Uses and precautions of the caregiver call button

by Mark Rowswell on May 26, 2021

From the perspective of safety and peace of mind, buying the right caregiver call button is very important.

From statistical data, falls usually occur in elderly people over 65 years old. And even if there are no serious consequences after the fall, some people usually fall again after a few months, causing adverse effects.

If you are a person living alone, falling is particularly dangerous, so it is best to prepare a fall detection sensor at home: a simple but effective device that can warn neighbors or caregivers: you may have fallen, and you need help in an emergency... this way If they do, they can provide you with timely help or medical services.

The medical alarm system can bring the desired sense of security to the elderly living alone. If they fall, get sick or experience an emergency, they can press a button on a small wearable device to connect to the receiver for emergency help.

After setting the button and pairing with the receiver, when you encounter an emergency or need help, just press the button, it will send a wireless signal to the receiver, and the receiver will send out the ringtone you set in advance. In this way, you can get help quickly. And the volume of the receiver is loud enough that even people with hearing loss can hear it.

For those who are worried about falling, they have a call button that can call someone without any intervention. The button can be worn on the neck as a pendant, the battery is durable and can be replaced at any time.

After purchasing the caregiver call button of CallToU, we also need to pay attention to several points:

  1. Battery standby time

The patient's emergency call button is usually battery-powered, which means that it needs to be replaced or recharged regularly. The main receiver can be directly plugged into a household AC power outlet, or it can be powered by a rechargeable battery. We should always prepare a backup power supply to ensure that the power supply can still work normally in the event of a power failure. This will allow the elderly to still get help in the event of a power failure, because in the dark, if you are not careful, you will accidentally fall. The consequences are very serious.

  1. Visual alert

In some cases, silent alarms may be preferable to loud volume alarms. Some medical paging systems use flashing lights or other visual reminders to notify caregivers of an emergency, without waking up the entire family at night.

  1. Price

The price of a basic medical paging system with a single receiver and a limited number of transmitters is only $30, but the effective range of use is an issue. Models with multiple receivers and transmitters (plus customizable features) usually cost between $30 and $75, and high-end systems with smart technology or external monitoring services usually cost more than $100.

Several common problems

Q: Can I wear it in the shower? Can the receiver be installed in the kitchen or bathroom?

Answer: The answer is yes. The call button of CallToU is waterproof and can be worn in the bath, even if it is exposed to water; and the receiver can be installed in the kitchen and bathroom, because these two elderly people often fall down local.

Q: How loud is the alarm sound on the receiver? Will my babysitter hear it?

Answer: The amount of alarm varies from model to model, but generally it will reach 50 to 90 decibels. It should be large enough to attract immediate attention from caregivers, but not as loud or harsh as a typical home alarm system.
