What Sets Medical Guardian Apart?

What Sets Medical Guardian Apart?

The basic idea behind medical alert systems doesn’t change much: The user has an in-home unit or portable help button that instantly connects them with a professional monitoring center, which in turn sends emergency help as necessary. Where Medical Guardian breaks away from the pack is its wide variety of device options, the quality of its user support, its expanded coverage area and its reputation amongst medical professionals and users alike.

Medical Guardian also has a flexible pricing structure. There’s no long-term contract required. Instead, you can get a month-to-month subscription with the essential equipment. Add-on features and devices are also available. If you opt into quarterly, semi-annual or annual payment plans, these are bundled with incentives like reduced daily costs and additional accessories.

Pros

  • Multiple options based on customer lifestyles
  • Landline and cellular monitoring options
  • Flexible payment plans

Cons

  • No trial period
  • Additional cost for fall detection
