Trelawear has a line of jewelry that functions as a medical alert. The idea is to create a medical alert pendant that looks attractive, and not like a medical alert at all.

The way this device works is as follows.

  • You wear the pendant, and you need to have your smartphone within range as well for the medical alert to work.
  • When you need help you press a button on the back of the pendant.
  • The pendant communicates via Bluetooth to your smartphone, on which is an App provided by FallCall Solutions, which is a partner of Trelawear. The FallCall app calls the monitoring service, and the responder talks to you via your smartphone.

We have evaluated the FallCall App, both as a stand alone app on the phone, and on an Apple Watch, and it performed well in our evaluations (see Smartwatch as Medical Alert for example).

Trelawear basically offers a stylish "pendant" that doubles as the medical alert "button" — and eliminates the need to worry about getting the smartphone out of a purse, opening the smartphone, finding the right app, opening it, and pressing the button in the App.

The Longevity Explorers have not yet tried out this product but definitely like the idea of a medical alert that actually looks attractive.

Our Story:

Inspiration for Trellawear


Trelawear began as a passion project aimed at solving an issue that hit close to home.   Mara Perlmutter, Founder of Trelawear, set out to address her mom's question when she refused to wear a generic PERS device, "Mara you have been in the jewelry business over 25 years, can't you make me something beautiful to wear in case of an emergency?"  As a seasoned fashion and jewelry executive, Mara knew she had the expertise to make this happen. 

Mara has spent the past three years crafting a product she would be proud to share with her family and friends.  To honor her family members that inspired Trelawear, the cushion-shaped pendant is named Sally, after Mara’s mother; and the round-shaped pendant named Bella, after Mara's favorite aunt.

Discussion and Reviews

This is a very attractive product. Potential users might look at InvisaWear to see if it meets their needs. It is attractive too. Retails for about $150. Relies on connection to a smartphone instead of base station. No monthly fee.



from mara perlmutter (member) at April 13, 2020

Thank you Tampa.  InvisaWear is a very attractive product as well, though geared to a younger college aged target audience.

Trelawear was designed to cater to baby boomers plus.  We will be launching a bluetooth version in a few months with an app for activation/monitoring with a very low monthly monitoring cost.

We feel our target audience wants the comfort of a trained representative helping them in any emergency, who also knows who they are, where they are & their emergency contacts.

Tech-enhanced Life Resource Database

This is one of hundreds of products and resources in the Tech-enhanced Life database of "useful products and resources".

The theme of this collection of resources is "tools we can use to help improve our quality of life as we grow older".

We have no vested interest in any of these products or services, but we have collected descriptions of them, and organized them according to various themes relating to the challenges of aging — so older adults and their families can find useful products they do not yet know about. 

Members of Tech-enhanced Life can search by categories, add reviews of the products, and see links to the manufacturer's websites where they can buy the product or access the resource.

The criteria for adding products and resources to this database is that we think they "look useful, noteworthy, and interesting", and have the potential to improve life for older adults and their families. We have evaluated some of these products, in which case you will see links to a detailed review and or to explorer discussions about the product on this page, or inputs from explorers in the comments.

If the listing does not include reviews or explorer discussions, then we have not evaluated it sufficiently to be able to recommend it or comment on how well it works. If you research this product or resource further, and especially if you try it out, please come back to this page and add your comments.
