Two of Medical Guardian’s medical alert systems can provide up to 1,300 feet of coverage for easy access to help when you need it.
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 that includes the essential equipment at no extra cost. If you opt into quarterly, semi-annual or annual payment plans, these are bundled with incentives like reduced daily costs and additional accessories.
Medical Guardian Equipment and Features
This unit is the hub of Medical Guardian’s in-home mobile alert systems. It has a help button and two-way communication for talking to the emergency operator, and it also carries the signals from your help button accessories. Connectivity (landline or wireless/cellular) and range depends on the package selected.
Mobile communication device
These are available in the Mobile or Active Guardian packages. With cellular connectivity, help button, two-way communication, GPS tracking and optional fall detection, they can be used at home, on the road or out in public. The higher-tier Active Guardian device also has WiFi location tracking, which is handy for areas like big buildings where GPS signals might not be able to reach.
Wearable help button
Medical Guardian offers neck pendants or wristbands with emergency help buttons. As long as you’re within range of the base station or mobile communication device, you can ask for help with just a tap.
Mobile App & Sensors
With the Family Guardian package, family members and caregivers can track the user’s at-home activity on a mobile app. The in-home sensors detect a user’s movements around the home so family members get activity reports and notifications, monitoring their daily life without intruding.
Freedom Guardian Watch
This smartwatch-meets-medical-alert is a top choice for active seniors. With a built-in mobile phone, it eliminates the need to have a cell phone. Plus, it has a rechargeable two-day battery, is available in black or white, and its interface is designed to be easy to use and senior-friendly.
Fall Alert Pendant
As a medical alert pendant you can easily wear around your neck, the Fall Alert Pendant automatically detects falls and alerts a monitoring specialist. This pendant is water-resistant so that it can be worn even in the shower.
Voice-Activated Wall Button
Medical Guardian’s Voice-Activated Wall Button allows you to request help by saying “Call Medical Guardian” twice or pulling on its cord.
The Medical Guardian Lockbox makes it easy for emergency medical responders or your contacts to access your home by allowing you to store your house key inside. This lockbox has weatherproof qualities, making it durable for outdoor use.
With a 2,000 ft. range, this wall-mounted button can wirelessly connect you with Medical Guardian’s monitoring center. It can be placed in areas of your home where you see most fit.
