Senior Medical Alert Systems with GPS

Almost every single medical alert system company has a medical security plan with GPS tracking abilities somewhere within their products. With the new technological advancements in GPS tracking, adding it to senior medical protection plans seems practical, as it allows seniors to travel wherever they want outside their homes while still being protected. Below are two examples of medical alert company’s GPS plans, and a good model of how they similarly offer the same features as many other kinds of medical alert brands.

Medical Alert GPS Plans

Seniors Bulletin Medical Alert Systems - Lifestation Review

LifeStation Mobile with GPS

LifeStation Mobile with GPS has a whole medical alert system built into one device that can either be worn on your wrist like a watch or around your neck like a necklace.

This device has a speaker with voice capabilities to communicate with a trained, LifeStation specialist. This device also has WiFi positioning location tracking abilities and can connect to any hotspots if needed.

Overall, this plan has a straightforward and easy-to-use device in case of emergencies and should keep all clients using this plan as safe as possible.

Seniors Bulletin Medical Alert Systems - MobileHelp Review

MobileHelp Solo

MobileHelp Solo not only is built for away from home traveling but also has features for in-home use, as well. For example, this plan has no required landline or cellular contract and instead provides you with access to an emergency monitoring service no matter where you are or what time it is.

This plan comes with a waterproof wrist or neck pendant button with GPS tracking and ensures you are in safe hands at all times. This plan also has online tools where clients can see emergency, non-emergency, and system status alerts. Location detection requests can also be seen online, as well. 

Therefore, MobileHelp Solo does offer extra online features unlike LifeStation or some other brands, and is known for almost all of their GPS products.

Final Thoughts

All in all, both GPS plans above have similarities and differences that make them all the more appealing to consumers everywhere. Whether one company has WiFi capabilities and one has better online references, both could be fit for seniors. People have many different lifestyles, even if they all need a similar GPS medical alert plan. What matters most is that those seniors feel secure and protected.
Seniors Bulletin Medical Alert Systems - Bay Alarm Medical Review

Bay Alarm Medical

Bay Alarm Medical is known to be simple, effective, and offer good deals and prices for their products. For example, there are no activation or equipment fees for any of their medical alert packages. Plus, the three main plans that they offer portray all of the aspects that were mentioned above.

In-Home Landline

This plan comes with a base station, a backup battery of up to 32 hours, a waterproof wristband or pendant, and has automatic fall detection capabilities. Wearable two-way communication can also be an added feature to this plan.

In-Home Cellular

All of the aspects mentioned in the In-Home Landline package are also included in this one, but instead of the base station being linked to a landline, it’s linked to a cellular device.

Mobile/GPS

This plan comes with a waterproof wristband or pendant with obvious GPS tracking abilities. The system has a 72-hour backup battery and has automatic fall detection or wearable two-way communication features available, as well.
*Range of up to 1,000 feet for all plans* In general, Bay Alarm Medical has packages that have many included aspects and features that make this brand all the more appealing to its clients. Packages have many options within it, making the plan more personalized to each customer. Seniors who would prefer to make a medical alert plan that’s more personalized to them is something that many of them would prefer if they truly wanted all-around protection.

Medical Alert

Medical Alert is one of the nation’s (U.S.) biggest providers in emergency response systems, plus, there’s no activation or equipment charge for any of their offered plans. All systems below are also waterproof with fall detection capabilities:

Standard System

Comes with a base unit linked to a landline, a 32-hour backup battery, and a pendant or wristband emergency button option.

Cellular Base System

Comes with a base unit linked to a cellular device, a 36-hour backup battery, and a pendant or wristband option, as well.

Mobile/GPS System

Comes with a base unit, (for at-home occasions and can be linked to cellular or landline numbers) a 36-hour backup battery, GPS tracking, and interchangeable pendant and wristband options.
All in all, Medical Alert has many positive things about this company, such as the option to add fall detection to any plan above, but the range for these plans is only about 600 feet, which is much shorter than the products from the other two companies mentioned before. Besides that minor set-back, Medical Alert is an overall great company to choose from.

Nevertheless, the top four rated medical alert companies above are truly very similar to each other when looking at all of their similar aspects. The differences that make these companies unique to each other is how you and other consumers perceive them. Depending on what more people want from a medical alert company is going to be the company that is ranked #1. Medical Guardian has been proven by clients that it’s the best out of any other brand, so those slight differences that make Medical Guardian stand out are going to be the features that people want, and other companies such as Bay Alarm Medical and Medical Alert that rank below it are close, but not quite.
