The Basics

Product name: Medical Alert System 

Manufacturer / Distributor: LifeGuardian

Compilation: Q4 2015


This page contains our LifeGuardian | Medical Alert System review.



Analyst Summary: LifeGuardian | Medical Alert System

While it is a little hard to tell from the company's website exactly how the product has been designed, as best we can tell it is a typical example of an at-home medical alert system.

It appears to connect to the response center via landline phone, and to have a waterproof pendant. The voice interaction between responder and older adult comes through the base station.

There is an optional auto-detect falls button.

This product appears to be the same as that offered by Connect America. We suspect one company makes both products. Not sure yet which one.

So the company had been in business for some time. .........Read more
