ActiveCare announced the completion of its second generation Personal Assistance Link (PAL) handset, the ActiveOne+.
The device’s GPS combined with cellular triangulation that allows ActiveCare’s CareCenter to locate a member within several meters 24 hours per day, 7 days a week to better respond to any emergency condition. In addition the ActiveOne+ has built-in receptors utilizing Bluetooth technologies to accommodate body worn devices that can communicate vital sign data to the Company’s CareCenter.
Partnering with one of the world’s most advanced technology manufacturers, this generation of PAL is the culmination of over a year of development work. The ActiveOne+ now features wireless technology that make it possible to communicate with futuristic health or safety monitoring devices as they are developed by the Company.
During the development process, ActiveCare conducted market tests and surveys on its first generation ActiveOne PAL receiving feed back from thousands of seniors as well as from its growing membership base. With the development done, the ActiveOne+ is currently being manufactured and will be available in the spring of 2011.
“ActiveCare is truly redefining what it means to age,” said Jim Dalton, chairman and CEO of ActiveCare. The combination of GPS locating and now cellular triangulation allows CareSpecialists to track and dispatch help no matter where the member may be, at home, around town or while traveling. “It’s literally the caregiver that never leaves your side,” continued Dalton.
