About the MediPendant™ Personal Alarm Device
Medical Alarm Concepts™ offers a unique, patented, medical emergency alarm system that is different from all other personal emergency response (PERS) systems on the market today. MDHI's MediPendant™ product offers several revolutionary and highly desirable features, including the ability to speak and listen to the operator directly through the pendant, an extended range of mobility from the base station, which enables the user to move virtually anywhere in or around their home, and a call center staffed around the clock with EMT-certified operators. Specifically, the MediPendant™ system enables the device wearer to move up to 600+ feet away from the main base station, a distance that far exceeds competitive offerings on the market today that instead require the user to be within speaking distance of the base station box, a situation that may not be conducive to an emergency if the end user is not near the base station.
Additionally, MediPendant's™ advanced call center technology allows for three-way calling between the operator, the user, and the dispatched first responders and/or a friend and family member. Currently, no other available PERS systems offer the benefit of three-way voice conferencing directly through the pendant. Finally, EMT-certified operators are guaranteed to stay on the line with the MediPendant™ user until the problem is resolved or help arrives.
