Medical Alarm Concepts Establishes National Dealer Network(February 16, 2010)
PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa., Feb. 16, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medical Alarm Concepts Holding, Inc. (OTCBB:MDHI), the manufacturer of the MediPendant™, the only fully-monitored medical alarm system that allows you to speak and listen directly through the pendant, announces the formation of a national dealer program consisting of many of the nation's elite security and durable medical equipment dealers. The MediPendant™ Authorized Dealer network now totals over 100+ dealers and continues to grow.
This program offers dealers a medical emergency alert system that is different from all of the PERS (Personal Emergency Response systems) currently on the market. The MediPendant™ is exclusively monitored by LifeSafety Monitoring™, a division of Rapid Response. The call center is unique in the fact that all operators are certified Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs). In addition, LifeSafety Monitoring™ offers the unique ability to stay on the line with the customer until help arrives, as well as a proprietary three-way calling feature that allows a call bridge between the end user, the operator, and the first responder. Bilingual operators are also available. A list of dealers can be found on the product website: www.MediPendant.com. MediPendant™ is also one of the only medical alert programs to offer online purchasing along with free UPS ground shipping, which makes it convenient to service a nationwide customer base.
According to Medical Alarm Concepts CEO, Howard Teicher, "The product was designed to correct the obvious flaw in existing medical alarm technology. The MediPendant™ is different because until now, end users needed to be close to the base unit in order to listen to the dispatcher and communicate the emergency. Medical Alarm Concepts has brought to market, the industry's only monitored, two-way voice, full duplex, audio PERS pendant. Our users can speak and listen directly through the pendant, so they don't need to be near the base unit. They can, in essence, be anywhere in or around their home and still communicate their emergency. Our dealer network has embraced the product and program, and has reported strong anticipated demand. In anticipation of this national roll-out, we have built up our inventory to support the demand."
