Blurring Vision, Vague Hearing, Trembling Hands, Weakening memory and deteriorating brain functions - traits common among Senior Citizen. Senior Citizen require attention and connectivity. So, they too deserve a mobile phone that helps them remain connected with their loved ones and a device which takes care of the afore-mentioned problems. Few good companies are spending their time and energy towards addressing this audience. Just5 is one such company.
Just 5 has launched a mobile handset that has large buttons, loud speaker, loud audio, flashlight, emergency response system, long battery life and easy-to-use unlock button. Just5 J509 is a compact mobile phone that offers the following features:
- Big Buttons that are quite handy and can be viewed even without eye-glasses.
- Ease of Operation: The menu system is very simple that every function can be accomplished with maximum 3 clicks.
- Personal Emergency Response System: Provided to take care of emergency situations. Provided as a big button the rear-side of the mobile, when pressed the device will start dialing five pre-programmed phone numbers and will keep trying until one of them answers. Once connected, the phone will switch to loud-speaker (hands-free) mode. In addition, the device will sound a loud alarm to attract attention towards the senior citizen. When someone is in medical emergency, this is a life-saver!

Couple of weeks ago, we discussed about another senior citizen phone called Munoth S5. We did discuss about this in facebook too. We found a physical unlock/lock button as the only thing missing from Munoth S5. Just5 takes care of this!
We believe these 2 phones are really useful devices for senior citizen. What's your take?
