Specializing in Personal Distress / Medical Alarms

Distress Aid Medical Alarms was established in 2005 in Peterborough as one of the only alarm companies to specialize in Personal Distress / Medical Alarms. It is the only service we focus on allowing Distress Aid Medical Alarms to perfect our alarm systems so they meet the latest standards of the industry. While other companies may sell a variety of electronic security systems, Medical Alarms are not their top priority. Distress Aid Medical Alarms' goal is to provide the best quality products and services to the people that need them the most.

Small, Personal Company with the Latest Products

Distress Aid Medical Alarms is a small enough company to provide a personal service, yet large enough to provide you with the best products and services available today.
