LifeFone Fall Protection

LifeFone Fall Protection

LifeFone offers an automatic fall alert detection pendant, which senses when its wearer has fallen and automatically places an emergency call to the call center. Adding this pendant to your package increases your monthly rate by $5 to $10. The company admits that the sensor doesn’t pick up on all falls, and 95% of users experience up to four false alarms per month.
