Philips Introduces Innovation

Royal Philips Electronics introduced the “Philips Lifeline GoSafe”, a new mobile Personal Emergency Response System (PERS) designed to help seniors at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) held in Las Vegas January 8-11, 2013.    

This latest innovation from Philips provides help for seniors from almost any location or in or out of the home. Users wear the GoSafe button around their neck as a pendant at all times, both inside and outside the home. In the event of an emergency, the user can push the button to initiate a call for help to the Lifeline Response Center of if a fall is detected then the AutoAlert feature automatically places a call to the Lifeline response Center without the need of the user to push the button.

GoSafe also provides:

  • Use of up to seven user-locating technologies designed to help identify the user’s location in a variety of situations
  • The button can go seven days between charges and the GoSafe help button can be worn even while charging
  • Pairing with an in-home communicator to maximize performance, redundancy, and reliability
