QMedic Equipment and Features

  • Base Station

    This hub is included in the in-home equipment package, and it includes a two-way talk speaker that can be routed to QMedic’s 24/7 call center or to a caregiver. It has a 1000-foot radius for large homes and backyards.

  • Wrist Band or Pendant

    The wrist band or pendant is the choice of wearable help buttons that comes with QMedic, and both are designed to be worn for up to two years without having to be removed. There’s no charging required, and the build is 100% waterproof so they can even be used in a bathtub.

  • Mobile GPS Medical Alert System

    The mobile GPS device combines the elements of the in-home package into one unit that can be taken outside the home. While there’s no wristband option and the device is only water-resistant (not waterproof), you get the benefit of GPS tracking and two-way talk anywhere, with no smartphone configuration required. 

QMedic Fall Protection

Automatic fall detection is a feature that detects any fall and automatically calls the monitoring center or caregiver. QMedic doesn’t offer a system with this feature, citing false alarms as its reason. In the event of a fall, the senior has to press the help button to place an emergency call on his or her own behalf. By tracking wear compliance, sleep patterns and activity data, QMedic’s system attempts to prevent unnecessary emergency calls with proactive, preventative alerts.
