    want to use a cellphone as an emergency response system

    I’m a c5 with a standing chair, which has a “crash bar” on which my cellphone is mounted. It’s a great setup because I always has access to it. I’m able to use it fairly easily. I just flip it open and speed dial, choose a contact, or dial w/the keypad.

    I intended to use this also as an emergency response system as well, but if I was unable, for some reason, to flip open the phone and dial, it wouldn’t help me. However, going to a phone that I could voice dial without having to hit any buttons first wouldn’t work either, because anything I said could be confused w/a command.

    Another option is a Bluetooth earpiece, which would work great if I could hit the button to make a call (the one on mine is extremely tiny ). Anyone know about one w/a larger button?

    The “I’ve fallen and can’t get up” device didn’t work for me.

    Advice, anyone?

    The devices at this website use a magnetic "button" to turn on a bluetooth headset without having to push any buttons.
