The Libris from LiveWell is my top-rated mobile medical alarm with fall detection.
It’s pretty extraordinary, actually.
For the same price as you’d pay for a fall detection medical alarm from Philips or Medical Guardian, you get the power and convenience of a mobile medical alert, too.
And you’re not stuck with only being protected inside your own home.
How it works:
The Libris is a small, self-contained unit that has just one button on it. If you have an emergency, you press the button to connect to the monitoring center in just a few seconds.
Additionally, the automatic fall detection sensors inside the unit are constantly detecting movement. There are three different sensors, and they send data in real time to powerful cloud computers that analyze the current movements of the pendant and compare them to past movements. This way it can detect a change in pattern that could signal a fall.
If there is an automatic alert, you’ll get contacted through the pendant by the monitoring center. If it was a false alarm, all you have to do is say so. If you’re not able to respond, help will be sent immediately to your location.
Location services from GPS and cell towers:
The Libris AutoAlert features not only GPS location services but also the location assistance from cell towers, so the emergency monitors have two separate ways to determine your exact location. This is critical with an auto alert feature because if you fall but can’t activate your button yourself, you’re probably not going to be able to give your location.
Charging the unit:
The Libris comes with a small dock used for charging. It needs to be charged about every 36 hours, which means you can charge it each night without it failing if you forget one night. Just remember to grab it on your way out of bed if you need to make a trip to the bathroom in the middle of the night.
Why I’m such a fan:
I think this unit addresses almost everything a person could want in a medical alarm. It’s not ugly. It’s simple to use. It’s waterproof. It’s sold by a company with great customer service and billing policies.
You can buy it and try it with basically no risk.
