MobileHelp invented, and now sells, a unique personal emergency response system that combines the traditioanl in-home system with a small mobile device that allows the user to summon emergency help 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, nationwide, by simply pressing your own Personal Help Button.
Better than a cell phone (which some municipalities recommend not using for 911 calls) you do not need to turn our mobile device on, you simply press a button. If you can't talk, unlike a cell phone call: we know where your are, who you are, your prior medical condition, any drug alergies, and we keep a list of up to 4 contacts that we will notify in case of an emergency.
When you push the button on our mobile device, or our pendant, or our base station, our operators respond. They can see where you are (which is very helpful if you are traveling or if you are in an unfamiliar area). If you are unable answer, the operators immediately call the nearest 911 dispatcher using GPS coordinates whether you are in your home,or anywhere outside your home in the United States. The operators maintain contact with the 911 EMS responders until they are by your side, and they also call your personal contacts.
