Clarity, a supplier of communications solutions for older Americans, has released the ClarityLife C900, an easy-to-use amplified mobile phone that doubles as an emergency response device. The cell phone, now available for $269.95 online at ClarityProducts.com, is designed specifically for seniors to stay connected with loved ones and the peace of mind to know that help is just the push of a button away.
The ClarityLife C900 is available â€œunlocked,â€ which means it can be used on any GSM network, such as T-Mobile and AT&T.
One of the most talked about features of the ClarityLife C900 is the amplification. The phone can amplify incoming sound up to 20 dB and is one of the first cell phones designed for the millions of seniors with hearing loss. It is hearing aid compatible, features a strong vibrating ringer, a flashing orange LED to signal incoming calls and a helpful flashlight.
Additionally, the ClarityLife C900 features an Emergency Help Button. Located on the back of the phone, the one-touch, heart-shaped button calls and sends text messages to five pre-programmed numbers, such as those of family, friends, neighbors or emergency personnel. It cycles through the five contacts until someone is reached.
Seniors can simply place or receive calls with the ClarityLife C900 by using four oversized buttons on the front of the phone which allow them to easily navigate their top contacts. They also can use a full slide-out keypad with large numbers. Furthermore, the C900â€™s screen is twice the size of a normal phone with magnified text and bright back-lighting.
