Why the Assure®

The Assure®: the ‘life saving’ wristband is a must-have personal alarm. Designed to be worn 24 hours a day for a full year without the need to be taken off for recharging, the Assure is ideal for anyone who might need help in an emergency.

Our standard system is designed for single users but a second wristband can be added to protect couples. The Assure gives the wearer outstanding protection throughout their home and garden with these core alerts.

SOS calls

Essential for times when the wearer needs help and can press the buttons on the wristband, such as sudden pain or security concern.

Fall monitor

For severe falls where the wearer is incapacitated after impact.

I’m OK checks (our unique safety net)

The easy way to confirm you are up in the morning and OK before bed. The Assure will call for help if there is a problem.

Cold at home

The Assure base reports on the temperature and if someone is ‘cold at home’ will let chosen people know.

Persistent protection

personal alarms for the elderly

Because many falls happen overnight or in the bathroom

The Assure personal alarm is designed to be worn at all times, unlike other systems. It is waterproof and has a battery that lasts for over one year so there is no recharging.

Because staying connected means that help is always at hand.


Families & friends

personal alarms for the elderly

Family & friends are often the best people to respond to an emergency as they are both local and known.
We designed the Assure to contact them directly with automated calls, emails and texts.

For a small additional charge you can add our professional fallback response centre to deal with alerts when family & friends are unavailable. Just add it to your basket after you have chosen your system.


A simple dashboard

Our dashboard has two uses. It allows anyone, with permission, to set up and manage the Assure and its optional settings from anywhere with internet access

The activity chart shows whether the wearer is at home, that they are wearing their Assure band and even indicates whether they are sleeping well and staying generally active.

Go Anywhere with our smartphone apps

If you have our app on your smartphone, as you go out of range of your home the Assure will continue to offer you the same benefits.

It happens automatically so you don’t have to think about it and uses the phone’s location and data connection to send alerts.

‘Cold at home’ alert
There is a big problem with people getting ill through being too cold at home, sometimes through frugality but often through not realising. Simply set the time window with a safe lower temperature and you’ll get an email alert if is too cold low while the wearer is at home.

Frost setting
Sends an email alert if there is a danger of frozen pipes, even if the home is unoccupied.


Failsafe warning

‘No news’ is not always good news

Sometimes there may be a power cut, internet outage or someone may accidentally knock a plug out of the wall.

The Assure automatically sends an email warning to all administrators if we miss communications from the Assure base station so you can make sure everything is OK.

We will also send a daily ‘All OK’ email to confirm the system is working and the wearer is active.

Why create the Assure?

Karl Gibbs, our founder, had a discussion with his mother, an active ‘solo senior’, who asked if there was a way of confirming she was OK each day.
He decided to look at available solutions that:

  • Were really simple to set up and use
  • Provided protection for a range of eventualities
  • Covered the home & garden
  • Eliminated false alerts due to accidental button presses
  • Truly fitted with a modern, active lifestyle – without the user needing to think about it.

However he couldn’t find anything suitable. Karl thought technology could achieve something far better and teamed up with accomplished engineers, manufacturing experts and award-winning designers.
The concept became the Assure which has now won its own international design awards and has secured runner-up spot in a global competition run by BT for innovation to support ‘Family, friends and community’.
Coming back to where the ideas came from, Karl’s mother is safer now, as are the many satisfied users.

Karl Gibbs, founder

Karl has developed a diverse skillset during his career.

Karl went to college with a view to becoming a civil engineer but instead of pursuing a degree decided to become an actor. Three years of training lead to acting work over the next decade, including small parts in The Bill and Coronation Street and some ‘eclectic’ theatre work too.

When family life beckoned ‘an actors life was no longer for me’ and Karl moved into events organising in the central offices of British Quakers. It was while there that the idea for the Assure first came up in a discussion with his mother when they realised there was not a suitable mechanism to make sure that she was OK.

Karl has also achieved an Masters in Business Administration (MBA) from the Open University.

Karl lives in Saffron Walden with his family and does a lot of his thinking walking, rather too quickly for his miniature Schnauzer, around Audley End Park.
