As loved ones age, we begin to worry about them, especially if they live alone. For many reasons, such as their age, health, but mostly them living alone, we may have concerns about the health and well-being of a parent, grandparent, or friend. What if no one is around when that person, needs help? Perhaps, you have concerns about what will happen if you are the one that needs assistance? How are you supposed to get help? Let Pioneer Emergency Medical Alarms help you! Whether you’ve fallen and you can’t get up or even having a stroke, heart attack, or seizure, Pioneer is happy to help. Surely you have many questions and we have answers! Here are just some of the basics:
How does a medical alert system work?
A medical alert system works through a medical pendant or bracelets that you wear around your neck, or wrist. They are completely waterproof, so it’s wearable in the tub, shower or even in your pool. All you have to do is press the panic button, in the case of an emergency. A few seconds later, our call Center will begin a conversation with you from the connected alarm console. Seems simple enough so far right?
What If the electricity goes out?
The alarm base of the medical alert system features a long life backup battery. It will work in an emergency from to 60 to 90 hours. That’s up to 3 days of battery life! Once power is back on, the battery recharges, so it is ready for any additional power outage.
How far from the medical alarm system can you be heard?
The alert base unit has a sensitive speaker/microphone. In most average home we will be able to hear from you from any room. In the event we can’t hear you, because you are having a seizure or another medical emergency, in which you are unable to speak, an ambulance will be automatically dispatched to your home.
What happens if I accidentally set off my medical alarm?
The alert pendant is designed to be pressed firmly in order to prevent any false alarms. Personalized options do exist for those that may have difficulty pressing the button.
