World's First Emergency Medical Information Franchise Launches GPS Tracking Device
Date:9/16/2009

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Sep. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- eMed-ID, the world's first emergency medical information device franchise, announced today the launch of eMed-Trac, a live instant tracking device designed for people with Alzheimer's, dementia and other cognitive impairments, or children who need to be closely supervised by parents for medical or other reasons.

The eMed-Trac device operates through global positioning satellites and has additional features such as live monitoring from any Internet-enabled computer, geofencing to establish a perimeter, text and email alerts and an SOS call function. With more than 5.3 million Americans living with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia, eMed-Trac can provide an additional measure of safety for these patients and their families.

"In 20 years, the number of Alzheimer's patients is expected to increase to 7.7 million. This combined with the fact that at least 60 percent of these patients have at least one instance of wandering away from home or their healthcare facility or getting lost while driving or walking, establishes a greater need to protect those who suffer from Alzheimer's and other cognitive impairments," said Lonnie Helgerson, CEO, eMed-ID Franchising, LLC. "As a result, we've developed a small device that can ensure greater safety for those who carry it and provide peace of mind to caregivers and family members who may need to locate their loved ones."

Approximately the size of a nine-volt battery, the eMed-Trac device operates with a battery that lasts a week on average and is rechargeable. The device is tracked via an online portal that provides live location updates and can be viewed in three formats - map, hybrid and satellite. The location is mapped by address, as well as by latitude and longitude. In addition, the tracking system can provide a history of where the device has been in a given timeframe. The e
