Simple to Use Medical Alert Systems

Have you ever heard the expression “Keep it simple stupid” (KISS). These 4 simple words are often overlooked and underutilized when it comes to new products and services entering the marketplace. One such example are medical alert systems.  Many times the manufacturers of these systems try to add to many features and gadgets to try and out do their competitors.  What they don’t realize is that by adding these “extra” features they make the product less usable.

One such example in the medical alert system industry can be found in systems that require the user, oftentimes a senior over the age of 65 to recharge the mobile alert pendant or remote every night.   The more steps involved in practical application, the less likely someone is to consistently use the product.

At MedFirst Alert we keep our medical alert systems simple to use on purpose for one reason.  We want those who use it to use it everyday without exception.  What good is have the medical alert if you are not going to use it? We recommend either a simple wristband or a necklace that is worn around the neck. Whether you are in the shower or out back working in your garden, it needs to be worn at all times to be effective.  The system itself requires no maintenance on the part of the user. It has a built in diagnostic feature that is able to check itself to ensure proper function.  From the time a senior or someone with a disability opens the box and plugs it in, it is ready to use. Keeping it simple is our goal and our seniors appreciate the fact that we have kept it simple to use. So, when looking for a medical alert system, remember simple is better.
