One of the great benefits of using a medical alert system during the COVID-19 pandemic is that it gives older consumers and their families peace of mind if they can’t connect like they normally would.
Now, consumers have another option to choose from if they want to try these devices out. Medical Guardian has announced the release of its latest Personal Emergency Response System (PERS) product, called the Mini Guardian. The company says the device boasts all of the features that users have come to expect in a thinner, more portable package.
“At ½ the width of a traditional wearable system and only weighing as much as a pencil, the MiniGuardian is petite, discreet, and designed for staying on the move -- offering the same lifesaving protection in a small, more powerful device,” the company said.
In addition to features like location tracking, fall detection capabilities, and 4G functionality, the Mini Guardian gives seniors the ability to contact medical professionals or personal caregivers in emergency and non-emergency situations.
Pint sized protection meets major peace of mind
On its website, Medical Guardian explains that seniors can use the device to contact members of their personal Care Circle -- which can be made up of family members, friends, caregivers, and doctors. Providing you and your loved ones with additional peace of mind through around-the-clock connectivity!
