This page contains our LifeCall Mobile Alert review.

 

 

Analyst Summary: LifeCall Mobile Alert

This is a mobile medical alert product. It does not include GPS location technology or fall detection. However it has very long battery life (up to 30 days).

We believe this product comes originally from Freeus (a wholesaler), and is called by them the "Belle". We believe Lifecall rebrands and resells this product.

We included this products predecessor (the Freeus e-Responder) in our comparison of mobile medical alerts. This later version adds Wi-Fi location technology, and so we think it should be better at finding where it is than the e-Responder, but likely less good than products with GPS. However we have not yet done hands-on testing of this product.

The standard system comes from Bosch. Not sure how makes the fall detection system. .........Read more
