Find The Best Medical Alert Systems For You

Emergency Alarms, Buttons and Wearables with Fall Detection & GPS for Senior Safety

About Medical Alert Systems

With one of Medical Guardian’s medical alert devices, you can rest assured knowing that you can have access to help should you need it, allowing you to continue to live your life on your own terms as you age.

Medical alert devices, which have also been referred to as personal alarms for seniors or emergency alert buttons, have come a long way since their introduction on the market back in the late 1970’s, both in the technology and the way they are marketed. You may remember old commercials that presented seniors as old, feeble and helpless – an image that stuck with people for years. But Medical Guardian was born out of the idea that existing medical alert device companies were not really seeing or understanding the needs of the modern senior, who is not only living longer than generations prior, but also living more independently as they age.

That’s why Medical Guardian aims to offer customers a variety of medical alert devices to choose from, including small, portable emergency alert buttons that can be used outside of the home. Research has shown that the majority of seniors today would prefer to age in place, or remain in their own home as they grow older, and Medical Guardian’s medical alert systems allow them to do that in a safe and connected way. No matter which medical alert system you choose, when you press the emergency button you’re guaranteed to be connected to an emergency operator who can arrange for the type of help you need. Whether that means sending for emergency responders, like EMTs or the fire department, or calling your list of contacts to come help you, Medical Guardian’s monitoring center will have you covered 24/7.

Medical Alert Company Ratings & Reputation

Many important factors should be considered when choosing a medical alert device company to purchase from.

Everything from the medical alert company’s reputation with existing customers, to special technological features, to the cost of the devices should be a part of the research process.

  • Reputation (reviews, customer service, complaints)

    Medical Alert Systems Reviews

    A great way to determine the reliability and value of a medical alert company is by reading medical alert systems reviews with a third party review site. There are great resources available to consumers these days, including Best Company, Medical Alert Comparison and Consumers Advocate, which provide trustworthy and unbiased medical alert systems reviews from seniors and their loved ones.

    Customer Service

    In addition to checking out a medical alert company’s reputation through third party reviews, it is also recommended to listen to what people are saying about their customer service before making a buying decision. At Medical Guardian, we are proud to have received a Silver Stevie Award for Customer Service Department of the Year in the Healthcare, Pharmaceuticals and Related Industries Category. A Stevie Award is one of the most prestigious honors that can be bestowed upon a customer service team, which is a true testament to how hard we work to keep our customers happy!

    Complaints

    While no company enjoys receiving poor reviews for their products or customer service, it is important to also review the complaints that people make to determine whether or not a poor review was a fluke or if it is a distinct pattern of behavior. It’s even more telling to see how the company reacts and responds to the complaints they recieve. Social media is an excellent resource to review complaints that customers have left for medical alert companies and see for yourself how the companies have handled those complaints.

  • Features (gps, fall detection, mobile, cellular)

    GPS Capabilities

    GPS, which stands for Global Positioning System, is a technology that allows the monitoring center to pinpoint a customer’s location once they’ve pressed their emergency button. For those who intend to use their medical alert device outside of the house, having a medical alert system with GPS can be a huge selling point because it guarantees that emergency services can find you regardless of whether you know where exactly you are.

    Fall Detection

    One of the more recent advancements in medical alert systems is fall detection, which can detect when a fall has occurred and trigger a call for help, even when you are unable to. Fall detection is an ideal add-on for those who have already experienced falls at home, have suffered a heart attack or stroke, or simply want an additional layer of protection to come with their medical alert device.

    Mobile Devices

    Mobile medical alert devices act in a similar fashion to cellular phones, except they are paired with a wearable emergency alert button that connects directly to a monitoring center. Unlike a cellular phone, mobile medical alert devices can come with you in the shower and allow you to call for help even if you have left your phone in the other room.

  • Pricing

  • wrist button

    Pricing is usually one of the most important factors when making a decision to buy a medical alert system. The cost of a medical alert device, however, cannot be determined solely by a price tag. There is additional value in things beyond the medical alert device, such as the monitoring center, customer service and speed of response. In addition, some medical alert device companies might have different plans of service depending on which system you decide to purchase.

Types of Medical Alert Devices

Over the years, we’ve learned that no two customers are alike. We’ve gone to great lengths to create a variety of products for every budget and lifestyle.

Some people prefer to have medical alert devices only for the home, while others need reliable protection when they’re outdoors or on the go. No matter which of our medical alert systems you choose, Medical Guardian’s 24/7 monitoring services provide access to help wherever you need it most.

    Emergency Button Size

    It seems as though technology has the ability to shrink everything down these days and that includes the size of the emergency buttons for medical alert devices. Many people are uncomfortable wearing large heavy buttons around their wrist or neck, and the more recent emergency button designs are smaller and sleeker than past models.

    GPS Capabilities

    GPS is a standard feature on mobile alert buttons in 2018. Whether or not you can give them your exact coordinates, GPS-enabled mobile alert systems allow the emergency responders, police, or fire to locate you in order to provide you with the help that you need. When you have a medical alert device with GPS, you’ll still have access to help if you fall in a mall parking lot, a hiking trail in the woods, or out for a walk in your neighborhood.

  • Fall Alert Pendant

    Fall Detection

    Automatic fall detection is one of the best technological advancements that has come to the medical alert device industry in recent years. A fall alert system automatically detects when a fall has occurred and will trigger a call for help without the need to press a button. This is ideal for anyone who is concerned about being physically unable to press and emergency alert button due to injury or medical emergency, providing an added sense of peace of mind.

    Mobile Options

    Seniors are now more active and independent than ever before, which has encouraged the medical alert device industry to create more mobile devices to match their lifestyle. In addition to the standard mobile medical alert devices that work outside of the house, the best mobile medical alarms for 2018 are even more advanced, providing consumers with fall detection technology and even a multi-functional smartwatch medical alert system.
