Medical Guardian provides a dependable medical alert system for seniors wishing to live an independent life in their own home, ensuring that help is only the push of a button away.


Overview

The home medical alert system from Medical Guardian comes complete with a base unit and a 100% waterproof help button that can be worn as a pendant or a wristband. The system offers an operating range of 400 feet in diameter. Pushing the help button will put you directly in contact with a live agent, via the base unit, who will be able to assist you by assessing the situation and calling friends, family, neighbors or the appropriate EMS team. Operators stay on the line with you until help arrives or until you no longer need assistance. If you are unable to speak to the operator for any reason, they will automatically send medical assistance directly to your location.


Features

The Medical Guardian Service is portable. If you move or go on vacation, you will be able to take the system with you, plug it in, notify the company and you're ready to go. In today's society many people have gotten rid of their standard phone lines and have gone strictly cellular. This system will work through your cell service if this is the case. You also don't need to worry about a power outage thanks to the battery backup system. The standard system offers a 72 hour backup while the cell system offers 36 hours. The base unit contains an LED display which gives you the date and time, the temperature inside of your home, and a yellow indicator light to remind you monthly to test your system.


Additional Information

The Medical Guardian response center is completely U.S. based. All staff members are 911 certified which means they are qualified to handle emergency medical calls. By providing them with information when you sign up, they will have access to your medical history and will be able to contact friends, family or EMS and provide critical information to emergency personnel. You can also use this system in the case of fires or break-ins allowing you to have more confidence and security while enjoying an independent life. The response center is equipped to handle calls in over 200 different languages.

GREAT AFTER RECOVERING FROM SURGERY

I am recovering from open heart surgery and often have difficulty performing tasks on my own. this lil device has saved me so many times literally. I have been admitted to the hospital on several occasions due to complications with my surgery. The button worked every time. I feel like the representatives and i are getting to know each other well haha.

WOULDN'T TRADE IT FOR ANYTHING!

Thank god I never had to use my Medical guradian alert system, but I would not trade it for anything in the world. I frequently travel to my vacation home in Florida and I can take my alert system everywhere. I feel safer when my family is not around because help is right there with me. Great investment!

ARRIVED QUICKLY & SETUP WAS A BREEZE

I just got this setup after ordering online and having it shipped. Very simple and easy to get up and going, which I was pretty worried about as I'm not good at hooking up electronics. By the time my son arrived to set it up for me it was already up and running. No complaints so far

MEDICAL GUARDIAN

HELP! I'm now a widow and very poor. Social Security has stopped both his payment as well as mine. Terrific. I have to try to get it back. And my refund as well. Please help me.

I was told it was $29.95 per month. OK fine, I can handle that. What they didn't tell me was that they took the WHOLE YEAR OUT AT ONE TIME!! This caused a hardship for several months. I was shocked they would do this, that's a substantial hit on your checking account, and without warning me!! One month later we learned my husband had cancer and had to leave our home. We've been gone for 1 and a half years, So, out of the first year we had one month use for the whole $359.40. And you think that wasn't bad? HA! They did it again...renewed me for a year and withdrew the whole $359.40 out of my checking. NO WARNING> N O QUESTION DO I WANT TO DO THIS? Just took my money. After my husband passed, I went back home to empty the house. aT THIS TIME I CALLED THEM TO SEND IT BACK. I did as told but still haven't gotten a refund

MEDICAL GUARDIAN REVIEW

I ordered one of the Medical Guardian devices today. The ordering process needs improvement. The device won't be delivered for 10 days but the 90 day window starts immediately and they charged my credit card immediately.

The contract didn't apply to the device that we chose. The company refused to revise the contract.

I had the sales people calling me to take my order but when I asked a few questions, they referred me to someone else.
