Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS)
Personal emergency response systems (PERS for short) bring emergency personnel when needed-which is typically requested by way of the activation of a wearable pendant or transmitter. Some form of these systems have been around since the 70’s. More recently, technology has provided more sophisticated systems which many are coining as PERS 2.0 which includes devices that can also detect when an emergency situation is at hand and provide automatic activation of a call for help as opposed to the user requesting help.. Models that offer automatic fall detection options are a good example, However, there is also convergence happening in the marketplace between PERS (Safety) AND Health & Wellness monitoring systems AND social connectedness technologies. A good example of this is provided by the GrandCare platform.
