Alert1, On-the-Go Fall Detection: Review

On the Go fall Detection

The Basics

Product name: On-the-Go Fall Detection 

Manufacturer / Distributor: Alert1

Compilation: Q4 2018.


This page contains our Alert1 | On-the-Go Fall Detection review.



Analyst Summary: Alert1 | On-the-Go Fall Detection

This is a go anywhere mobile alert with fall detection. It is a direct competitor for the products we reviewed in our comparative evaluation of mobile medical alerts.

This is a rebranded version of the Belle+ made by wholesaler Freeus. It has a couple of noteworthy features, in addition to those typical for products in this class.

  • it includes both GPS location technology and WiFi location technology, which might make it more accurate in knowing where you are at all times (we have not tested this);
  • it claims a battery life of 5 days, which is definitely longer than most of the competitors.


NOTE: Even though this looks very similar to the Alert1 Kelsi On-the-Go, this product is actually quite different. This product (On-the-Go with Fall Detection) includes both fall detection and GPS location technology, whereas the Alert1 "Kelsi, On-the-Go" does not.

And this product has battery life of only 5 days, whereas the simpler "On-the-Go" has up to 30 days.

Product Line & Company: Alert1

Alert 1 gets favorable reviews on various online review sites, and seems like it makes it to the top 10 or 20 vendors by online "buzz". They have a full range of medical alert systems.

  • A conventional "at-home" system, which also comes with an option fall detection pendant;
  • A small "mobile" pendant;
  • A somewhat larger fall detection, go-anywhere pendant that looks identical to the premium Guardian we tested from Medical Guardian.
