The QMedic Medical Alert System
***Update 9/3/15- QMedic’s advanced monitoring service is currently on back-order. They still offer a basic PERS service, but their smart monitoring and customizable alert features are on hold until the release of their updated system in early 2016.
QMedic offers a traditional PERS bracelet or pendant with a button to push when help is needed. In addition to these features, QMedic also has some very smart sensing technology that we love. The QMedic medical alert system will send text alerts to loved ones/caregivers if the user is not wearing the device, fails to get out of bed or is inactive for an extended period of time. Monthly Wellness Reports are also available to monitor activity, sleep, and safety in the home.
What We Like: Waterproof, Smart sensing technology, inactivity alerts. Free shipping, 30-day money back guarantee. Affordable, no hidden fees, no contract. 800-1,000 ft range. Will notify users preferences in case of an emergency (911 or family/ friends). Monthly wellness reports.
What We Would Change: No GPS features, tethered to home land-line.
Recommend?: Absolutely. We love that it’s waterproof and think the sensing technology is a huge step above traditional personal emergency response systems. We would love to see a GPS enabled version of QMedic.
Where to Purchase: Currently, purchases must be made through the QMedic website.
Cost: $30 per month. No long term contract. No equipment purchase. Free Shipping, 30-day money back guarantee.
We found the staff at QMedic very easy to work with. This started in their marketing department and spread to the folks at the call center who wanted to make sure I was okay when I pushed the button (many times).
Great Speaker Range on the QMedic
What really impressed me was the range of the speaker on the base station throughout my home. The call center and I played “can you hear me now?” on both levels of my home and we could still hear each other the whole time. The base station speaker is really loud if you are in the same room, but perfect if a user needs help a distance away from the base station.
We will be adding QMedic to our “Favorites List”, if you have used QMedic and have any feedback about your experience, we would love to hear about it below!
