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,
Personal emergency response system reviews are incredibly helpful to your medical alert search. There are many companies out there - some great ones and a good number of not so good ones - so it's important to thoroughly research any company you are interested in. While these personal emergency response system reviews do help, the deciding factor should be your gut. What company do you feel you can trust? Who has the best customer service? You should talk to your favorite medical alert companies and go with who you feel will be the most honest, fair, reliable, and caring. Between reading reviews and complaints of companies and actually talking to their representatives you should be able to find an excellent medical alert service for your loved one![Read More...]
