Alert alarm. An elderly man makes a cup of tea while wearing an emergency alert alarm on his right wrist. The alert alarm will send a signal, when pressed, to a local doctor or hospital indicating that this patient needs emergency help. Elderly people are prone to a large number of disorders which may mean their hospitalisation or transferral to an elderly persons home. Wearing a device such as an emergency alert alarm means that elderly people can achieve a degree of independence in their day-to-day lives while having the reassurance of emergency help at hand.
