Lifeline with AutoAlert detects over 95% of falls and can automatically call for help when a fall is detected.
For those the would like the same peace of mind away from home one can consider the GoSafe System that detects falls plus it allows you to speak with a Lifeline Response Associate that can “see” your location via GPS.
