MedScope Announces Changes to the Medical Alarm Industry, Bringing it into the Cellular Age

U.S.A. (PRWEB) December 16, 2012

As the majority of our country continues to move into the digital age, one segment of the population is often overlooked. While Grandma may not be the first person to come to mind when talking tech, Senior Citizens represent one of the largest demographics poised to take advantage of the technology becoming available in the healthcare industry, more specifically the medical alarm industry.

It’s been roughly 30 years since the popularity of medical alarms took hold of our country. Remember the devices that summon help by simply pressing a button on a transmitter, worn around the neck or wrist? Since then, little innovation has ensued. As more and more Americans do away with their landlines, this poses a problem to the old medical alert systems that require a landline to place the call for help.

After years of procrastination, the medical alarm industry is keeping up with the cellular trend. Some companies, such as MedScope America, now offer a completely wireless, cellular solution to this problem. The new generation of medical alert systems will contact the 24-hour monitoring center without the need for a landline. Users are now able to “cut the cord”, eliminating the concern regarding the wired connection to the telephone line. The cellular capability is completely built into the medical alert system, allowing emergency calls to be made over the cellular network.

The next 30 years should produce much greater innovation from this industry. With GPS technology making its way into medical alert systems, we should soon see some interesting tracking capabilities for Seniors. Let’s hope the trend continues for this all-important service.
