QMedic Named One of The Best Medical Alert Systems by Caring.com
Caring.com, the nation’s leading online destination for caregivers, has named QMedic to its list of top medical alert systems for 2019. The medical alert provider was recognized as the Best for Compliance and Activity Monitoring.
QMedic was one of fourteen companies that qualified for the list based on its demonstration of excellent customer service, transparency and affordability. With a variety of medical alert systems on the market, this list was developed to help seniors and their loved ones easily identify those with the highest overall value. As a part of the review process, Caring.com also identified key features to look for in a system such as waterproofing, fall detection technology, location monitoring and mobile help button.
“We have a fundamentally different approach to medical alert services than traditional products,” says Sombit Mishra, QMedic Founder & CEO “We are the only medical alert solution that is able to proactively monitor activity and wear patterns 24/7 to drive compliance and safety."
According to the CDC, one out of four older adults fall every year with 20 percent of those falls resulting in broken bones or head trauma. A medical alert system enables seniors to get immediate help in the event of an emergency and provides their loved ones with peace of mind.
