It was a very easy device to get set up. When we tested it, the gentleman who answered was very cool and calm. He reassured us we'd done the right thing and that he'd reset the instrument for the next time we test it or need to use it. I wish there were some stations that were big enough to cover my entire house because I can't be very far from the main for it to work.

Nice looking and not obtrusive, the device is something I can wear inside or outside underneath my top. I wear it in the shower. The representatives are very professional and it is easy to fix things. I think it's important that the customer service representatives know when they're dealing with elderly people or disabled people that they need to give them a chance to say what they have to say and ask the questions that can be answered and they were very good at that.

I like knowing that I could get help immediately if I need it. They were very polite--they were right on top of the the process of me pushing that button and then answering--I felt confident I knew somebody was there if I needed them. It's a little pricey but it's worth the security and the peace; it's just a little bit more than I'd like to spend on it, but I have no intentions of giving it up.

Well they're very reliable every time. I live in a place where the telephone reception is not great and so I tested it several times at all hours of the day and night and I tested in every room in the house and every time I tested it I got a a very prompt response from the company and it was very well done, I thought. I think it's it's a very good system with the exception that if you fall and lose consciousness, I'm not sure it set off the alarm unless you fell in a certain way. There is one problem that I was actually going to call the company and tell them about it and that is the following: It's supposed to protect the patient. If I should fall down, that should trigger the system. The problem is that if you fall on your back or fall on your side, it will not activate the mechanism. You've got to fall on your stomach. If the floors are hard, it'll set it off, but if you fall on the carpet, chances are not good that it is going to get set off.

It works. We feel really safe with it, it's easy. When we tested it, it worked fine. They called immediately the couple of times we did it accidentally, and we're really impressed with it. We really haven't had a big need for it, neither one of had fallen you know since we got it but yeah we're impressed with Medical Guardian. Anytime we've got a question, they've always been easy to contact and and answered readily--everybody's really nice to deal with.

I've tested it recently when I accidentally hit the button on the table but the response was real good and thank goodness I haven't had to really use it. I'm very pleased with the with the response. I like the fact that it gives me a certain amount of security in the case of an accident or fall or whatever and I like that it gives me peace of mind.

Well it's dependable. I was in my car, I put on my seat belt and was checking my feet to see if they were in the right place and it went off so it's very sensitive. I just told the person that called or answered that I was okay and the customer service rep was very concerned, so I can tell that it's very dependable and it's good. They were very helpful and answered my questions. It gives me a good feeling of security.

I like it because I'm alone and if I fall or something happens it's there to help me. I did use it just because I've had it for a while and just see if it works or not, and they answered right away and I talked to them and one of the times it accidentally went off and they were immediately there and talking to me, making sure that I was okay so, you know, I like it.

Well it gives me peace of mind knowing that if I fall I'm gonna be able to get help. I live by myself and it's it's nice to know that if I fall, even if I was unconscious, somebody would check on me and know where I was. When I called to test it, I asked if they knew where I was and they told me exactly where I was so I know that even if I was not able to talk they would be able send help to where I was. It's a great comfort to me.

I dislike how big it is, it's a necklace with GPS and I wish it was smaller. I purchased this device for my mother, and their customer service was very intuitive when I explained my situation and my mom's needs and they recommended products that met those needs. They really went above and beyond. I tested it this morning after charging it and it was great it calls the dispatcher very quickly and I could hear her clearly and she could hear me clearly.

I'm happy to have it there in case I need it. I have tested it--I dropped it on the floor and it did reacted and you answered and everything. It's good for falls, that's why I got it. I can't think of too much that I don't like except that it irritates my neck, I have to put something under my neck because it irritates it and causes it to itch.

I used it for a short period of time for my sister who was on hospice and it gave me peace of mind knowing if for some reason she had to be alone that there was a way of her being able to get help so that really gave me peace of mind. We had to used it one time when she fell and that it worked out well. Support was just very compassionate and knowledgeable and explained things calmly so she could understand it, even if she was under a lot of stress. She felt well taken care of. It was a necessary thing at the time, at it worked out really well--it was very responsive and good.

