Emergency Response Systems (PERS) and Nurse Call Systems, today announced the release of its EMTWatch PERS devices. The EMTWatch paired with SafetyCare’s unique monitoring services will revolutionize the PERS industry.
SafetyCare’s knowledge of PERS, also commonly known as Medical Alarms, and monitoring comes from more than two decades of industry experience. In 2007, the company raised the bar in the Medical Alarm business by establishing the only central monitoring station staffed 24/7 with emergency medical technicians (EMTs); an exclusive offering SafetyCare still offers today.
PERS or Medical Alarms, are comprised of an alarm transmitter worn around the wrist or neck and a base station that plugs in and connects to a phone line. The alarm transmitter, when pressed by its wearer, sends a signal that causes the base station to open its two-way voice capability and dial a monitoring station. The unit’s two-way voice enables alarm responders, or EMTs in SafetyCare’s monitoring station, to assess each emergency by communicating directly with the individual who activated the alarm. Emergency personnel are dispatched as needed for each individual alarm call.
“The single most important link in the PERS operation chain is ensuring that all users consistently wear the transmitter,”
with a Swiss-designed watch with a base unit that resembles a stereo system. The discreet design of the entire system is intended to ensure independence and dignity with style for every person that could benefit from it.
Lightweight and comfortable, the EMTWatch is available as a wristwatch or breakaway pendant. The waterproof device has a 750-foot line-of-site range and 350-foot range in the home. Other features include a LED light, integrated recessed alarm button and replaceable battery. “The idea behind the design and development of the EMTWatch was to provide around the clock peace of mind without the feeling of being tethered to a medical looking device,” says Gulati.
This product is only the beginning of SafetyCare’s impact on the industry. “The system is only the starting point and platform for things to come. Throughout this year and beyond, SafetyCare will be releasing several peripheral devices currently in development that work in conjunction with the base station. None more important than a fall detection device, expected to be released this summer, which will turn the industry on its head,” says Bell.
