Wrist Alarms for the Elderly
Wrist worn personal alarm
SureSafe’s personal alarms have been designed to provide older people, lone workers, or anyone who may be vulnerable, complete peace of mind that, should they get injured or suddenly become unwell that help can be quickly summoned.
Lightweight, easy to wear and unobtrusive, a wrist-worn alarm allows you to go about daily life as usual, while knowing that, should an accident happen, help is available at the touch of a button. Less obvious than wearing a pendant, a wrist alarm can remove the stigma some people worry comes with having a personal alarm. SureSafe’s broad range of wrist alarms for the elderly even look like Fit-Bits and ‘smart watches’.
How do wrist personal alarms work?
A wrist worn personal alarm gives you access to help whenever you need it. But how does it work?
Depending on the model that you choose, once you press the SOS button on your wrist alarm, it will connect either through your home landline, mobile phone signal or digitally to call for help.
This means that, should you become unwell or fall, there’s no need to worry about trying to find your mobile phone or get to the landline – with a wrist worn alarm you can call for help directly. It is physically on you all the time, even in the shower!
You can opt to nominate family or friends who will be alerted when you press the button, or your call can go through to SureSafe’s 24/7 monitoring centre who can get you the help you need.
Additionally, not everyone can use a mobile phone. An elderly person may have difficulties due to shaking hands, sight problems or forgetfulness – they may also struggle to find it or use it during a sudden illness or fall. A personal alarm wristband can provide you or your loved one with the independence and confidence to live their lives how they like, whether they’re in the garden, out to see friends or enjoying a spot of shopping.
With a speaker in the wrist personal alarm, you can have a two-way conversation with a SureSafe Operator or one of your chosen nominated contacts. You can wear the wrist alarm at all times, even when in bed or in the shower – you don’t need to depend on your telephone. Your emergency button is with you all the time you are wearing your wrist alarm for the elderly.

Why you should choose a mobile SureSafe wrist alarm with two-way communication
What happens if you or your loved one has a fall in the bedroom, bathroom, or kitchen?
Most standard alarms, especially lower-quality models, are based on dated technology which will only have a base unit that plugs into your landline. The base has an integrated speaker which you speak to when you need help – you can’t talk through the pendant. Additionally, with traditional alarms, if the speaker inside the base unit doesn’t have a good enough range, your voice won’t even be picked up.
If the ‘standard type’ alarm is plugged into the telephone socket in the hallway downstairs, the chances are you won’t be able to speak to the respondent once pressing the SOS button, so they won’t know what you need. What’s worse, if you’re in the garden when you fall or feel unwell then there’s no chance of two-way communication.
Therefore, a SureSafe mobile wrist alarm can mean the difference in you getting the help you need, when you need it. SureSafe talking wrist alarms for the elderly are fitted with advanced technology, so you can be sure that when you press the SOS button you will hear the person you have contacted loud and clear, and more importantly, they will hear you. Get the help you need, fast, and the peace of mind hearing a friendly voice on the other end of the line telling you help is on the way.

Wrist worn fall detection
Many of our wrist alarms come with automatic fall detection.
These wrist worn fall alarms are equipped with special sensors which can identify if you fall.
The change in air pressure, speed of movement of device and any impact when hitting the floor can be detected by the elderly alarm bracelet, and can trigger the alarm. If the fall detection sensor is triggered, the elderly alarm bracelet can then automatically call for help from either your family and friends, or our dedicated help centre.

Studies have shown that in 80% of fall cases, rapid action means both a better chance of survival, and also a faster recovery time for the person who has fallen.
