How important are reviews for consumers?
You won't find a lot of people that know too much about the medical alert industry. It's not as sexy as a new car or a the lastest smartphone. Reviews help a consumer narrow down their buying decisions so they can quickly find the best solution for their loved ones.
What are the top 3 requirements for consumers? (i.e. price, warranty, etc)
We have a list of 5 requirements that can be found here: https://www.inhomesafetyguide.org/medical-alert-systems-overview/
What is a medical alert feature many consumers overlook?
In our opinion, the most overlooked medical alert feature is if the equipment is water-resistant or 100% waterproof. Most senior-related falls happen in the bathroom and it's extremely important to have the button on (with you) while in the shower/bathtub. Having a 100% waterproof pendant is often overlooked by customers.
