected Systems.
  • On-The-Go (Mobile) systems: These, as the name suggests, are ment for seniors that are constantly on the go. They work anywhere in the USA and are opporated off of 3G cellular connections. This is the perfect option for those who like to get out of the house. Shop On-The-Go Systems.
  • Fall Detection Systems: This is a feature that you can add to either the Landline system or the On-The-Go (Mobile) systems. The fall detection will track your location via GPS in order to send medical help incase of a fall. These systems usually also have tempurature monitoring in order to provide real time data to health care professionals. Shop Fall Detection Systems.
