These days, we hear a lot about self-isolation because, at least for now, is the only weapon we have against COVID-19. Especially for those who are at risk, like the elderly and immunocompromised.
A lot of emphasis is put on those going into self-isolation, but what about their caregivers? They take up a lot of responsibility and have concerns of their own. Caring for an elderly or ill family member is expensive, exhausting and time consuming. Now we also have to factor social distancing as well, which makes it difficult for people to check on one another in person.
Peace of mind for everyone
MedicSignal is a medic alert that responds when the user cannot. To show everything’s OK, the user swipes an alarm. If they don’t swipe, MedicSignal will contact friends and family with the GPS location, letting them know something is wrong. You can choose the person the MedicSignal alert is sent to. Someone you know will help you no matter what.
The app, available in for Apple and Android, can be especially useful for those in self-isolation away from family because it gives them another layer of protection. Depending on the situation, it can be a lot easier to not swipe an alarm and “sit this one out” than try to call an ambulance for yourself or try to explain to someone on the phone what’s going on.
For caregivers, MedicSignal reduces the stress of having to “keep checking in” on their loved one and always worry that something might be wrong the next time they call. It also gives them clear guidance on what’s expected from them – which is to receive a message and pass it on to the emergency services.
MedicSignal can improve the overall physical and emotional health of caregivers and health professionals by freeing up spare time, reducing burnout, and allowing more privacy and better healthcare.
Avoid overwhelming the health system
This technology puts the control of health alerts in the hands of users and their families, with the great potential of reducing pressure on the health system, from ambulance services to health professionals. MedicSignal detects unresponsive users, and it provides those in self-isolation the opportunity to get help when they need it. This is important so the health system keeps functioning as it should and everyone stays healthy.
Accessible for everyone
MedicSignal can be used in many nations, including developing countries. As an app, the service is accessible and affordable for everyone, no need of expensive equipment or extensive technological knowledge.
Given the current crisis, we would like to get the word out to more people who might benefit from using MedicSignal. Please share this information with your family and friends and let’s flatten the curve together!
You deserve to get help. MedicSignal is the advantage you need. For more information see www.self-isolation.com
