4 Reasons Why You Need a GPS Medical Alert System
February 3, 2016
It’s common to be wary of products that boast to be “new” and “improved,” assuming it’s simply a marketing ploy to get you to buy more. But that’s not the case with GPS-enabled medical alert devices. Medical alert systems can mean the difference between life and death, so when an improvement in technology comes along, it can only serve as more of a benefit to you.
Why Should I Consider a GPS Medical Alert System?
A medical alert system with GPS capabilities can add a lot of value to those looking for a great investment in their health. With many people choosing to stay active as they age and the preference for using mobile phones over landlines in the home, there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to medical alert devices.
A mobile alert device with GPS is ideal for people who spend a lot of time outside the house—whether driving around running errands, taking the dog for a walk, or hiking with friends. There are plenty of benefits that you can gain from using a GPS-enabled medical alert system:
1. Location, location, location.
The GPS system allows us to pinpoint your whereabouts should an emergency occur and send help to your exact location. This has come in handy for people in a wide variety of ways—from being able to determine the exact spot in a mall parking lot where Janet fell, to finding Jack on a hiking trail in a relatively remote spot.
Since the GPS medical alert system was designed for people on the go, it’s small in size and easy to bring along with you, wherever you go. It’s small enough to fit in a purse,pocket or discreet carrying case that comes with your device and can be clipped onto your belt.
3. Privacy Matters.
A medical alert system is not a tracking device—we will only check your location in the event of an actual emergency and we will never give out your information to any unauthorized parties.
4. Don’t Worry, Be Happy.
You can sleep a little easier at night knowing that you will be taken care of should an emergency occur—no matter the time or the place.
No matter which reason speaks to you, there’s no denying the importance of medical alert systems for seniors and their loved ones.
