Get help even if you fall and are unable to push your button
Every year, more than 1.4 million people age 65 and older suffer from falling accidents. You can become disoriented, or become immobilized or knocked unconscious, and unable to call for help. We responded to this need with the new Philips Lifeline with AutoAlert option. Just like with our Standard Lifeline Medical Alert Service, you can push the pendant-style button for help at any time. For an added layer of protection, the Lifeline with AutoAlert is the first pendant-style help button that can automatically place a call for help if it detects a fall and you're unable to push the button yourself.
Consider the AutoAlert benefits:
- Access to help if you can't push your button
- Increased peace of mind and confidence
- Wear it in the shower, where falls often occur, as it's waterproof.
- Use it to call for help from anywhere in or around your home.
Caution: Choosing your help button
It is important that you and your caregiver choose the Personal Help Button most suitable for you. Please consider the following:
Pendant Styles The Classic, Slimline and AutoAlert Pendants are worn around the neck; this helps make the button accessible by either of your hands.
The Classic, Slimline and AutoAlert Pendants are worn around the neck; this helps make the button accessible by either of your hands.
Caution: To reduce any risk of strangulation, Philips Lifeline neck cords are designed to break apart under certain conditions. However, any cord worn around the neck can pose a strangulation risk, including the possibility of death and serious injuries. This may be of more concern to wearers in wheelchairs, using walkers, using beds with guard rails, or who might encounter other protruding objects upon which the cord can become tangled. Wearers for whom this is a concern may wish to consider the Wristband style button.
The Slimline Wristband is worn around your wrist. Caution: In circumstances where the user's arm that is not wearing the Wristband becomes immobilized (examples: due to stroke or arm being trapped under a heavy object), this can present a risk that the user will be unable to press the button.
Note: Range may vary due to construction of your home and distance from the Lifeline Telephone or Basic Unit.
Please consult your caregiver or Lifeline Program on which Help Button style is most appropriate for you.
The AutoAlert Pendant is only available on a neck cord. Wearers for whom this is a concern may wish to consider the standard Lifeline Service with the Wrist style button.
