Synopsis:

Medical alerts, or “Personal Emergency Response Systems” (PERS), have been available for decades but growth rates are relatively flat despite the latest cellular and mobile on-the-go offerings from traditional PERS companies. Internet of Things (IoT) advances from the home automation, mobile health and smartwatch industries promise to drive adoption and enable seamless integration with a variety of connected health solutions.

In contrast to traditional systems, mobile PERS provides location services and seamless cloud integration with opportunities providing advanced data analytics about the user’s inactivity or unusual activity patterns that enable new levels of predictive remote monitoring for caregivers. Increasingly, these systems work with a variety of wearables, in-home devices, and non-stigmatizing smartwatches.

Growth for the latest mobile PERS solutions has accelerated over the last two years due to several startups and newer entrants that are bridging the gap between traditional PERS systems and consumer IoT.   Acquisitions such as Best Buy of GreatCall and Connect America’s of the Aging and Caregiving Group from Philips signifies this transition.   A few of the latest innovators include:  

 • Aloe Care Health’s AI-enabled PERS system with voice assistance and in-home sensors. 

• Amazon’s Alexa based medical alert subscription service. 

• CarePredict, with a mobile PERS and location-based COVID-19 tracing solution

• Reemo Health with a smartwatch based mobile health platform. 

• Sensorcall with a multi-sensor IoT device for ADL monitoring with two-way voice communications with caregivers using an integrated microphone. 

• Mobile apps using the Apple Watch and other wearables such as Best Buy’s Lively service and FallCall solutions.

By 2026, there will be 6.5 million PERS users in North America up from 4 million in 2020, driven primarily by systems using sensor networks and AI software. IoT systems will make up 84% of the market by this time from 70% in 2020.

This research service is based on ongoing phone interviews and surveys with thousands of consumers and hundreds of retailers, healthcare organizations, home service providers and vendors. It provides extensive data on assistive care technologies focused on the Mobile PERS segment. Your customized data includes 6-year market size forecasts for North America total subscribers and revenues (equipment and services).

Optional data components include market size forecasts by unit shipments, equipment revenue, market channel and/or product segment; a customized survey; and/or in-depth competitive analysis. Other geographical scope options include global, Europe, or by country.
