Lifeline Personal Response System is an emergency alert system with monitoring service designed for use by seniors or individuals with disabilities who are at risk for medical emergencies. The user wears or carries a small battery-powered wireless transmitter. When the user presses the button on the transmitter, it sends a signal to a receiver unit connected to the user's telephone. A signal goes through by telephone to the Lifeline Emergency Response Center. Center personnel are then in voice contact with the user. If the personnel get no verbal response, they then call a "Responder" person previously designated by the user. Upon arriving at the user's home, the Responder presses a button on the Lifeline unit which signals the Emergency Response Center. The Center then calls back to talk to the Responder and see what kind of help is needed. The Center will notify emergency personnel if necessary. If the user does not either use the telephone (for any phone call) or press a special reset button within a certain amount of time, the emergency response procedure will begin automatically. A set of adaptive switches (extra) are available for use with Lifeline. POWER: 5-year battery. DIMENSIONS: 1.5 x 1.5 x 0.6 inches. WEIGHT: 1.2 ounces.
Notes: On September 22, 2009, the U. S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cautioned users of the Philips Lifeline Personal Help Button worn around the neck. The device can become a choking hazard if it becomes entangled on other objects worn around the neck.
