PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Medical Guardian, a leading provider of Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS), has been listed as the top medical alert system for 2016 by Rankings.com, a review site that works with industry experts to rank and award the top products and resources in numerous categories. Rankings.com completes an annual review of the Best Medical Alert Systems, with Medical Guardian beating out competitors to claim the top spot for 2016 as well as the Editor’s Award for “Best Monitoring Services.”
Medical Guardian was selected as this year’s Best Overall winner for its highly-rated basic service features and reputation that surpasses even some of the longest-standing companies in the space. Additionally, Medical Guardian’s monitoring centers proved superior to competitors. The company’s U.S-based call centers are CSAA 5-Diamond certified and manned by EMD certified operators, with 24/7 monitoring and operator service. Medical Guardian received perfect scores in the Rankings.com Monitoring Services metric, the only company to do so in any metric in this year’s ranking.
“We’re thrilled to be recognized by Rankings.com as the top medical alert system provider and the company with the best monitoring services,” said Geoff Gross, founder and CEO of Medical Guardian. “Providing customers and their loved ones with peace of mind can only be achieved by providing a superior medical alert system and unparalleled support, which is what we strive for every day at Medical Guardian.”
Megan Driscoll, an occupational therapist specializing in both orthopedic and neurological rehabilitation, as well as senior care and independent living assessments, guided the Rankings.com in-house research team in this year's review. The team identified the best alert systems by compiling a list of 38 key features, selected for their importance to seniors living independently, and grouping them into five core metrics. After narrowing down over 60 systems available on the market today to a final group of 25 established brands, each was graded objectively across those key features and ranked accordingly. The results of that extensive review determined this year's Editor's Award for Best Overall system, as well as separate awards for the highest rated in each individual metric: Basic System Features, Monitoring Services, Premium Features, Company Reputation, and Cost.
