Using new tech to assist in senior care: Securatrac

Boot Camp feature for Monday, June 27, 2016

Using new tech to assist in senior care.    I’m Fred Fishkin with BootCamp, your Techstination for gadgets and gear.        I’ve fallen down and I can’t get up….is an ad slogan most of us of heard many times over the years.   Today, there’s new technology being employed in gadgets that enable seniors and others to get help in an emergency.   Securatrac’s new MobileDefender Model S will have the ability to get help even if the wearer is unable to push a button on the device.  CEO Chris Holbert….

“So the person, whether they’re a lone worker in an oil and gas environment or a senior in a healthcare situation, if they were to fall and remain motionless for a period of time after that, there would be an automatic call to the emergency response center.  So there’s no need to push the SOS button.”

SecuraTrac sells through a variety of health care providers and security companies.  Bay Alarm Medical is among them.   The new model is slated to be available in the coming weeks.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.    I’m Fred Fishkin.
