The panic button for senior is small and portable, whether worn around the neck or on the wrist, allowing them to easily set off the alarm when they need help, which gives them a sense of reassurance that their needs can be answered quickly and not be ignored.
  • Reduce anxiety about falling. Older people are less flexible than younger people have poor balance, and the more afraid they are of falling, the more likely they are to have accidents. With the panic button, the elderly can relax when they live alone and even do some exercise without worry.
  • Give you peace of mind. Not only the elderly will feel safe because of the panic button, but also their family members or related guardians who work far away from home. They will not only receive the signal in the first time when the elderly encounter emergency but also log in to the supervision background to check the elderly’s activity track and whether they take medicine on time.

MOKOSMART has two types of emergency panic buttons for elderly that are very popular and deployed in many places across the country, namely B1 and LW004. The main difference is their transmission technology and corresponding nuances. Let’s briefly introduce some features of these two types of old people panic Buttons so that you can get to know more about our panic alarms.

Technology

B1 panic button uses Bluetooth transmission technology, which can cover up to 140m and is suitable for elderly people who are active at home.

LW004-PB adopts low-power long-distance LoRaWAN transmission technology, which can be located by Bluetooth, GPS or a combination of both. Its coverage is as high as 5 km. Compared with B1, it is more suitable for open outdoors and patients in hospitals as a medical panic button. Besides, it can also be used in schools and other empty places.

Deployment method

Personal panic buttons can be worn around an elderly person’s neck or wrist. Alternatively, you can use double-sided adhesive tape to place distress panic buttons anywhere in your home that is easily accessible.

SOS alarm

Both of our two wireless panic buttons are one-button triggered with a built-in microphone and speaker. When the elderly need help, they can press the button to trigger the alarm and report the location.

Fall detection

In addition, B1 has a built-in 3-axis accelerometer, which will trigger an alarm when the old person falls accidentally. Relevant personnel can receive the alarm in the background and take corresponding measures. With fall detection, users can rest easy knowing that they will get the help they need even if they can’t press the help button on their device after a fall.

Treatment compliance

In addition to the SoS alarm and fall detection, the panic button can also be used for treatment compliance. Old people are more forgetful than young people and often forget to take medicine on time. With this program, the elderly can press the button after taking the medicine every time, so that the person in charge of the background, such as the doctor in the hospital or the guardian of the elderly, can remotely track whether the elderly has taken the medicine on time. If the elderly fail to report the information achieved within the set time, the alarm system of panic alarm will be triggered.

Waterproof

B1 panic alarm for elderly is IP65 waterproof and LW004-PB is IP66 waterproof. Being waterproof with a high rate is an important indicator to check whether the panic button works well because the bathroom is a common place for elderly people to fall.
