Alert button for emergencies

The Panic Button is a wearable alert button that enables the user to call for help in emergencies. The wireless button can be placed anywhere or carried around by the user, with an option to use a necklace or a wristband. These options allow for use cases in home care or security solutions.

Vulnerable people such as the elderly or the disabled can wear the Panic Button around the wrist or the neck and use it to call for help. It can further be placed in rooms with a high risk of accidents as the bathroom to ensure that a Panic Button is always in reach in an emergency and users can get help when they need it. Alarms for the elderly and the disabled can give relatives and friends peace of mind and reassurance that their loved one is safe while they are not present.

The Panic Button can further be used as an alert button in security solutions. Placed under a desk or in reach from the cash register at businesses, a push of the button can trigger a silent alarm.

Key features:

  • Alert button
  • Water-resistant

Independence and security of the elderly and disabled

The risk of falling increases as people age, and it can be difficult for elderly people to get up on their own. A fall alarm for the elderly can, therefore, be a great help for themselves and their relatives, as it helps the elderly maintain an independent lifestyle in their own home.

Disabled people are vulnerable to dangers, even if they live on their own or together with family or a caregiver. The Panic Button can help the disabled person gain more independence and security.

Mounting and use options

The button can be used/mounted in multiple ways:

  • Hand-held: Used as a remote control
  • Neck: Worn around the neck as a necklace, using the optional lanyard
  • Wrist: Worn on the arm, using the optional wrist band
  • Wall: Mounted on wall or door, using the optional mounting tape
