A representative for speak with the system user to find out about the situation and contact one of the users contacts or local emergency services to assist the senior user.

PAX Mobile Alert With Fall Detection with GPS
Alert 1‘s PAX mobile fall detection system is a mobile on-the-go pendant that incorporates fall detection sensors. While the Kelsi allows seniors to voluntarily push the button when they need help, the PAX will monitor for falls and automatically send an alert to the monitoring center once they confirm that a fall has taken place and the user cannot get up. Regardless of the sensors recording a fall and sending an immediate notification, seniors can also push the button when they need some help. Automatic fall detection technology is not 100% reliable, so it is important to press the button whenever possible. The PAX Mobile Fall Detection pendant with GPS is designed to work anywhere in the US based through a cellular phone connection.
The PAX Mobile Fall Detection System comes with a charging cradle, lanyard, beltclip and user guide. Although bulkier than the Kelsi described above, it is still lightweight (1.7 oz) and small enough to be worn with a lanyard or beltclip. It has GPS integrated along with built-in speaker and microphone. The battery life is up to 36 hours but it is recommended that users charge their device every day. The device can also be worn in showers.
