Personal alarms to help you remain independent and healthy for longer

Chiptech Go alarm from Taking Care

Taking Care, providers of 24/7 emergency alarms for the elderly across the UK, have teamed up with assistive technology provider Chiptech International to develop a product offering that gives alarm users total freedom to do what they love, with the peace of mind that help is on hand wherever they are.

Traditionally, when choosing a personal alarm option, customers have been limited to choosing between an alarm that works within the home and garden or a GPS enabled alarm that works well out and about, but may not provide the most reliable service inside the home. These limitations often lead to personal alarm users feeling like they are restricted to staying at home in order to stay safe or having to purchase an additional device and then remembering to swap alarms in order to venture out of the house.

The Taking Care Anywhere package is the first dual integration of two of Chiptech’s digital devices - the GO GPS pendant and the EVA, a digital in-home alarm system. The integration of both of these products means that alarm users will be able to have freedom to go out and about wearing the fall detecting GPS GO pendant. However, when they return home, the same GO pendant will then connect to the fully digital base unit for complete peace of mind at home - without the worry of poor signal or mobile blackspots. Users do not need to remember to change devices as the EVA base unit will automatically connect to the GO pendant.

David Hammond, CEO UK, Chiptech International Limited, said:

“Chiptech are delighted to be working with Taking Care to provide a package that allows people to be independent inside and outside the home with the safety of the 24/7 Taking Care Emergency Resolution Centre. The digital solution provides a resounding “Yes” to some of the most common feedback requests, “Can I wear my pendant down the shops and at home” and “Can I speak through my pendant”.

The devices are fully digital and are future proofed using the Social Care Alarm Internet Protocol (SCAIP) protocol on our Jontek Answerlink platform for enhanced resilience and reduced call connection time to Taking Care’s Emergency Resolution Centres.

Steve Gates, Managing Director of Taking Care, said:

“We recognise that many people who could benefit from a personal alarm still want to be active and independent outside of the home. We have worked closely with Chiptech to create alarm solution that gives people freedom to do what they love with the reassurance that they can still get help if they need it.”
