HOW TO USE A MEDICAL ALERT BRACELET

 

Medical alert bracelets are a must when it comes to keeping seniors safe, confident, and independent. Therefore, understanding how to use these products is important. Holding all of the necessary medical information, these devices make it is easy for emergency personnel to treat seniors who require immediate assistance. You should understand how to wear a medical alert bracelet and use its available features. These features include two-way communication, which provides quicker and more customized help. When using this device, you should also call for help during a medical emergency and contact customer service with any questions about your product.

 

WEAR THE MEDICAL ALERT BRACELET OR PENDANT PROPERLY

When you first receive your medical alert bracelet, make sure it is comfortable and get used to wearing it. These products are water resistant, so there is no need to remove it in the bath or when swimming.

 

If you are not comfortable wearing a bracelet, you can choose a medical alert pendant instead, which offers the same features. Breakaway cords make it easy to remove the pendant if necessary. There are several options available when purchasing these devices. Choose the one that works best for you.

 

USE THE TWO-WAY COMMUNICATION FEATURE

New technology has allowed some medical alert systems to feature two-way communication. By using this feature, you can speak with a person at the other end of the line during an emergency. This communication could provide quicker and more customized help when you need it most.

 

CALL FOR HELP DURING A MEDICAL EMERGENCY

When an emergency occurs, simply press the button on your medical alert bracelet for help. Your bracelet is already connected to a call center that will dispatch emergency assistance when you require it. You can also set up a phone call to a family or a close friend if an emergency occurs. This extra security provides essential communication with your loved ones if you need to go to the hospital or receive care medical immediately.

 

CONTACT CUSTOMER SERVICE WITH ANY QUESTIONS ABOUT YOUR MEDICAL ALERT BRACELET OR PENDANT

If you need help setting up your bracelet or pendant or have questions about how it works, you can call customer service to get assistance. Understanding how the medical alert bracelet works, how to charge it, and how to call for help will prepare you for possible emergencies.
