Expanding the conversation about medical alerts
... from just health to the importance of freedom and autonomy, and ask some questions that really aren’t asked.
It is a matter of not simply dignity but a matter of how we think about living our lives in any circumstance of potential frailty or health and safety. We now have the ability to create quick responses to medical need but how much are we letting computers decide when to have people called. How much are we taking the decision about your own life and safety out of your hands altogether? Medic signal wants to change that conversation because so far, every medical alert solution on the market has focused on the physical aspects of health. But in doing so, they take decisions about safety right out of the hands of the people they are supposed to protect.
Too many lives are lost due to health-related emergencies that aren't dealt with promptly enough. This has created the need for a service to help those who can’t call, signal, or ask for help because of their medical condition.
Medic Signal’s driving purpose is to revolutionize the medic-alert industry through a smarter, effective, more practical medical-alert solution that allows the owner to maintain their independence and freedom. Safety and autonomy are the main priority with this system