When we were initially looking up the system, they were very responsive to us and answered all our questions and followed up with me. We did the test fine, the operators are very nice and very responsive. My mom has no problems hearing them which is a good thing--that was a concern of ours--and everything is handled very professionally and they speak loud enough that she could hear. It's a very good product, it's very easy for my mother to use even with the with the charging because of the accessibility of it for her. It just really eases her mind when she's alone.

They're very kind and considerate like when he hits it by accident they've been very good about talking to them, I love the communication the system and the watch and the necklace all are great, the base is great everything the equipment are all great. I'm very pleased with all of it.

After having MG for only a few months, I fell sideways off of a step stool and heard the bones in my ankle crack. I couldn’t move. I connected with a MG operator who sent the EMTs to my house. They rushed me to the hospital with all the bones in my ankle needing to be relocated (first surgery) and then pinned (second surgery). I can just now walk on it. Who knows how long I would have been on the floor in terrible pain. MG saved me!!

So far I am very satisfied. I’m used to wearing it. When I leaned on button by mistake, the lady asked if I was alright. I was wondering if that was the nurse who had come in and then I realized it was the speaker on the table so I told her that it was a mistake. She was very understanding and she reset the box for me. It's a it's a relief to know that if I fall and can't get to a phone that somebody's on the alert.

I like that this device can always go with us around the house and the fact that we can take it out of the house too. My husband fell once and after we called them they came very quickly and were able to get him up and comfortable again. The people on the other line are very good and kind and the first responders that came to us were amazing. I'd recommend Medical Guardian to anybody with no hesitation.

I dislike the fact that it's heavy around my neck. I'm a small person, and the cord is very long and hits my waist. I'm always afraid I'm going to turn on the device accidentally. Other than that, I'm very happy with it. I've tested it once and the gentleman who answered talked to me right away and was very courteous. He asked me if it was just a test and I said yes. The salesman who talked to me was very helpful in telling me exactly what I needed to do before I agreed to sign up with the company.

I like everything about the device. I've never felt more secure in my life and I'm really pleased. Unfortunately, I hit the button by mistake maybe twice over the last few days but the person who called couldn't have been nicer or more understanding. I like the necklace because I have it there all the time with me. Customer support is absolutely wonderful because they're easy to talk to, very efficient, and kind.

The price for the service is very reasonable for the coverage. It allows us peace of mind since help is a push of a button away. It is very simple. We tested tit k make sure it was operating correctly and it was simple to hold down the button until it vibrated and soon someone was on the phone to ask if we needed help. They were quick to answer the phone and they were nice and polite.

I wish it was a little cheaper. At forty dollars a month it is a little expensive for someone on a fixed income but my children insisted that I get it. I’ve had it for a month and so far I’ve had no problems with it. I wear it and charge it in the morning. Somebody answers right away if I press the button. The man’s voice is wonderful. He should be an actor.

The thing I like most is that I am confident now when I am by myself walking. I do fall a lot and so it assures me that I can get helpful quickly because I do not always carry my cellphone but this is always around my neck. The only thing I don’t like is the fall but other than that it is great. It has set up so the local fire department can put in a code on the door.

Bought it for my mother in law and as a daughter in law it gives me peace of mind to know if she needs me, she can get in touch with me if there is an emergency. It has been easy for her to use because it is user friendly. We test it once a month to make sure it is still working properly. They’re extremely courteous. They ask the right questions to make sure she is okay.

This device is very convenient. I love having it hang around my neck. It's there if I need something, all I have to do is press the button and somebody is always there to answer.

She's hard of hearing and it's not very loud so if she's not in the same room with it then she can't hear what they're saying at all. She wishes that it had an option to connect with the bluetooth device or something like her phone. Everything we asked has been properly answered without any hesitation or issues. We also liked that they provided us with the lock pads for one of the doors to put their key there in case my brother and I were unavailable. That way emergency responders have a way to check on my mom.

