Thank you for your extremely helpful coverage of medical alert systems. I am unable to clarify from your information or other information available online whether fall detection systems automatically call monitoring companies or personal contacts when a fall is detected. It seems that unless no movement is detected after 60 seconds, the device does not initiate a call for help. My elderly brother-in-law just had a fall in his driveway. He briefly lost consciousness but actively tried to stand up. No emergency call was made and if this is the industry standard, there's no point in my switching companies. Any help you can provide me would be greatly appreciated. Thank you so much.
