Link to Life was acquired by CST (Critical Signals Technology) for its response center which is backed up at an off-site emergency facility serviced by a separate power grid and telephone network. Headquartered in Pittsfield, Massachusetts, it has provided personal emergency response services since 1979. It offers its own fall detection system with a 24/7 Response Center and its services are available nationwide.
The Link to Life’s Fall Detection System works with the touch of a button or a signal from the fall alarm. With a signal, a Link To Life’s Care Center Representative contacts the subscriber and/or designated caregiver using 2-Way ClearVoice technology. If the subscriber is unable to respond, emergency services will be contacted immediately. Units have at least a 24 hour battery back-up.
The Link to Life Fall Detection System also supports several wireless accessories such as safety detection and medication reminders. For the fall detection system, there is a monthly fee and no charge for equipment or activation; there is no long-term commitment.
The company says the system is easy to set up and operate and that they will auto test it monthly. They offer professional installation for $50.
