Los Angeles, CA, July 23, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- SecuraTrac, a dynamic provider of mobile health and safety solutions focused on protecting children, seniors and employees, announced today the development of a new technology based on its award-winning mobile app, SecuraFone®. Developed in conjunction with Vital Connect, which is poised to become the leader in next generation biosensor and secure cloud technologies, SecuraFone Health can alert doctors, caregivers and family in real-time when an unexpected health event occurs.
SecuraFone Health will benefit consumers, patients, doctors and caregivers by detecting falls, caregiver-defined heart rate changes, and respiration rate changes as well as other key vitals. When an unexpected change is detected, the app will send a real-time alert including information about the user’s location and other key details to designated contacts.
SecuraFone Health employs a sensor worn by the user on his or her chest or back to monitor vitals 24-hours a day. Patches are water resistant, can be worn in the shower, and are worn for 2 - 3 days before needing to be replaced. They have up to a 50-foot communication radius for sending notifications to the user’s smartphone.
“We are excited about the potential of the SecuraFone Health app. We believe it will revolutionize the mobile health marketplace,” said SecuraTrac CEO Chris Holbert. “Doctors, caregivers and family members will now not only be able to monitor and receive alerts related to the whereabouts of their patients, children or aging parents, but also will receive alerts related to that person’s vitals in real-time. The monthly service is tied to a 24/7 emergency response center with trained healthcare staff, and so we expect that our mobile health and safety innovation will greatly reduce response times for those in need of emergency assistance as well as improve the overall care received by the user.”
“Vital Connect is pleased to announce its collaboration with Securatrac on the ground-breaking SecuraFone Health solution,” said Bill Brennan, Executive Vice President of Vital Connect. “As an integral element of the SecuraFone Health solution, our intelligent wireless biosensor will provide users an unprecedented sense of security while providing doctors, caregivers, and loved ones with increased peace of mind.”
The SecuraFone Health app is scheduled for release later this year. For more information visit www.securafone.com.
