Question: Hi, I have a friend that is paralyzed. He can do a lot for himself but, he has problems when it comes to getting himself in bed at night. He gets stuck sometimes between his chair and his bed. He lives with his sister and she can not hear him at night if he needs help. He has a medic alert type device that hooks into his phone line, it has a remote. The problem is that in some cases he cant reach the remote. Is there a voice activated system we could use to get around this problem? This has been a regular occurence for a number of years.

I don’t know of any voice activated systems.
Is he wearing the pendant transmitter to activate the medical alarm? They should be wearing it on their wrist or around their neck…we find the neck to be the best to wear so that both hands can reach it if in an awkward position.
When he is in trouble, why is it that he can’t reach the remote?
I understand the frustration of his problem…I have dealt with many people with these type issues. Usually we can resolve it by wearing the transmitter help button properly. I find lots of people put the remote on their walker or bed post, then get up in the middle of the night and fall away from where the help button is.
Let me know if I can be of further help,
