WELLINGTON, New Zealand and HOLON, Israel, September 13, 2011 /PRNewswire/ --
Aerotel Medical Systems, a world leading manufacturer of modular, mobile and home-based telemedicine and telecare solutions, and Elemental Technologies, a leading Australasian provider of solutions for personal safety, aged care and healthcare, have launched a new personal safety service in New Zealand and Australia.
Based on Aerotel's highly successful GeoSKeeperpersonal safety and location system, the new 24 hours by 7 days a week service, operated by Elemental Technologies, enables finding the accurate location and providing immediate assistance to elderly persons or people with dementia, offering users and family members safety and peace of mind. GeoSkeeper will be distributed in New Zealand and Australia by Elemental Technologies.
GeoSKeeper is a wrist-worn mobile GPS-based personal safety device. It offers users and their families a new level of safety and peace of mind using its mobile phone technology, built-in speakerphone and active GPS receiver. When the user wanders outside a specified zone (eg neighborhood or school area), or enters a dangerous area, the system sends automatic alerts via txt messages (SMS) and email, including GPS location data to a monitoring center as well as to a relative or a caregiver. GeoSKeeper enables two-way voice calls and is fully programmable over the air via a user-friendly web-based portal.
"We have formed a partnership with Elemental Technologies to bring our personal safety solutions to the Australia and New Zealand markets," said Ofer Atzmon, Vice President for Business Development and Marketing at Aerotel Medical Systems. "This agreement is another step in our global market expansion."
"After conducting a comprehensive search, we have found GeoSKeeperTM to be the most sophisticated and well established personal safety device on the market," said Patrick Rogers, CEO and Co-founder at Elemental Technologies. "The combination of mobile phone and GPS technologies grants freedom to the wearer to travel away from home or work and confidence to their caregivers that they can be located and communicated with, anytime and anywhere."
