Medical Alert Bracelets
If your loved ones slip, fall, or experience an emergency, you want them to get help as soon as possible. Our medical alert bracelets ensure help is just a button press away. With a tap, they'll connect to our SafetyChoice Centralized Monitoring Station. Once we receive an alert, we can send someone to their home to respond.
The bracelet gives an alternative to the traditional necklace or pendant options. Many seniors, particularly men, find the bracelet more convenient, and easier to use.
How they work
Our alert system does not need internet access or complex equipment. Instead, the bracelet sends an alert to a console connected to any phone line. This means they're easy to set up, and a built-in battery means they can work, even if the power goes out.
The consoles, known as Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS), contact the monitoring station. We offer several PERS, each with their own configurations and features. Find out more about them below:
Personal Emergency Response System G2000
Features a recording function for personalized messages or reminders
This system is great for people with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease, or other special needs who need the use of accessories, such as pressure mats or pillow switches. It is easily expandable as conditions change or more care and oversight of the senior are necessary.
With the simple push of a button on a wrist band or pendant, a caring, professionally trained representative at the SafetyChoice® Centralized Monitoring Station will answer the alert through the two-way, tabletop PERS console and respond to the call for help.
The SafetyChoice Centralized Monitoring Station will then dispatch the appropriate help and stay on the phone until help arrives, whether an ambulance, neighbor, family, or friends.
For added safety and security, the SafetyChoice PERS G2000 can monitor up to 16 safety devices. These include motion detectors, window/door contacts, and pressure-sensitive floor mats that can provide home security or monitor people who wander. Smoke and carbon monoxide detectors also can be added to the PERS.
