That’s because it’s unlikely that you have your smartphone with you all the time, says Mindy Renfro, Ph.D., D.P.T., an associate professor in the school of physical therapy at Touro University Nevada in Henderson. It’s easy to get up from a chair and leave it there. “If you don’t have an emergency response system on your body that is going to stay on your body, you’re at risk,” she says.
These operate over cellular networks and incorporate GPS technology. This way, if you get lost or press the call button for help but are unable to talk, the monitoring service can find you.
GreatCall offers three different tiers of mobile medical alert service: Basic, Preferred and Ultimate. Included in Preferred is Urgent Care which allows you to Speak to a live nurse or board-certified doctor, 24/7 without an appointment. You can also get a prescription for common medications over the phone. GreatCall Link app helps caregivers stay informed about the health and safety of family members with GreatCall products. Ultimate includes everything from Preferred and Basic plans plus automatic Fall Detection which detects falls and calls a 5Star agent immediately plus free product replacement in case the device is ever lost, broken or stolen.
Belle+ — The other cellular option from ResponseNow is slightly different from the original Belle. The Belle+ is also GPS enabled (device tracking) and has built-in fall detection. The only downside is the limited battery life (5-days) due to the additional features.
FastHelp’s main selling point is that it doesn’t charge a monthly plan. Instead, it only charges you for the device itself. Typically, the cost is $299, but from time to time, you can find some discounts on the website and get it for half the price. We do feel, for what FastHelp does, the price is a little high. If we consider the competitors that offer a monthly fee and a more complete service, $299 will be more than enough to pay for one year. Even when compared to companies with the same pricing model as FastHelp, you’ll be able to get more comprehensive devices for a lower price.
FastHelp provides a mobile device that doesn’t need a base station and works with a cellular network. So you don’t need to have a landline or internet connection.
