DHS Health Service is affiliated with SafetySeekERS, dedicated to providing GPS + Traditional Personal Emergency Response Systems.
Help in an emergency is always just a button press away. The EMTWatch is a Personal Emergency Response System (PERS). The stylish and discreet design provides dignity, independence and security to users. This system breaks the stigma of the medical devices used in the industry today. The EMTWatch transmitter can be worn as a wristwatch or a breakaway pendant. This is used in combination with the two-way voice communication base station.
The EMTWatch base station plugs into both an electric outlet and a phone jack. Once plugged in, the base station can be activated via a wireless medical alert transmitter. In the event of an emergency, the user presses the alarm button and is instantly connected to the SafetyCare Response Center staffed 24/7 by certified Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs). The EMTs stay in constant contact with the user, assessing the situation, and dispatch emergency personnel as necessary to get the user the help they need.
The EMTWatch offers stylish protection at a lower monthly price than anywhere else, with all monitoring provided by fully trained Paramedics.
Currently, there are over 5 million people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease in the US. Experts predict the number of Americans diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease will triple in the next fifty years. The disease is a debilitating disorder that robs victims of their memory, cognitive abilities, and personality. As it progresses, people with Alzheimer’s may become increasingly disoriented to time and place.
Wandering is a potentially life-threatening and frighteningly common behaviour seen in Alzheimer’s patients. About 60% of all patients with Alzheimer’s will wander at some point during the course of their disease. Of these, up to 50% will die if they are not found within 24 hours.
Wandering is clearly a dangerous problem for many Alzheimer’s sufferers and those who take care of them. To address this problem, Mobile Health Technologies has introduced a new device using Global Positioning System (GPS) technology that may help keep track of Alzheimer’s disease sufferers.