The few times I have contacted them they have been very responsive. There is no value on my mom. I was very concerned about her and now I am not so concerned because she is wearing the wrist band which has an alert if she falls. It has been great. Each time we test it, 3 times plus 4 times accidentally, they were very patient and kind and answered right away. The range is fantastic. It works in every location in her apartment.

Without recharging it, it can last several days and then you can recharge it in a relatively short amount of time, 2 to 3 hours, so you don’t have to be without your pendant much. It is worth every penny. If you need anything, they are always willing to do it. You don’t ever have to feel like you are a pain to push the button. They’re cordial and nice and polite. The response time is quick.

I reaserched other medical devices and decided on Guardian because of other reviews and the cost. After deciding upon this company and contacting them, I received a lot of information and help from the customer service agent that I talked to. After receiving it i was able to set it up quickly. Luckily, my sister has not needed to use it, but I feel better about her being alone in her home knowing that she can get help quickly in an event of a fall or accident.

When there is problem, it is taken care of within seconds. It works very well. I never take it off. My family is very proud of me for doing that because I need to wear it. When it goes off by accident, it is taken care of quickly. I know if I fall, I am not going to lie here for hours. Somebody is here to help me. I enjoy everyone of them, they make me feel good.

Very good salesmanship, the representatives who sold me the device were very knowledgeable and to the point. They did not repeat themselves whatsoever. I felt like I knew everything I needed to know when I closed the deal. It all went smoothly. Other people go for a cheaper price but sometimes that is outweighed by poor quality. When we press the button, the operator comes on like it is supposed to. They are polite.

I pay for it from my mother and mother in law. It gives me peace of mind. I like knowing they can get help immediatle when they are alone during the day when I am at work. My mother in law doesn’t fully understand it. She pushed the button and they ended up calling. I am still getting her to understand how it works. They have been so kind when my mother in law does it. They are very willing to help us out.

Worth every penny I have spent so far. I had to use it shortly after I purchased it. They were able to call the EMS here quickly, though unfortunately the lock box they gave me didn’t work so they had to find another way in but they sent me a new one which now works and did not charge me for the extra one. When I accidentally triggered it, they said it was no big deal. I am newly widowered all I live in this house alone so it is good to know if I fall, somebody is there to have my back.

We’re enjoying everything, the only thing I would suggest is it needs to be a little lighter if it is possible, it is heavy around the neck. Everything else it totally positive. They are always polite and helpful. It was used about two and half weeks ago when she was really sick and was going to pass out and Medical Guardian called me immediately after calling 911. It went really smoothly.

Ellen Cole Brookline, MA

In general, I'm quite pleased with the device. I was initially disappointed that I couldn't wear it in the shower (as promised by the sales agent on the phone), but that's not a big problem; I keep it in a plastic container on the floor outside the shower. I also realized that it was quite uncomfortable to wear on the cord around my neck, but I put it into my sports bra or into a pocket, and it's just fine. I don't realize I'm wearing it. My only real complaint was that when I tested it two weeks ago for its monthly checkup, I got a message that said my call couldn't go through. I took me quite a while to find the customer service telephone number, which SHOULD BE in large letters on the packing box and MAYBE ON THE DEVICE AS WELL. It took quite a lot of back-and-forthing before the representative and I could make my device work again. Now I've been asked to check it every week. So I did it last week, and it worked fine, but if that had been a real emergency, it would have been a disaster. The representative made a point of explaining to me, as though I were an idiot, that electronic devices sometimes have problems. Unfortunately for the company, the request for this review came right after that, so I was feeling pretty hostile, but I've gotten over that and calmed down. I'm sure this kind of thing happens with devices from all companies. I do recommend Medical Guardian, but if you do get one, post the customer service number in several obvious places.

