After seven years of providing mobility solutions for the elderly and physically disabled, 101 Mobility has added a new line of products outside of their traditional mobility equipment offerings by Philips Lifeline.
Wilmington, North Carolina, May 19, 2015 (Newswire.com) - Through Philips Lifeline, 101 Mobility will now be able to help their customers lead more independent lifestyles with emergency care only a button away. Patented in 1974, Lifeline, the industry founder of Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS), has served more than 7 million customers nationwide. Lifeline has almost ten times the number of subscribers than the next competing PERS provider. 101 Mobility is excited to bring customers added value and at-home safety with the new product.
“Lifeline’s dedication to developing cutting edge technology, their sophisticated response centers, and their support for their dealer network are unparalleled in the industry,” said national account manager for 101 Mobility, Wes Barefoot.

101 Mobility’s goal of helping improve the lives of people with disabilities, the chronically ill, and seniors aligns with Lifeline’s mission. “The (PERS) offered by Philips Lifeline is a perfect complement to what our business is centered around,” Barefoot continued. “Helping the elderly and individuals with physical disabilities remain independent in their own homes.”
For customers, the new products will help give an affordable, non-committal solution that offers peace of mind for those aging-in-place or living with certain disabilities. For 101 Mobility franchisees, Lifeline will open a new channel for customer acquisition while creating longer-lasting customer relationships. 101 Mobility is the first access and mobility equipment provider to offer the Lifeline service.
“Our goal is not to simply provide a piece of equipment,” Barefoot said. “Our goal is to become a trusted partner to our customers through a dedication to customer service and support.”
Lifeline by Phillips is available via 101 Mobility stores across the country. Interested readers may visit our store locater and call to find out if their nearest store offers personal emergency response systems by Lifeline.
