If you’re new to using a medical alert alarm, you may have a few questions about how they work. Different personal medical alert alarms such as the APERS Medical Alert Alarm Pendant can work in a variety of ways and have unique capabilities. We take a closer look at how our Medical Alert Alarm Pendant and our Go Pendant work.

Please note that we are no longer selling the Go Pendant, as we are waiting for the 4G version to become available.

Medical Alert Alarm Pendant

The Medical Alert Alarm Pendant is designed to be used in and around the home and yard. This pendant has a 300-metre range in the open air and will work in and around most suburban homes and their yards. These are an excellent option for most people as the base station is mains powered with a battery back up with the pendant battery lasting up to six years. While the pendant range does limit the usability to just in and around your home, these offer a low maintenance solution for someone who spends most of their time at home.

How does it work?
When an emergency occurs, you will be able to press a button on your pendant which will connect you to the APERS 24/7 Care Centre through the Medical Alert Alarm Base Unit.

Go Pendant

The Go Pendant, is a mobile alternative to the Medical Alarm, and has been specifically designed for use outside of the house. A compact solution to the Medical Alert Alarm Pendant, this Personal Emergency Response System can be used almost all over Australia – you just need to be in range of the Telstra network!

How does it work?
Our Go Pendants have a built-in SIM card, microphone, and hands-free speaker, enabling you to speak to our 24-hour APERS Care Team. Whether you’re walking along the beach, on a holiday or doing your weekly shopping, the Go Pendant gives you peace of mind of your safety.
