3 Things to Know Before Choosing a Medical Alert System

Personal Emergency Response Systems, also known as medical alert systems, consist of a base station and remote emergency button that can be worn as a wristband or pendant. If the wearer experiences a fall or another medical emergency, they can press the button and medical help will arrive in just a matter of minutes. Depending on the manufacturer and seller, a medical alert system can come equipped with different functions and features. Here are some things you need to consider.

How Active is Your Lifestyle?

If you're the type to take frequent walks in the park, you'll want to consider getting a cell-based medical alert system. These systems are slightly more expensive than traditional systems but feature GPS capabilities that can pinpoint your exact location if you experience an accident; however, they usually need to be charged every night. If you hardly leave the house, a traditional system might be the best choice for you. The range of these systems are much smaller and emergency personnel will find you based on the contact information you give your system provider.

What Kind of Contract Are You Looking For?

Be careful. Some medical alert systems will require you to sign a rigid contract that will require you to make payments on your system for over a year, even if you want to return it. On the other hand, some companies charge month-to-month payments, so you

 

can return your system virtually at any point. If you're expecting to have your system for a very long time, the former might not be an issue, but shorter contracts can save you a headache. Contracts might also require a fee for moving your system to a different location, so be sure to consult with a representative regarding this.

How Large is Your Property?

The signal range of the devices is important because if your alert button is out of range from the base station, it's essentially useless. It's fairly standard to have a range of approximately 600 feet, which should cover most houses; however, if you live on a large property like a ranch or farm, you'll want to get a system that has a much longer range. Better yet, consider a mobile medical alert device, as mentioned previously. You can take these systems practically anywhere with their GPS capabilities.
