New mPERS Technology Offers Safe Independence

Following a stroke, mobility and dexterity can be drastically reduced and the risk for additional strokes, falls and other critical health side effects increases. Returning to the activities of daily living (ADL) can take time. One of the biggest hurdles to overcome is the fear of facing another medical emergency alone. Stroke survivors and survivors of other potentially life-threatening medical events often worry about not being able to reach help; however, new technology is solving this problem. 

The mobile Personal Emergency Response System (mPERS) industry is a rapidly developing new branch of traditional PERS focused on meeting the needs of seniors and people with serious medical conditions, like stroke survivors. Current technology used by many people to reach help when they fall or have a medical emergency is severely limited in range of use. In order to contact help using this type of emergency alert button, users have to be inside their homes and within a short distance of the base unit in order to hear the responder.

In today’s fast-paced world, people are not content remaining in their homes living life in fear. In addition to requiring PERS technology that allows them to maintain the level of mobility they were accustomed to before the stroke, survivors also require solutions that are multi-functional, simple to use and “smart”.

A new suite of mPERS interface with each other to form the most comprehensive personal health monitoring and notification system available for use at home or in the yard, at a store, on the golf course, or anywhere a medical emergency or accident may occur.

Help can be reached automatically, even in situations where the user is unable to press a button or dial a phone. And, they now can interface seamlessly with a variety of personal health. Automated alerts triggered by pre-set levels for vitals such as respiration and heart rate, long periods of inactivity or falls eliminate the potential for a person with an mPERS device to be unable to call for help due to incapacitation. When an unexpected change is detected, a real-time alert including information about the user’s location and other key details to designated contacts.

Greater product variety allows users to choose the best product to fit their lifestyle needs and, for the first time, technology can aid in reaching family, friends, caregivers or emergency responders anywhere, anytime.
