Technology-Enabled-Care-Services have designed medical alert equipment like personal alarms, fall alert system to make the life of people dealing with medical conditions and those of the elderly, safe and secure. They also give the required peace of mind to the caretaker and help individuals live a dignified and independent life. But there are several misconceptions associated with the medical alert systems that make people apprehensive about purchasing them:
TOO MUCH OF TECHNICALITY:
Yes, we understand, it can be difficult for our aging parents and grandparents to follow the knicks and knacks of a mobile-based technology system. Keeping this into account, TECS like SureSafe have devised alerts systems with easy installation and just one button to press when requiring any help.
THEY ARE NOT AFFORDABLE:
With a SureSafe medical alert system, you don’t have to pay any upfront fee, and it facilitates affordable monthly payments ensuring that they are safe and secure without breaking their bank.
THEY ARE UNCOMFORTABLE TO WEAR:
Just because we assume it’s medical equipment, it must be a huge and uncomfortable to wear, which is far from the truth. TECS are designing medical alert systems that are small and discreet. They can be worn as a bracelet on the wrist and as a pendant on the neck.
BUT WE ALL LIVE TOGETHER:
What if you are off to work? You would say, we have other family members to take care of each other, right? But imagine a scenario, where there’s no one at home, and your loved ones need help. How will you ensure that they get immediate help? By getting them an alert system.
NOT AN EXPANSIVE RANGE:
This is a common misconception that medical alert systems are built for small range applications, which is false. Medical alert systems like SureSAfe Personal Alarms have an extensive range network coverage with their SIM covering all primary mobile network providers, making sure that mobile network does not get in the way of their safety and security.
WHY NOT JUST USE A MOBILE PHONE?
Unlike a mobile phone, a medical alert system will provide instant contact with their perfect network coverage, They have long battery life and are well-integrated with the emergency call center.
Moreover, in case of an accident or a fall, your mobile might fall far away, but a medical alert system with inbuilt fall detection unit will automatically raise an alert and call the helpline for assistance.
IT WON’T WORK WITH A WATER-RELATED ACCIDENT:
Nowadays most of the medical alert systems are water as well as dust-resistant. Hence you don’t have to worry about your loved one’s slipping in the shower and staying there unconscious without any help, since these waterproof devices comes with fall detection technology that raises an alarm the instant they detect change in air pressure and wind movement.
Now that you are aware of these misconceptions about medical alert equipment make sure you make a well-informed decision while purchasing a personal alarm, a fall detection alarm or a GPS Tracking device. You can choose from a wide variety of telecare alarms, careline alarms and lifeline alarms available with SureSafe, which are equipped with the latest technology and are available at an affordable monthly package to ensure safety and security to your family members and loved ones round the clock.
