The appeal of a system that allows a person to call for help during an emergency (person has collapsed on the floor, for instance) is obvious.
But which is the best system?
The priciest is the heavily-advertised “Life Alert” product (undoubtedly the advertising budget plays a big role in this fact). And according to a Consumer Reports article in its “On Health” publication, other services are not only less expensive but provide more. Consider Bay Alarm Medical (877-522-9633) or Lifestation (877-478-3390).
