A key accessory available with some medical alert systems is the emergency button, found in both pendant or wrist styles from MobileHelp. These operate as a remote trigger to activate the medical alert device, which allows the user to get emergency help.
The wrist button accessory style tends to be very popular with consumers, because if offers 1) stylish discretion and 2) it is conveniently located on the body if it is needed.
A wrist button has the benefit of looking like any other common wrist-worn accessory – from smart watches to fitness trackers. This allows the user to wear it without feeling any of the stigma they may be concerned about from wearing a medical alert device. And yet with a simple twist of the wrist and press of the button – help is on the way.
In terms of places to wear a medical alert accessory, the wrist is one of the most effective – in the event of an emergency, it’s more than likely not to move or swing around, so the user can still easily access the help button.