This is easy to use, easy to set up, and it's very efficient. It works great they notified me immediately, as it was for my father. They notified me immediately and paramedics were called and the issue was resolved. They also stayed on the line. It's a little hard communicating specific requests. I've had to I have a very specific needs and it's been a little difficult to get that enacted but cutomer service is good overall.

We feel very fortunate to have medical guardian because I am going to be seventy nine September first. It is an excellent device. It is on me 24/7 and it meets my needs and what my family wants. Everybody is kind and explain everything with no hesitation. I am happy with the company as are my daughter and son in law. We definitely chose the best product.

It's a great service. I had another service prior to this and I fell a couple of times and I could not hear anyone talking, that is why I like medical guardian better. I don’t have to be close to a monitor or any other piece of equipment. I like that I carry around the thing by wearing it around my neck. I speak right into it and someone responds.

The pendant works very well. It protects my wife’s life. One time she got lost ten miles from her house and she used the device to alert me and they called me and we got her straightened out. That was very effective. I think having the GPS is the most important thing. It is good that the client can travel out of their houses. I am impressed with that.

I wish is took a longer charge, I am charging it about every five days, which I understand is normal, I just wish it would be even a couple more days. I like that there is no monitor box that I have to keep in the center of my house. Everything is self contained to the pendant. They are very prompt and pleasant and professional and courteous and knowledgeable.

I had planned on using the bracelet but it is so ugly and big so I keep that one handy in the bedroom in case I need it at night. Also the chain irritated my neck so I put the black cord on the one around my neck. It is easy to put on and off. Once I was without power for 24 house and the battery was still working. It was comforting to know it worked that well.

A very clear explanation about your product was given me when I made my inquiry. I just wish the wrist band was not so sensitive to set off, I have stopped wearing it and only wear the neck one. I know it is important to use this is one if needed to but my great-grand son barely touched it and here they came, fire, police, ambulance, needless to say I was very embarrassed and felt bad they has to be on a false alarm.

I like the security it gives you and the peace of mind it gives you and your children. My son travels all over the country and thought I needed it so I got it to make him happy and it makes me feel safe because I do live in the country and I don’t have any access to fast help if I have a serious problem. I get around pretty good for my age, 79 years old and I hope I never have to use it but I know it is available. The company called me back when I tested it, it was wonderful.

When we first ordered it, part of the activation was to call and test it. We did it and we got an immediate response. We told them it was a test and we felt really good about using it for the future because we got a quick response. I spoke with the really nice man that helped us and walked us through the whole process. Very nice, patient young man. We got everything through the main and I've had a couple people follow up with a phone call to make sure that everything was good.

It works. I had to make one call and emergency personnel arrived within minutes. They didn't have my new garage code, so they had to break a window; but the company is going to make good on it. We are not sure why the new code was not transmitted. That was corrected immediately after the mishap. Mistakes happen, and I was extremely pleased by their offer to help.

I trust Medical guardian. It gives me confidence that I will have a response in the event I have a fall or some other emergency. In at least two occasions with the past month, I have had falls where I punched the pendant and I had a response and the fire department here within about fifteen to twenty minutes. They helped me get to my feet. It is not an overstatement to say this pendant saved my life.

Recommended Medical guardian to a couple of people who are in the apartments I live in, we’re all retired people, because I like the security of having it because I am in a wheelchair and sometimes I fall and then I don’t have anybody to help. One time in particular, I feel down and spent almost six hour on the floor so having Medical Guardian is great because it works and someone comes on right away and wants to know if I need help. The only problem I have had it they were sending me things saying my machine was not working and they had to fox it right up.

The security helps a lot, knowing help id just a press of a button away. I feel secure having it on my wrist because I had problems with my equilibrium at times and the system makes me feel more secure in the house. It is convenient to use and it was no problem hooking it up or anything. I am really satisfied. The customer service representatives were caring people who wanted to make sure I was protected. They want 110 percent satisfaction.
