How is the Wellcore System different from other emergency systems?
The Wellcore system offers the most advanced technology for personal emergency response systems. Old fashioned PERS solutions required that the user press the button if they fall in order to get help. Wellcore provides automatic fall detection so users don’t have to press a button if they fall. Wellcore knows the difference between normal daily activity and potentially dangerous falls. If you do fall, you don’t need to struggle to press the button to call for help—a Wellcore emergency specialist calls you, notifies your responders, and sends help as needed. Alternately, you can always press the help button if you need assistance. Additionally, with other devices, there is no way to tell if the user is wearing it. There are many users who choose not to wear the device on an everyday basis. However, with Wellcore’s technology, we know if users are wearing the activity monitor. And, if the user is not wearing it, Wellcore reminds them to wear it and if necessary caregivers are notified.
