Connect America Medical Alert Systems
Connect America sells a variety of personal emergency response systems and medical alert devices, giving you protection inside and outside of the home. Its systems include:
At-Home Landline System
A medical alert device that works through your landline and comes with an integrated two-way speaker and a separate wearable pendant. The latter contains a help button to ensure you get assistance when you need it.
The pendant is waterproof, lightweight, and can be worn on your neck or wrist. The base unit works through a power source, but it also has a backup battery just in case there is a blackout or temporary power outage.
At-Home Cellular System
The Home Cellular system offers many of the same features and benefits as the landline option above, but it utilizes cellular technology and doesn't need to be connected through a landline. It also comes with a two-way speaker and a waterproof pendant and while it works through a cellular connection, you don't need a separate cellular contract.
On the Go Mobile System
An advanced GPS locator and cellular technology creates a mobile alert device that works outside of your home and provides you with cover wherever you go. You can purchase automatic fall detection for additional coverage and while the unit relies on battery power, it offers up to 5 days on a single charge and takes just a few hours to recharge.
Connect America also offers a Mobile LTE system, which connects through 4G.
Fall Detection Pendant
The company’s automatic fall detection pendant can be added to any of the aforementioned packages. It uses accelerometers to detect when the wearer has fallen and it sends a warning/SOS to the monitoring center, family and friends, or emergency responders.
It's not just about falls, either. These pendants provide assistance in the event of a cardiac episode and are essential for anyone who is prone to suffering from such issues.
Other Connect America Products
In addition to the 24/7 monitoring centers, fall detection devices, and other medical alert essentials, Connect America offers a variety of other products and services.
For instance, the medication reminder MedAlert uses cellular connectivity to dispense medication compartments at the right time while also sending notifications through text and email. It has a tamper-proof lock and customizable reminders, making it essential for caregivers and patients alike, especially those that suffer from memory impairment.
Remote patient monitoring services are also provided, thus combining a series of apps and products to keep patients safe inside and outside of their homes.
