How Does a Fall Alarm for Elderly Work?

Imagine this scenario: your loved one, a cherished senior in your life, is at home alone. Suddenly, they experience a fall, and no one is around to help. It's a situation that can send shivers down anyone's spine. This is where fall alarms for the elderly come into play, and Smart Med Alert is here to shed light on how these devices work to ensure the safety and well-being of our seniors.

Understanding the Basics

Fall alarms, also known as medical alert systems, are a lifeline for seniors. They provide an extra layer of security and peace of mind for both the elderly and their families. These devices are designed to summon help in case of a fall or other emergencies, ensuring prompt assistance when it's needed the most.

How Does a Fall Alarm Work?

Now, let's dive into the mechanics of how a fall alarm operates. When a fall or emergency occurs, pressing the device's button activates a signal to our monitoring center. This signal can be transmitted via cellular networks or a landline, depending on the device type.

Our highly trained operators receive the signal and promptly assess the situation. They will communicate with the individual through the device's built-in speaker and microphone to determine the severity of the situation. If needed, they will contact emergency services and the individual's designated contacts, providing crucial information to ensure a swift and effective response.
