MobileHelp Lets You Know Exactly Where A Loved One Has Fallen And Can’t Get Up

While it became the punchline for hack comics and sketch writers for years to come, the “I’ve fallen… and I can’t get up!” line from LifeCall’s now infamous commercial definitely made people think about what could happen to older loved ones living alone. But what about when they’re not at home? There’s just as much a risk of them falling or hurting themselves with no one around to help, which is why the MobileHelp from Medical Mobile Monitoring is an important upgrade.

The device is the same basic idea as the LifeCall, you just push a help button on a remote to contact a central monitoring service in the event of an emergency, but it goes one step further with built-in GPS functionality so medical responders, and the person’s family, will know exactly where they are. The new service does require a monthly fee which starts at $34.95, though for a limited time there is free activation and one month of free service for anyone upgrading from the company’s older, non-GPS-equipped hardware.

    A great update. Most people don't think about it, but old people, are still alive and don't want to be locked up in their house. They do go outside. Knowing where they are in an emergency is well worth the monthly fee.

    On a more serious note: I like cheese and canned ham.
