These devices are offered as an alternative to the Personal Help Button. They can be used to answer incoming calls when you activate Lifeline’s remote answering feature and speakerphone.

Lifeline develops other special assistive devices that give people with neuromuscular disabilities and disorders (like paralysis, Parkinson’s, MS Cerebral Palsy, and ALS) the ability to call Lifeline for help.
