The Amplicomms BigTel 50 Alarm Plus an independent living emergency SOS phone

The Amplicomms BigTel 50 is an affordable telecare solution that allows older people or those with physical limitations wanting to live independently to quickly and easily raise help in an emergency.

The phone operates like any other landline but with the benefit of an emergency pendent alarm that is remotely and wirelessly connected to the telephone. When pushing the button on the water resistant SOS transmitter – a pendant which can be worn around the neck or on the wrist – a red light appears to confirm it is calling three pre-programmed numbers which could be relatives or emergency services. When the call is answered, BigTel 50 Plus plays a pre-recorded message switching to hands free mode so a remote conversation can take place in case of a fall etc.

For people with hearing loss the BigTel 50 Plus has extra loud calls of + 40 dB, a loud adjustable ring tone and flashing lights for call alerts.Hearing aid compatibility means the phone won’t cause interference to hearing aids. There is also a tone control so the sound can be adjusted to suit.

The big button keypad features large fonts for easy reading, is voice assisted by a clear English voice confirming which numbers are pressed and the large backlit display also helps to identify names and numbers.

Ran Meyrav European Sales Director for Amplicomms says: “This is a great solution for people who want to live independently providing support for those with hearing and vision loss as well as the elderly and disabled without the hefty fees of service contracts and call centres. This latest model adds to our current product line of telecare including mobile phones.”
