Cardiac Network Inc. (CNWI) Announces Deal With Med Mobile to Add Wireless Emergency Communication and GPS Location to Cardiac's Medical Monitoring Services


6/18/2009 9:40:39 AM

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - June 18, 2009) -

Cardiac Network, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: CNWI), a leader in advanced mobile medical monitoring, announced today that it has formed a joint venture with Med Mobile, which will allow Cardiac to begin offering Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) to its patients and HeartOne Club members at www.heartoneclub.com. PERS devices contain a distress button and integrated active GPS system that can activate a "panic" alert to Cardiac's 24/7 monitoring station, provide accurate location tracking and get immediate live assistance when and where it is needed. At the touch of a button, patients can talk directly with the Cardiac Network monitoring station. In turn, Cardiac Network's medical technicians can communicate directly with a patient's doctor or emergency response team.

Features of its new devices include:

--  Built in Cellular Speakerphone. PERS devices enable voice calls to be
    made to numbers stored in speed dialing buttons (e.g. a relative or a
    doctor) or to be received from any caller or from the remote monitoring
    center.
    
--  GPS Location and Tracking. The PERS monitor enables accurate location
    of users in need. If the geofencing feature is used, in the event that the
    person wearing the device wanders outside a specified zone (e.g.
    neighborhood or school area), the system can alert the monitoring center
    and/or a relative or caregiver.
    

"Our patients want to take control of their health and well being," stated Michael Swartzburg, Cardiac Network's President and CEO. "With Med Mobile, we can use advanced wireless technologies to bring peace of mind and deliver real-time medical monitoring, communication and response in the event of an emergency, virtually anywhere, anytime."

Med Mobile is a virtual network operator with world wide network roaming agreements. Cardiac and Med Mobile joint venture will use its wireless network to offer innovative wireless monitoring solutions for improving people's health, safety and quality of life. PERS devices are especially useful for elderly, chronically ill, children (including autistic and developmentally disabled) or lone workers, as well as their relatives and caregivers.
