Analyst Summary: Bay Alarm Medical | Mobile GPS Medical Alert

This product is a go-anywhere type alert, using a cellular connection directly from the "wearable" to communicate with the monitoring service. In this case the "wearable" is larger than the more traditional home-type medical alert pendant, and is not waterproof. There is no home base station and so this is really meant for when you are out and about, rather than when you are at home. It comes with a fall detection capability as an optional extra.

Product Line & Company: Bay Alarm Medical

Bay Alarm Medical makes an "at-home medical alert" and a "go anywhere" medical alert. The company seems well regarded in reviews on the Internet, and these products often score well in on-line review sites of medical alert products.

The company has a solid reputation as a home security company (ie burglar alarms etc).

Like many medical alert providers, the company outsources the actual "monitoring response service" to a company that specializes in that service. In the case of Bay Alarm Medical, they use a well respected monitoring responder company, also used by many other medical alert providers, called AvantGuard.
