GlobalSat Partners with SecuraTrac to Pioneer New Technology for mHealth

Mobile pendant automates phone calls, SMS notifications when medical emergencies occur

 

LOS ANGELES, CA – GlobalSat WorldCom Corp., a worldwide leader in the development and manufacturing of GPS receivers and electronic communication devices, today announced its latest industry pioneering technology in partnership with SecuraTrac, a dynamic provider of mobile health and safety solutions. The joint effort between the two companies focuses on the release of a new Mobile Personal Emergency Response System (mPERS) called the MobileDefender.

 

In order to meet the demands of the emerging mobile health (mHealth) market, GlobalSat created a hardware solution featuring an SOS button that can be pressed for 3 seconds to send an SOS email or text message to pre-programmed contacts. The MobileDefender combines GlobalSat’s cutting edge mHealth hardware solution with SecuraTrac’s proprietary software platform to create the first 3G mHealth solution that enables seniors to contact emergency help at any time and in any location with just the simple press of a button.

 

The MobileDefender is a small and light (approximately 2 ounces) pendant, about the size of a car key fob that is typically worn with a lanyard around the neck. The MobileDefender can place or receive emergency calls, send SOS messages, and wirelessly connect to personal health sensors including a waterproof fall detector in the form of an adhesive bandage.. Holding the SOS button on the MobileDefender also triggers up to a series of four phone calls to be placed to emergency call centers and contacts. It has a sensitive microphone capable of picking-up clear voices from at least 5 feet, and a high-power speaker making it easy to hear when a call is answered.

 

“Current technology used by many seniors to get help when they fall and cannot reach a telephone or become incapacitated is severely limited in range of use,” said  “In order to contact help using this outdated technology, seniors have to be inside their homes and within a short distance of the base unit speaker that is wired to their home phone line. With the MobileDefender seniors are able to regain their freedom and can get help at home and on the go.”
