The watch has been developed to help encourage telecare users to wear their personal triggers throughout the day. By combining a watch with a pendant the users are more likely to wear it and as a result will be provided with added protection as their ability to raise an alarm is increased.

Fixed near a door, this button, which is linked to a base unit, will provide reassurance in the event of an unexpected caller. It can be used to summon assistance or verbal prompts can be given via the Lifeline base unit. Such incidents will be automatically recorded and may be used as evidence.

A tipper can be supplied for those with insufficient strength or limited dexterity to lift and dispense their medication. CODE-V12P £70.20 (£58.50)
