The Solution To Independent Living
Sip and Puff
With a slight sip or puff from the mouth this switch will trigger the medical alert unit which will contact the Care Center. The switch requires only a tiny amount of pressure change, so the user does not need a lot of respiratory strength to use this switch.If the disability does not allow you to be able to press a pendant, there is a device called a "Sip and Puff" which will allow you to suck into a plastic straw, which activates the wireless transmitter. The signal is then sent to the base unit, which automatically dials the monitoring center.
