Medical Guardian Review

Medical Guardian has been a leading provider of medical alert devices for years. They have fair pricing and are forthright with their information. We like the fact that they have stylish equipment options with all of the latest no phone line (cellular), GPS, and fall detection options.

Their latest offering is called the Freedom Guardian (released at CES 2018), which is a cellular-based smart watch medical alert device with an emergency SOS button for help while on the go.

Other Medical Alert Systems

 

GreatCall Logo

GreatCall Medical Alert Devices

GreatCall Review

GreatCall is a medical alert provider that ties most of their services in with smart phone use, and even provides Jitterbug phones and call plans. This is a pretty modern option compared with other medical alert services which mainly focus on stand alone equipment reserved only for medical alert use.

In December of 2015, GreatCall acquired Lively which is a connected health platform that does have more traditional stand alone medical alert devices but with advanced features and a modern look, for active seniors who are looking for protection.

American Senior Safety Advanced Medical Device

American Senior Safety Review

American Senior Safety has a well-rounded service package and lots of medical alert monitoring options with a more personable sales approach. We do prefer companies that monitor their own accounts in their own TMA (CSAA) 5-Diamond central stations. This provides potentially better quality control with less parties involved.

Life Alert � Watch Pendant

Life Alert Review

Life Alert is most well known for their TV commercials showing a senior saying "Help, I've fallen and I can't get up."  They are industry leaders and have been in business since 1987.  When most people think of Life Alert systems, this is the company that comes to mind.

ADT Medical Alert

ADT Medical Alert Review

Formally known as ADT Companion Service. ADT is the largest security company in the world. That's not to say that bigger is always better. They have a one time activation fee that is typically waived and the ADT FOREVERate, so your cost per month will never change.

Walgreens Ready Response System

Walgreens Ready Response Review

Walgreens Ready Response offers traditional medical alert systems, cellular based systems, GPS options, and fall detection all with a modern look and feel. Their services are actually provided by Tunstall Americas (a third party) and not directly by Walgreens.

VRI Medical Alert Base Station

VRI Review

VRI Cares have been in the medical alert system business since 1989. VRI provides emergency response, fall detection, medication management and vitals monitoring for over 150,000 clients in all 50 states. While their website and call center is lacking information, their product offerings and no long-term contracts are appealing.

CVS Medical Alert System

CVS Medical Alert Review

The CVS/pharmacy medical alert program is handled by Connect America, who has been providing medical alert monitoring services since 1977. Since CVS is primarily a reseller of the Connect America service, you may also want to consider dealing directly with Connect America, since their website has the most updated service offerings that are also available to CVS customers.

Medguard Alert Lifewatch USA Medical Alert System

MedGuard Alert - Lifewatch USA Review

LifeWatch USA has been in the medical alert device business since 1996. Recently, they appear to have re-branded as MedGuard Alert, Inc. The only thing active with the LifeWatch USA name is their website domain name. The MedGuard Alert brand also has a website with the same information.

medipendant button

MediPendant Review

MediPendant is a unique two-way voice speakerphone pendant which the company claims is the first of it's kind. You can speak and listen directly through the pendant itself. This differs from traditional medical alert devices which utilize the base unit as the speaker and microphone.

Alarmcare Medical Alert

Alarmcare by Alarmforce Review

In business since 1988, Alarmforce's Alarmcare medical alert service provides your basic medical alert service needs, including fall detection, at a reasonable monthly fee. Since their services are based in Toronto Canada, we do not feel that they should be a top choice for U.S. based customers due to their limited US service area.
