Service Description
Service Description
Freedom Medical Alarms are built here in NZ by 100% Kiwi-owned company Chiptech, a leading force in medical technology. There are a variety of devices to choose from and after a complimentary consultation with a specialist.

• IN-HOME (A or B): Feel safe and comfortable around your home and garden, with our in-home SEVEN LiTE base unit and accompanying wrist or neck pendant.
• ROAMING: Live your life with no limits - the 4G GO Pendant uses NZ cellular coverage to stay connected no matter where in the country you roam.
• ROAMING & IN-HOME: Enjoy the best of both worlds: use the GO Pendant when you’re out and about, and let our Home setup do the heavy lifting when you’re home.

The alarm consists of a base unit and a pendant. The base unit plugs into mains power and automatically connects to the cellular mobile network to send alarm signals. When the pendant is activated, it dials directly through to the Ambulance Communication Centre. You will receive a phone call back through the base unit. If there is no reply from you an ambulance will be dispatched immediately.

Meeting the needs of older people
Meeting the needs of older people
• A direct connection to medical emergency triage specialists, so clients receive the right help in the right timeframe.
• Any ambulance charges resulting from the use of a Freedom Medical Alarm are included free of charge as part of our service.
• Freedom Medical Alarms installs a key safe with every installation , which enables quick access for paramedics in an emergency.
• Connection to specialist community health services via HealthcareNZ Limited, who can provide post-accident support if required.

By having a direct connection to an emergency ambulance service, a response to a Freedom Medical Alarm removes the need to transfer important information such as your address details, medical history, and key information to enable the paramedic’s quick access into your home. All of your primary data is accessible to the emergency communications staff at the time of the activation and through the medical emergency triage process the client’s current status can be determined. This means a faster response, better tailored to your needs.
