Track Elderly Family Members Location Online With New Mobile Medical Alert Device


February 5, 2018 NORTHVILLE, MICHIGAN - Medical Care Alert, a leading national provider of personal emergency response systems for seniors, today announced the release of its new HOME & AWAY PRIMO mobile medical alert system. The HOME & AWAY PRIMO is a wearable medical alert device that can summon help at the press of a button.elderly medical alert system with GPS and Wi-fi

Unlike a traditional medical alert system, the HOME & AWAY PRIMO uses cellular/GPS/Wi-Fi location services to locate the user’s location by the company’s Emergency Response Monitoring Center. Caregivers can also locate the user using the PRIMO’s “Track & Find” web portal. The HOME & AWAY PRIMO is small, shower-safe, and has up to 4 days battery life.

"Today's older Americans live very active lifestyles" said Bryan Stapp, President of Medical Care Alert. "They want 24/7 protection everywhere they go. Their children sometimes need to check on their whereabouts. The HOME & AWAY PRIMO system gives them that peace of mind."

Not Your Grandmother's Panic Button

Unlike traditional medical alert systems that only work inside the home, the new HOME & AWAY PRIMO system follows the user anywhere they go in the USA with AT&T Wireless cellular coverage.

The HOME & AWAY PRIMO is designed for younger, active seniors who still work or travel. The small 1.9 ounce pendant combines GPS location services, 2-way cellular voice communication, and optional Automatic Fall Detection. The system summons help at the press of the button, providing the exact GPS location of the user to dispatch a neighbor, family member or EMS emergency services as needed.

Automatic Fall Detection Features

Over one-in-three seniors fall annually, with 43 percent of these falls occurring outside the home according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control. As the population ages, the number of falls and the costs to treat related injuries are both likely to increase.

Automatic fall detection on the HOME & AWAY PRIMO can summon help if the user is unable to press the emergency help button themselves. Using internal sensors and cloud-based algorithms, the system compares the fall activity detected by the pendant with thousands of actual fall patterns to determine if an actual fall occurred.

"The PRIMO pendant can tell the difference between an actual fall and someone sitting down too quickly," said Stapp. "This helps prevent false alarms, common with the older "man-down" style fall detectors".

HOME & AWAY PRIMO medical alert systems start at $36.62 a month, including free priority shipping and an EMS Safety key storage Lockbox. Ordering information available at www.MedicalCareAlert.com.
