Com-Care Voice-garde ™ is an innovative communication system that provides an essential lifeline for elderly or disabled people to call for help. Optima developed the technically challenging product from initial concept to full production in a very tight timeframe.
The system is worn as a simple pendant that communicates with the base station using DECT technology to provide full two-way communication. A key benefit to the users is that the technology is familiar, being that of a traditional phone, so no advanced knowledge of the system is required.
The Voice-garde™ home unit has the means to automatically dial out to a user-designated monitoring centre, or any of ten pre-programmable emergency contact telephone numbers, and can even interface with additional hardwired peripherals, such as external security/medical sensors or systems.
– The wearer has access to hands-free, two-way communication within the boundaries of the wireless operating system.
– The speaker housed within the pendant or pull-cord automatically operates in loudspeaker mode.
– The volume level can be pre-set by the user depending on its intended use. Voice-garde™ is the most technically advanced social alarm system to date.
