Philips LifeLine offers two different medical alert systems. Each of them comes with some basic equipment and services, but the main difference that might attract custom is their fall detection technology, which is able to automatically detect over 95% of falls.
Of course, the fall detection is likely to be of interest for anyone who's not always stable on their feet. It has a fall detection accuracy of over 95% so really seems like a system with practical applications. What's more, if someone should fall then it can send a message to the control centre and they can get in touch with the individual to make sure they're okay, or send help if they need it. This is achieved through 2-way voice communication with a trained professional, so there's also a caring voice to help out.
In comparison the Lifeline Standard system is less impressive, but still sufficient in most circumstances. This includes a waterproof help button that can be worn as a necklace or bracelet, a communicator and 24 hour access to the response centre. It's also worth noting that the design of the bracelet and necklace is much better than many medical emergency services provide. Although not “attractive”, they are far smaller and thinner than we've seen on most medical emergency websites. This means that they can easily be placed in a pocket, on the wrist or around the neck without standing out too much. Prices start at just under $30, which is about industry standard, although the auto-detect technology will cost more. If you're interested in finding out more about the fall detection then please make an inquiry with the sales team.
If you're not sure which products you might prefer, customers are able to leave reviews giving details of their experiences. This is a useful feature because it will allow you to get a real idea of how these devices have been used in day to day life, and how effective they were during an emergency. Meanwhile the site provides quite a lot of information regarding medical emergencies through its blog and resource centre.
Philips Lifeline offers a fairly standard service for a fairly standard price. However its fall detection technologies are certainly worth a second look, particularly if you or your loved one are prone to falls in the home. The site is worth exploring, even if you don't decide to become a customer, as it offers practical advice and articles on staying safe at home, particularly if you live alone.
