Testimonials from accesSOS Users

accesSOS benefits everyone. I've been in situations when I was hiding from an intruder. Even whispering was too loud to get help.

Cara, New Mexico

accesSOS is life changing for my sister-in-law because she is non-verbal and accesSOS gives her a voice in an emergency.

Elena, San Francisco

accesSOS is very easy to use. Pictures describing the type of the emergency, are very clear and self-explanatory.
