Alarm and Pendant

Who is it for?

Our lifeline alarm and pendant system is for anyone that needs extra support and peace of mind so that they can enjoy their independence, and live in their own home, knowing that help is at hand with a press of a button.

How does it work?

If you need help, simply press the button, and through the paired base unit, a call is placed immediately to our experienced, locally based, call centre that operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

What happens next?

The trained, dedicated operators will then assess the situation and they will either; contact one of your emergency key holders to check on you or call the emergency services if you need immediate medical attention and let your loved ones know.

Fall Detector

Who is it for?

Our Vibby Fall Detector can give confidence to anyone who is at risk of falling and needs extra support and peace of mind to remain in their own home.

How does it work?

The Vibby is designed to automatically detect a serious hard fall and raise an alert to our 24-hour call centre. You can also manually raise an alert by pressing the button on the face of the Vibby. Confirmation that an alert has been raised will be given by an LED light and vibration.

Once activated, the call centre will go through the same process as detailed above for the alarm and pendant system. To cancel an alarm, you must either stand up or cover the Vibby completely with your hand during the 20 second period after a fall is detected. The Vibby will stop vibrating to confirm the alert has been deactivated.

Pager Linked Equipment

Using the supplied safety pin or velcro attachment, the switch is securely fastened to the user’s pillow or wheelchair arm rest and is activated with the lightest of touches using the cheek, head or arm. When activated, an alarm is sent to the pager with tone or vibrate alert. The switch features a smooth and soft foam surface (washable), which is comfortable to operate by the user and includes a protective cover that is removable for washing.

Door Sensor and Pager
