Can I wear the location-aware GPS pendant if I have a pacemaker?

If you have a pacemaker then you cannot wear the pendant and fall detection will need to be turned off. This is because a mobile device should not be placed near a pacemaker.

If you have a pacemaker, tell Taking Care when you place your order by telephone or select the pacemaker option when ordering online. Taking Care will turn off the fall detection feature. You should attach the location-aware GPS pendant to the supplied split ring, which can be attached to a belt clip or keys, so it is not worn around the neck. The location-aware GPS pendant must be kept at a minimum distance of 25cm from your pacemaker at all times. If you have any questions or concerns, Taking Care is happy to help. Call Taking Care on 0800 085 8032, Monday to Friday 8am - 6pm, to speak to an advisor.

Does the location-aware GPS pendant detect all falls?

The pendant has a sensor that uses an algorithm to recognise the difference between ‘hard’ falls and other movements. Like many similar devices on the market, it cannot guarantee to detect all falls because it is dependent on where it is worn and the amount of shock or impact from the fall. If you fall and are able to press the emergency button then you should do so.
