An Ounce of Prevention is Better Than a Pound of Cure

A few years ago, the mother of my friend who lives in the US passed away due to a stroke. She was 64. It happened in the middle of the night when she went to relieve herself. Everyone was in bed already and my friend works night shift so she was not home when it happened. Nobody knew about it until the next morning. This is the kind of an unfortunate event that could have been prevented if only they had Medical Alert.

If you're wondering what I mean by Medical Alert, it is a device specially made for people over the age of fifty. They recently launched two new products: Tele-Assist and Mobile GPS. Tele-Assist is to be used at home, it has a fall alert detector that alerts an emergency personnel that they had an accident, had fallen and can't even push a button. It tracks the body movement and the device calls for help if something has happened and the person can't move. Even intruders are detected. It automatically alerts the police if intruders were detected. Tele-Assist also features live personnel reminders. A live person will remind them of doctors appointments, events and will give them personal assistance.

The Mobile GPS is a tracking bracelet with 2-way speakerphone. It can be used like a cellphone to call for help. If the wearer wanders outside the specified zone, you or the emergency call center will immediately recieve an alert. You can rest assured that your loved one will get help immediately in case of emergency.

Unfortunate events happen, an ounce of prevention is always better than a pound of cure. With Medical Alert, the life you save may be your own.
