Our Client’s Comments

“I feel safer at work now”

Matthew from Peninsula Health is a senior clinician that works out in the community.  He often feels vulnerable going into patients home alone and feels the Duress alarm gives him the peace of mind that if an incident did occur he’s not alone and can get help quickly. 

The benefit of the Duress alarm over the mobile phone is that it is quick and easy, no unlocking your phone or finding your contacts – it’s just the press of one button.

“I feel the MePACS alarm gives me peace of mind and I feel safer at work, knowing I can go to work confident that I can come home safe to my family.” Said Mat.
