Choosing a medical alert system can be overwhelming. Not sure where to start? We're here to guide you through the process and help you select the best option for your lifestyle.
Whether you're considering a medical alert system for yourself or a loved one, you may feel like now is not the right time, or simply that the cost is too high. However, when you look at the bigger picture, you may be surprised how liberating and affordable it is to have the protection of a medical alert system.
Medical Guardian's wearable devices are small, lightweight and discreet. In fact, they're completely invisible when worn under clothing or clipped inside a purse. With its sleek design, the Freedom Guardian looks like a stylish smartwatch, not a medical alert device.
While you may not be concerned about your safety now, accidents and other unexpected health concerns become increasingly likely as we get older. For example, each year 1 in 4 people age 65 or older suffers a fall. After you've fallen once, your chance of falling again unfortunately doubles. Additionally, throwing out your back, unexpected bouts of vertigo, and other accidents are all reasons why having a medical alert system can ensure your safety.
The good news is that 90% of older adults who get help within one hour will be able to return home and resume their lives. Being proactive ensures that if an accident does happen again, the help you need is on the way.

Medical Guardian devices are designed with all lifestyles in mind. Whether you're relaxing at home, working out at the gym, or visiting your doctor, we have an option to suit your needs.
Cost is an understandable concern. However, the cost of not investing in a medical alert device can be more devastating than investing in one. Experts refer to the first hour after a fall occurs as the "golden hour." Receiving medical attention during this critical time has been shown to dramatically decrease medical costs and increase survival rates. After the first hour, treatment becomes riskier and is more likely to result in the need for rehabilitation and costly long-term care. For about $1 a day, you and your loved ones can feel the peace of mind that comes with 24-hour emergency response at the push of a button.
Your risk of falling increases with age. However, medical alert devices are helpful for non-emergency uses, as well. You can use Medical Guardian's non-emergency dispatch services at any time. Simply press the button on your medical alert device and connect with our 24/7 monitoring center. This is helpful if you're not feeling well, get stuck and need assistance, have flare-ups of a medical condition, endure an allergic reaction to food or medication, or if something is making you uneasy and you need someone to talk to.

Cell phones are handy, but they don't replace the need for a medical alert device. Unlike a cell phone, Medical Guardian devices, such as the Mobile Guardian's emergency wrist button, are water resistant, meaning you're protected even while in the shower. Because the devices are worn around the neck or on the wrist, help is always within reach. A single button press activates our medical alert devices, setting them apart from even the most user-friendly cell phone.
While some smartwatches and fitness trackers have safety features, they're not intended for emergency use. From start to finish, the Freedom Guardian was specifically developed for those at greater risk of facing a medical emergency. With a one-touch help screen that connects to 24/7 personalized dispatch and fall detection capabilities, the Freedom Guardian is the premiere device for on-the-go safety and peace of mind.

Here's what customers have to say about Medical Guardian.
"My daughter got Medical Guardian for me and I'm very satisfied with it. They sent me the one I wear on my neck so I bought a gold chain for it and I use it all the time. I just had my 90th birthday and I have arthritis. I also have the shingles and it had paralyzed my eyes and left me with a double vision, so sometimes I can't find footing when I walk and I could stray. Sometimes in the house, I'm fine but when I go outside I'm not. My kids wanted me to move with them but I don't want to live with anyone. I'm alone and they're concerned so Mobile Guardian is a security blanket for me. Everyone who lives alone should have Mobile Guardian and I recommend it because I feel safe with it."
"From the first moment I called to ask a slew of questions, I was treated with patience and respect. I was researching these devices for my mother and my sales rep, Bill, could not have been more helpful. I was provided honest answers and was even told I didn't need to purchase the more expensive system, as my mother wasn't ready for that type of system yet. Who does that?!
We feel confident we made the right decision for my mother regarding both the system we got for her as well as the company that stands behind it. Thanks to everyone at Medical Guardian for giving us all peace of mind about our mother's well-being."
"We've had to use it twice. My husband has had a stroke and he fell in his in his bedroom and I could not hear him because I was at the other end of the house and so he pushed that he was able to reach his necklace and he pushed a button and I heard the intercom then which is in our living room say you know help is on the way and then I ran in there and he was on the floor but had he not had that to push I don't know how long he would lay there. They're just very dependable always there and I'm so happy that we did this and now my husband."
"I have cancer and other things that are going physically wrong with my body. Because of that, my wife thought that I needed something to be safe, even when she wasn't at home with me.
We picked Medical Guardian out of 3 companies we looked at and things have been good. I was out one day during the summer when it was 103 degrees outside. For whatever reason, I felt myself passing out and pushed my button. Next thing I know, the EMTs were there with an ambulance and I was on my way to the hospital. "
"My Mother wore the Medical Guardian one full year before she had to use it. The first few months she kept forgetting to put it on and told me it was 'dumb' and that I was 'wasting my money'.
I was only gone for an hour and-a-half when she needed it. It worked beautifully. MG called me On my way home from church had told me the paramedics would be at my house when I got there. They were absolutely wonderful. There are not enough stars to rate this company!"
