The medical alert response system works by pressing a panic button that is connected by wireless technology to a console base. This base is programmed to call as many as four people consecutively until the call for help is answered. The system allows the person who answers the call for help to listen to the person in need to find out what type of problem they have. Once that has been identified, they can make sure any needed help is sent quickly and efficiently. When you use a medical alert response system, its general purpose is to contact emergency medical help for someone who has fallen or is injured in some way.
The systems today are programmable with your choice of numbers that can be local or even long distance. Who is programmed into the consoles is certainly a family or personal decision based on the lifestyle and medical issues of the person using the system, but recent research has shown that many who are given the medical alert response system to use only do so when they are in dire straits. This seems to be because they think that their emergency might not be as bad as they feared.
One new concept that has come about now has personal numbers being programmed into the response console. The reason behind this is that research has also shown that a medical alert user does not mind notifying someone they know or a relative where they might have issues in using the alert for the hospital. By using familiar people, it allows users to feel more comfortable about the system.
Medical alert response systems are easy to buy and use. Many can be researched and bought online. There are different types and prices but the more popular system costs less than $200 and has no added monthly fees. It can usually be mailed to someone within 3 to 4 days and can be set up and running smoothly in less than 15 minutes. The main requirements are a phone line, which can be provided by almost any telecommunications company, and an electric outlet. Most medical alarm system orders are available with a 30 day money back guarantee.
If you keep the system, there will be a one year warranty on the equipment. The panic buttons or pendants that are used to indicate the alarm situation can be purchased separately from the system. This allows someone to have and use more than one button per system. For example, someone could put a pendant in their bedroom, one in their bathroom, and one in their kitchen. This enables them to always have one in reach should they prefer to not wear it or forget to wear the pendant. Most medical alert systems have the same basic functionality which is to allow an individual to maintain a degree of independence while staying alone. These medical alert response systems give independence and peace of mind together for all family members and friends of the user.
