We've been a user of the Assure for a little while now, and it's been a real boon, although we aren't the core target demographic (she's in her forties)
My wife suffers from quite a range of medical disorders which is a real worry, and knowing that she can call for help when I'm at work, or that I'll get a call if she collapses does provide real peace of mind.
I know there are products which have been around longer, but they look so ugly, and this one is just a nicer bit of kit - it costs less, lasts longer, does more, and looks much better. I'd love it if it came in other colours, but grey will do for now, maybe next year!
Peace of Mind
We bought the Acticheck for my 80year old dad as he has AF and keeps blacking out and falling. This monitor is amazing we have 3 responders linked to it and we get updates throughout the day and it gives me and my sister assurance dad is ok . It gives dad peace of mind knowing help is at hand straight away. The only downside for me is it only works within his flat and not when he goes out of range. But overall a great product and we also saw a discount code on Facebook which gave us an extra 15% off. The service was excellent I ordered it had a query that was dealt with immediately and the delivery was next day ( I paid a little bit more for this) as we wanted it asap. Overall great product and great service .
Be Assured, it's great!
Great device, easy to set up, comfortable to wear and lightweight. Works really well as described, useful features, which can be set to suit lifestyle of wearer. Simple to adjust on your own control panel online. Highly recommended, and customer service response is first class. 5 stars!!!
Something completely different (and much better)
I worry about what would happen to my pets if anything happened to me. I live alone and though I am active I sometimes go for several days without seeing anyone. I didn't want to change my behaviour and wanted the freedom to go out without having to report in to someone.
I was looking for some time before I saw this and it looked like it would answer my needs. It is comfortable and I wear it all the time, and when I go out I don't feel like it is something I should have left at home for fear of embarrassment. So I know this is with me whenever I might need it. The only time I am aware of it is a couple of times a day I have chosen for it to buzz on my wrist if I am at home. I just press a button on it to check in that I am OK and carry on as if nothing had happened - but just more confident.
So Acticheck give me and my family confidence that I'm well and if I'm not help is close by.
the helpline staff are brilliant
I chose this device after considering several alternatives because of the "wellness check" feature. Other alarms require you to actively press something; this one notices if you fail to press, so if you don't wake up one morning......! Fortunately I haven't yet tested the "fall detection" and hopefully will never need to. Also the efficiency of the helpline staff are brilliant; a rare thing, a helpline which actually helps!
