HomeSafe is a range of wearable help buttons that enable voice communication with the Lifeline help service. The compact waterproof button can be snapped into a pendant or wrist strap, and worn safely and inconspicuously at all times. GoSafe provides a unique combination of automatic fall detection, cellular communication and location technologies in a simple, compact, waterproof pendant that users wear 24 hours a day, wherever they may be. Both systems pair with a home base station that provides a phone connection, a high performance loud speaker and a one-button interface to simplify communication / feedback from the system.

We think this immediate-help-communicator is extremely well made as it combines automatic fall recognition with emergency call technology and location transmission. The transmitter features an adaptable design and is visually appealing. It is an innovative design which contributes toward optimal support and care within society.
