Medical alert systems are alert systems that are used to call for help in the case of an emergency. These personal emergency response systems are ideal for the elderly, the disabled, expecting mothers and others who are in need of 24/7 emergency service.
Typically, medical alert systems are used by people who need emergency care and assistance. A person who is in need of medical emergency support usually has the medical alert system on his/her person so that it can be easily activated by the press of a button. The medical alert system then automatically sends a message or signal to the emergency center and it is received by the person designated for emergency support such as a doctor, family member or friend. Immediate action is taken and the user receives quick medical emergency service.
There are several types of medical alert systems available in the market today. Most of the alert systems are connected through your phone line and are similar to an answering machine. A typical medical alert system is a console that is equipped with a very loud speaker and a microphone which will enable you to communicate with the designated emergency operator. Medical alert systems and products such as medical alert alarms, medical alert jewelry, medical alert tags and medical alert identification also work in a similar fashion. They are equipped with a wireless transmitter that connects with the console automatically on activation. The console then immediately calls for help. A trained emergency professional will then contact you through the console. In case of no answer from the user, the operator dispatches help automatically. Designated family members and friends are also alerted immediately by the professional.
A medical alert system gives the user instant medical service throughout the year with just the push of a button. These alert systems assure you and your family complete safety and security by providing instant help in emergency situations.
Medical alert systems can be used in any location including work places and homes.
