The recently concluded CES 2013 at Las Vegas, Nevada, capped a hectic week for many in the consumer electronics industry, but somehow, some of the devices that are worthy of mention seemed to have slipped through our news net. One of them would be the Philips Lifeline GoSafe, which is a new generation of mobile personal emergency response system (PERs) which was specially designed to help senior citizens eke more out of life. This latest innovation from Philips will deliver a unique combination of fall detection capabilities, accompanied by a suite of locating technologies as well as two-way cellular voice communication that will help users gain the confidence to continue doing the activities that they enjoy, knowing that they are able to summon help should the situation arise.
Continuing the long tradition of the Lifeline range that has clocked up nearly four decades of experience in empowering seniors, the new Philips Lifeline GoSafe will incorporate its fair share of Philips’ trusted features, while it goes ahead to expand PERs functionality beyond the home, so that users have access to the Philips Lifeline Response Center at all times. We are talking 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, now how about that for peace of mind?
The Philips Lifeline GoSafe will redefine the PERs niche market, as it intends to change the way people think about aging. In fact, the GoSafe is packed with its fair share of advantages that include (but are not limited to) the widely adopted AutoAlert fall detection capabilities that is capable of detecting a fall automatically, following that up with a call for help to the designated number should the user fail to push the GoSafe button.
There is also two-way cellular voice communication, and you can use up to seven user-locating technologies which was specially designed to help identify the user’s location in a wide range of situations. Sporting a single, attractive, easy to wear, waterproof button, all one needs to do is press the button to access help – regardless of where they are.
No idea on pricing just yet, so stay tuned!
