How to Choose a Medical Alert System

Enjoy living carefree in your own home.

Changes can take place that make it more challenging to stay independent at your own house. Leaving the comfort and safety of your own home is often not desirable, but there is another option: wearing a medical alert button. With medical alert services you are provided with the care and safety you deserve. A soothing feeling, day and night. You too have the right to live safely and independently in your place of your choosing.

‘If you don't need the help, you will enjoy the freedom of living by yourself. If there is a time when you do need help, you will receive the care and attention you need'.

What are Medical alert systems?

Your own home. A wonderful place to live together or independently. To ensure your safety, there are medical alert systems, which can call in family or help services for you when needed. If the help is not needed, you can enjoy your freedom of living by yourself. If there is a time when you do need help, you will get the care and attention you need.

Medical alert systems are services where you get a necklace or bracelet with a button attached. When you find yourself in a situation where you can’t call for help yourself, you can use the button to connect with family or expert help/Professional help?. So you can enjoy living safely at home without any worries.

How does it work?

A medical alert system works with a bracelet or necklace. The bracelet or necklace is paired with a telephone at home or mobile phone. When you press the button, you immediately connect, via a microphone to the medical alert call center that will help you with what you need. The alert center ensures that someone will visit you promptly when necessary. This can be a family member or expert help, depending on what you need. If for any reason, you are unable to speak when you connect to the alert center, an emergency service will always be sent to you. This ensures that you always get the care that you need at any time in the event that you have an emergency.

A medical alert service is not only available during the day. You can reach the alert center every day of the week and every hour of the day when you need it.

Emergency services and family

In addition to expert help, you can also be connected with family, friends, acquaintances or neighbours if you would prefer that to professional help. The phone numbers of your loved ones and neighbors are then linked to your bracelet or necklace. You can arrange who will be called at what time of the day. When you press the button, that person will be the first to be called. If your loved one or acquaintance is unable to answer your call, you will always be connected to the medical (emergency) services to ensure that you get your care when needed.

For anyone who enjoys living carefree in his or her own home

Bracelet or necklace

The emergency contact button is made into a necklace or bracelet. The necklace or bracelet has an easy and convenient push button. In places such as your bed, but also in the kitchen or bathroom, buttons can also be attached to the wall. All buttons are connected to each other and work in the same way. When you press the button, you are connected to the central unit.

Your necklace or bracelet can also be connected to your smoke- or gas detector and your security alarm system.

The bracelets and necklaces are waterproof. So you can wear your bracelet or necklace in the shower without risk.


When your bracelet or necklace is connected to a landline phone, you often have a wide range. You are not only connected in the house, but also in the garden or even with your neighbours. If you would like to have a larger range, you can have your bracelet or necklace connected to a mobile phone. Then, wherever you go, you are always a push of a button away from emergency services or contacting family members when necessary.
