PERS+ and how it works
The system consists of a console that’s connected to an AC wall outlet for power. It has it’s own cellular connection to the central monitoring station and built-in back-up battery in the event of a power outage. Should an emergency occur, the user presses the pendant button that opens a 2-way voice conversation through the built-in console microphone and speaker with a care specialist who will assess the situation, then take appropriate action. When emergency help is dispatched, family or friends are notified of the incident as per the user’s directives.
A PERS device can reassure patients help can be obtained if needed.

Activity Reporting Monitor (2 methods of reporting)
1. Automatically: The Monitor is placed in the home where the user generally visits beginning each day such as the bathroom or kitchen, then sends a signal to the console and automatically resets itself.
2. Manually: You simply press the GREEN Reset button when you begin your day, which resets the system.
This can save on the cost of in-home non-medical help and watch-time by assuring that the user has been checked on and up and about each day with their daily routine.
28% of persons “found down” are either dead or die in the hospital.
