Rating the Medical Alert Systems

No matter what age, we all strive for and value our independence. For seniors, the ability to remain independent is key to maintaining a sense of self-worth and well-being. One of the biggest obstacles to maintaining independence, however, is the fear of forgetting to take a crucial medication or not being able to call for help in a medical emergency.

Fortunately, there have been technological advancements in medical alert systems that can help solve these problems. Many systems now can be used in the case of a fire or home break-in, and some devices will remind seniors when it's time to take their medication. Mobile medical alert systems with GPS technology also are available for seniors who need protection when away from home.

All these new technologies can be quite confusing. Thankfully, the folks at Reviews.com have done the research and ranking for us. Their team of researchers and industry experts spent more than 100 hours examining and evaluating 44 different medical alert systems. Based on a number of data points, they narrowed that list down to eight standout systems. With these eight, the team conducted a thorough analysis of each, assessing it on 33 different features. The end result is a data-driven, non-biased rating for each of the medical alert systems.
