Over the past decade, more and more seniors are using personal emergency response systems (PERS) as they focus on aging in place and staying independent for as long as possible.
But as seniors get rid of landline phones and travel more, they are looking for new technologies that give them more freedom and peace of mind. There is a growing demand for technology that does not require landlines or base stations that tether users to their homes.
Freeus mPERS help users live independently and stay mobile for longer by offering help with the press of a button, both at home and away.
Say goodbye to landlines with Freeus mPERS
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported that the percentage of seniors aged 65+ without a landline phone at home increased from 10.5% in 2012 to 20.5% in 2016 as seniors opt for cellular phones and voice over IP (VoIP) instead.
Unlike traditional PERS that require landline phone connections and use a base station to offer access to help only in and around the home, Belle and Belle+ enable users to talk with emergency care specialists via built-in two-way voice with the press of a button, anywhere in the US there is AT&T coverage. Care specialists can send emergency personnel or loved ones to users, depending on what is needed.
Belle and Belle+: Designed around user and dealer feedback
mPERS dealers and their customers are looking for a simple device that is small and lightweight, with a long battery life, to offer users fast access to help in an emergency, both at home and away.
As a result, Belle and Belle+ have just one button to press to connect and talk with emergency care specialists anywhere in the US with AT&T coverage. Belle and Belle+ are lightweight and easy to wear, and they are IPX6 water-resistant, though they should not be submerged.
