Medical Alert - Reviewed & Compared

The hallmark of an excellent medical alert company is not only the price and features, but how well the devices and services match up with your loved one’s needs. Medical Alert meets these head-on with technologically advanced simplicity, and excellent UL-listed monitoring. Add in a great price, free equipment, and no long-term contracts, and you have a winner.

What Medical Alert Does Best

I’ll say it right up front – their devices are simple to use, which is excellent if your loved one is technologically challenged. There are some medical alert companies that have some excellent but complicated technology, complete with menu-laden base stations and full-feature smartwatches. But the first thing I noticed about Medical Alert is how easy their devices were – essentially consisting of a pushbutton (even their “watch” is a button). Can your loved one push a button? Then they’re covered.
