An advanced GPS locator so that you can quickly get the help you need in your home or on the go. Automatic fall detection can call for help if a fall is detected and you are unable to press the help button.* No matter where you are in Canada you will still have access to 24/7 help should you experience a fall or need medical assistance.1
The all-in-one On the Go system will allow you to continue to live life to the fullest. It provides Two-Way Voice Communication directly from the pendant, fall detection that will call for help from anywhere when you can’t2, the ability to call multiple contacts and around-the-clock access to Lifeline’s response center associates.
On the Go is recommended for people who:
- Frequently socialize outside of the home
- Are interested in a mobile solution that can support an active lifestyle
- May be concerned about an accidental fall or their safety while outside the home
- Go out over 3 times a week alone (i.e. volunteering, visiting friends, running errands, exercising)
Personal Mobile Alert Button & Charging Station
Wear the On the Go Button around your neck as an adjustable pendant both inside and outside the home for access to help when you need it! The On the Go Button is designed to automatically place a call for help if a fall is detected and you are unable
to push your Help Button.
*Automatic fall detection does not detect 100% of falls. If able you should always press your button if you need help.
You can wear it in the shower or bath, where falls often occur.
The battery can last up to five days on a single charge. However, we still recommend charging on a daily basis. A simple to set up charging station is included.
The Button can be put in airplane mode when you travel by plane.
This single-piece system provides fast access to help whenever and wherever you need it.
