This is a continuation of the best medical alert systems from the following year. We know how daunting and sometimes frustrating it can be to try and narrow down the different options, so we’re trying to aid in that search.
4. GreatCall Splash is most notably known for being one of the cheapest medical alert devices on the market, which is particularly helpful for those that may have limited funds. However, the device also relies on a steady Verizon wireless connection and needs to be charged daily, which could be limiting. It is waterproof and works outside of the home, though.
5. Life Alert is known well due to it’s popular television commercials, however, this product is actually not so worthwhile (however, it’s worth listing due to the popularity of its name). The device offers a lifetime warranty, but despite being known from the commercial where a woman falls and says, “Help! I’ve fallen, and I can’t get up!,” it doesn’t actually have fall detection and only has a 150 foot range. The device also needs to be professionally installed, and they charge an installation fee to do so.
