How Do LifeCall Medical Alert Bracelets Work?

LifeCall medical alert bracelets are part of the LifeCall medical alarm system that can connect customers to LifeCall’s monitoring centre when help is required. LifeCall medical alarm bracelets are easy to use and wear and help customers live at home with peace of mind. By simply wearing the bracelet, (or the medical alert necklace) you have access to emergency aid 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The bracelet is a wireless personal help button (pendant). By pushing on the button you are put through to 2-way communication with a LifeCall emergency response operator who will talk with you to quickly assess your situation and call for help on your behalf. If you are unable to respond they will immediately send help.
