BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov. 2, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Empowering consumers with another means to get help, MobileHelp®, a leader in mobile Personal Emergency Response Systems (mPERS) and healthcare technology, today announced the availability of its Voice Activated Button. As the newest member in the company's family of emergency response solutions, the button can connect the user to help through a simple vocal command.

According to new research from the National Center for Biotechnology Information, the vast majority of participants who own a pendant do not wear it for the entire day: For those customers, voice activation provides an additional way to access help.  

The Voice Activated Button works in conjunction with the MobileHelp Cellular Base Station and/or Mobile Device, and can be mounted on a flat surface, such as a wall, or placed on a table top. The new device allows the user to access emergency help in three ways:

  1. Saying "Call for help!" within vocal range of the device;
  2. Pressing the red Emergency Call Button on the device;
  3. Pulling the cord out of the device (for wall-mount option only).

After activating the device, the user will be connected to the company's trained emergency call center operators. And as with all MobileHelp emergency response devices, the operator will arrange for the level of help the consumer requires – whether that is a nearby loved one or the right level of emergency medical response.

"Advancements in technology are allowing us to provide emergency response solutions that leverage the power of voice enhancement," said Robert Flippo, CEO of MobileHelp. "This allows us to offer best-in-class solutions that cast an even wider safety net around our consumers."

The Voice Activated Button will be available later in November of this year.
