    Bottom Line

    QMedic is ideal for health care workers who want reliable systems for their clients. Users choose from in-home and mobile systems with optional fall detection and GPS capabilities, and there’s an opportunity to customize how calls for help are answered.

    How do QMedic systems work?

    When the user uses a QMedic system to send a request for help, their call is answered in about 30 seconds. If the user calls but cannot communicate, the response center automatically dispatches emergency services and connects the user with a predetermined contact (typically a caregiver, friend or family member).

    QMedic offers a variety of services, including two types of medical alerts and caregiver resources:

    • QMedic in-home systems: The QMedic cellular medical alert system works wirelessly, making it ideal for those without a landline. The system provides two-way communication with operators through a base station and speaker, as well as an emergency button worn on the wrist or around the neck.
    • QMedic mobile systems: QMedic’s Mobile GPS medical alert system is ideal for people who spend a lot of time outside their homes. This water-resistant and rain-safe device is worn around the neck on a pendant. The GPS tracking technology monitors where you are and sends help when you press the button.
    • Caregivers support and resources: The caregiver dashboard lets family members and loved ones monitor a user’s activity, including sleeping and activity habits.

    QMedic packages and pricing

    QMedic in-home systems start at $300 per year; mobile systems start at $400 per year. You lease the equipment, so there are no upfront equipment costs, but you have to return everything in working condition when you cancel or after your contract expires.
