Medical Alert & Call Systems

Older adults and others often find themselves unable to call for help just when they need it the most. Alert systems make it much easier to do so; some even monitor health conditions and automatically call emergency services.

Alert systems include:

  • All-purpose "panic button" devices
  • Mobile devices
  • Fire and break-in sensors
  • Wristwatch-style fall monitors
  • Systems for the deaf and blind
