Cell phones vs. Medical Alert Service | Philips Lifeline ®

Imagine a device you wear around the clock. When you need to make a call, it works, and immediately connects you to a helpful, knowledgeable person.

The device you’re imagining is a Philips Lifeline Personal Help Button supported by our Medical Alert Service. If you choose Lifeline with AutoAlert, in the event of a fall, you don’t even need to press a button to get help.* Can your cell phone do that? Cell phones are convenient, but they can’t give you the service you need.

With personal care, purpose-built technology, and unmatched reliability, you can expect more from Philips Lifeline Medical Alert Service:
