There are a number of Mobile Personal Emergency Response System (MPERS) on the market today, but many of them are not water resistant. The most recent study conducted by the Centers for Disease Control found that two-thirds of all accidental injuries in the United States occurred in the tub or shower. Seniors and caregivers shouldn't have to worry about water limiting the ability to bring their MPERS with them.
The new Verizon SureResponse™ Mobile Personal Emergency Response System (MPERS) helps provide security and convenience. With a simple touch of a button, it places a call to a SureResponse Care Agent.
Worn as pendant around the neck, on the wrist like a watch, or clipped to a belt so it won’t get in the way of activities, the SureResponse features a call button to contact emergency personnel or family members without looking up contacts or reading a screen. Pressing the call button connects the wearer to a SureResponse Care Agent who is available 24 hours a day (with support in English or Spanish) and can direct their call to the right person for help.
If the wearer is away from home, SureResponse uses GPS to provide location services to agents and emergency response units easing concerns. It also offers the ability to store personal information online that can be used in emergency situations.
