World's First Emergency Medical Device Franchise Launches eMed-Alert
Date:8/11/2009

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Aug. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- eMed-ID, the world's first emergency medical device franchise, announced today the launch of eMed-Alert, a next-generation personal assistance voice dialer designed for seniors who may need to call for help in an emergency. With more than 11 million Americans age 65 and older living alone today, eMed-Alert provides seniors a way to maintain their independence.

"As baby boomers age and join the senior population, we're seeing an influx of people living alone. This combined with the fact that more than a third of seniors fall each year, reinforces the need for an advanced alert system that provides peace of mind without the burden of a monthly expense," said Lonnie Helgerson, CEO, eMed-ID Franchising, LLC.

The eMed-Alert system allows the owner to press a single button on a heart pendant or on the system's base to call for assistance in three different ways. First, a siren is activated on the voice dialer console. Then, the personal assistance voice-dialer is enabled to call up to four phone numbers programmed and play a pre-recorded message to each person. Finally, the voice dialer allows each person who receives a call to "listen-in" through the console so they can hear what is happening in the room.

eMed-Alert is available through eMed-ID's franchisee network for $129 with no monthly fees. In the event that family and friends cannot be the contacts, an optional professional monitoring system is available for a small monthly fee of $19.95.

"We've built the eMed-ID business to provide local communities, including people of all ages, with medical services and products that improve the quality of healthcare and save lives," said Helgerson. "eMed-Alert is another example of our commitment to families and their loved ones by giving them a device that prepares them for almost any home emergency."

In addition to eMed-Alert, the company also offers consumers a Personal Health Record (PHR) USB device that will expedite emergency responders' treatment of trauma victims or those unable to communicate by offering immediate access to their personal medical information. eMed-ID helps consumers avoid life-threatening delays in treatment, medical or surgical complications, allergic reactions and medication errors. The portable PHR USB device, utilizing eMed-ID's proprietary software, comes in a variety of options, including wristbands, credit cards and keychains.

The eMed-ID package is $69.95 and includes the PHR USB device, four eMed-ID caregiver cards, two eMed-ID In Case of Emergency (I.C.E.) refrigerator cards and a bound report. In addition, eMed-ID is the only medical identification product that also provides customers with an optional legally-binding healthcare surrogate, HIPAA release and living will. The company also partners with the "Silver Alert" program, modeled after "Amber Alert," to help protect an increasing number of citizens with cognitive impairments.

For those interested in starting their own business, eMed-ID represents an ideal franchise opportunity given the current economic conditions by providing interested franchisees a low-cost of entry. The company is offering candidates the opportunity with a total investment of less than $10,000. Three-year term financing is available to qualified candidates for approximately $38 a week.

Area Representative opportunities are available starting at $29,950 to those interested in recruiting franchisees and owning a minimum protected territory of 200,000 residents. In addition, the franchise provides Veterans a $2,450 discount and a three percent reduction on financing interest.
