LAS VEGAS – January 5, 2016 – For active seniors, MobileHelp®, a leader in mobile Personal Emergency Response System (M-PERS) solutions, is featuring the newest version of its Mobile Device – 3.0 – to work in conjunction with its cellular DUO System. DUO is the industry’s most complete medical alert system, supporting automatic fall detection and online health applications without the need for a landline in the home.
Designed to offer nationwide mobility and extend the audio benefits of the existing MobileHelp home base station, the new Mobile Device features voice-guided prompts for customers as they interact with the device. It will also feature geo-fencing (Q4 2016) to alert designated care providers when the customer leaves or returns to a predefined location.
In addition to the new features, Mobile Device 3.0 provides customers with a lighted emergency button and the ability to remotely activate the device. Compatible with the other MobileHelp family of devices – its Fall Button™, Pendant, Wrist Button, Wall Button and Cellular Base Station – the Mobile Device ensures customers have access to emergency protection both at home and away from home.
“We know that in the US alone, more than 12 million seniors will experience a fall in any given year – and that more than 40 percent of those falls will occur outside of the home,” said Robert Flippo, MobileHelp CEO. “We designed the Mobile Device as part of our Cellular DUO System to provide our customers with the extra protection they need when they are out and about, to give them the freedom they want.”
Operating on AT&T’s nationwide cellular network, the Cellular DUO System combines the flexibility of a wireless device with the security of a PERS system: A single press of the Wireless Device button immediately sends an alarm to a 24-hour staffed emergency call center where an operator will have instant access to the user’s basic medical history, location and emergency contacts. The Mobile Device 3.0 is also available as a Solo System.
The MobileHelp Cellular DUO System includes the Mobile Device with mobile pouch and portable cradle charger, a cellular base station, and choice of two waterproof neck pendants and/or wrist buttons which can be worn at all times.
