QMedic is ideal for a customer who doesn’t want a long list of options and add-ons. Users choose from three simple medical alert systems, and there’s an opportunity to customize how calls for help are answered.
- Relatively inexpensive.
- Easy set-up instructions
- Caregivers can follow and monitor behavior.
- Few add-on products and services
- No fall detection service
QMedic two-way communication response system customizes how you want your call for help to be answered, and your answering operator will immediately dispatch medical aid or put you in touch with caregivers and family. The wristband or pendant is waterproof, and the battery never needs charging, which means you can wear your device day and night. Emergency operators are available 24/7.
There’s no fall detection provided with these devices. Instead, detailed tracking allows for viewing and following established patterns — if something seems outside of standard behavior patterns and a wellness call goes unanswered, you can expect to be contacted by the emergency operator.
