Limmex Emergency Watch for persons with health problems
Limmex cannot influence the health of the clients - but it can influence their safety! In this way the Limmex Emergency Watch is providing a valuable service to the affected person as well as their relatives and next of kin.
The following persons can benefit from Limmex Emergency Watches:
- Persons with MS, epilepsy, dizziness, allergies, rheumatics, cancer
- Persons with chronic illnesses such as heart insufficiency, lung illnesses and diabetes
- Persons who must leave hospital, e.g. following a fracture of the neck of the femur
- People with physical limitations, e.g. paraplegics or blind people
- Persons with temporary complications, e.g. risk pregnancies
- ... and many others
Family doctors and home care employees have the possibility to give the Limmex Emergency Watch to their patients e.g. during an acute illness. Within a very short time the telephone numbers of the family doctor or home care nurses can be saved. Thus, in case of emergency patients required can directly speak to a familiar and qualified person via the Limmex Emergency Watch.
In addition, the Limmex Watch can be used in stationary establishments such as hospitals and retirement and care homes. In comparison to fixed installed emergency call buttons, Limmex is constantly within reach and as a result increases the safety of the clients.
