And with over 600 feet of effective communication range, the Medical Alert System provides significantly enhanced security in the home and surrounding areas.
Greer, SC (PRWEB) February 09, 2012
MedFirst Alert, a leading marketer of personal emergency response systems (PERS), has announced the launch of a unique product which allows full two-way communication with emergency personnel, and in a wider coverage area.
"Our new Medical Alert System is the first monitored medical alert device that allows you to speak and listen directly through the pendant itself," says John Nunnally, chief executive officer of MedFirst Alert. "This allows on the spot voice communication with emergency personnel—unlike traditional medical alert devices."
"And with over 600 feet of effective communication range, the Medical Alert System provides significantly enhanced security in the home and surrounding areas," adds Nunnally.
Its website notes that the device's two-way communication ability means there is no need to be physically near a base console to talk with an operator. Also noted is that the device is water resistant and may be worn in the bath or shower, that service is provided in both English and Spanish, and that all MedFirst Alert call center staff are Emergency Response certified.
As reported in a study conducted by the National Council on Disability, 80 percent of the elderly persons who used assistive technology were able to reduce their dependence on others. In addition, half of those surveyed reduced their dependence on paid helpers, and half were able to avoid entering nursing homes.
"This state of the art product brings a new level of comfort and peace of mind to anyone living alone or concerned about having an accident or emergency at home," says Nunnally.
