Components of a Medical Alert System

The Console.
The console or base unit is the heart of the medical alert system. Pushing the emergency button on the console or activating a transmitter causes the console’s digital communicator to send the alarm signal to the central monitoring station via the standard telephone network. Generally the console is place in a central location within the home.

The console allows 2 way voice communication to take place between the user and the care specialist at our 24 hour monitoring station. Using a high tech, ultra sensitive microphone, the console “hears” your calls for help.  The care specialist is actually communicating with the user through this 2 way voice communication and will call the appropriate medical personel, family,friends or primary physician.

Wristband Tranmitter.
The wristband is a battery powered, miniature, water-resistant, transmitter designed for use in emergency situations. Pressing the button on the transmitter sends a digital coded wireless signal to the console.  Each transmitter is factory set to a unique code, so no field coding is required.  Once activated, the two way voice communication begins.  It is recommended that the user test the transmitter in each room of the house and outside the house to assess the range of the medical alert system.

Pendant Transmitter.
Pendant style water-resistant transmitter designed for use in emergency situations, includes breakaway nylon necklace and a visual activation indicator.
