Medical Alert Systems: About our Research

Medical Alert Systems Research

Many of our members suggested we dig deeply into the category of products called Medical Alert Systems and see if we can shed some light on which ones work best, and for whom. In this research project we did just that.

We evaluated over 50 medical alert systems, and purchased the most promising, then conducted hands-on testing of the products in real-world circumstances. The work is independent, objective and deep.

The results of our research were summarized in the form of reviews and a running diary of our test activities. Then we turned what we learned into a guide to help select the right medical alert system for a given person.

We found that different life circumstances, and different people need different products. We decided there is no such thing as “the best medical alert”. But there is often a handful of “best medical alert systems” for a given person.
