COSTS

The plans for the various options start at $29.95 a month and go up to $49.95 a month for the most advanced system.  However, if you prefer to pay for a full year in advance, you will be able to do so at a reduced rate.  The equipment comes at no charge, there are no other fees and shipping is free. All you pay is the one payment monthly, quarterly or annually, plus applicable taxes. It is a month to month contract, so you can cancel at anytime without charges. Just return the device when you are done with it.

WHICH DEVICE IS BEST FOR YOU?

If you are trying to choose a unit, sit down with your caregiver and discuss your wants and needs.  They system you choose will depend if you want it for use just at the home, or if you want to use it and have more mobility.  Having a discussion about it with your health care provider is also a good idea.  Your doctor will have a better idea of what you may need depending on your current health and fitness level.

Don't wait. Call now. Have piece of mind and security.
