SecuraTrac Reveals Revolutionary Safety Solution Based on GPS & Cellular Technology at CES 2011
Date:1/5/2011

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- One person age 65 and older falls every 2.3 seconds in the U.S., and according to the Center for Disease Control, falls are the leading cause of fatal injury in this age group. They are also the most common cause of nonfatal injuries and hospital admissions for trauma.  The growing ranks of Americans 65 and older - a figure expected to more than double to 89 million by 2050 - have inspired a new technology solution that allows the elderly to remain independent longer, living more affordably and safely in their own homes.  The new solution, called LifeTrac, is now available with a tiny and portable 2.5-ounce device called the MobileProtector and is designed specifically for the senior market by SecuraTrac.

"When it comes to personal safety devices for seniors, most people think of the button you wear on a lanyard or your wrist and push when you fall. The problem with this technology is that it only works when you are near the main phone inside your home and it requires the user to be conscious and capable of making the call for help," said Chris Holbert, CEO of SecuraTrac. "LifeTrac is the only solution available on the market today that offers automated emergency alerts that seniors can carry with them in the house and around town and know they can contact emergency services, family, friends or physicians quickly and easily. Almost as important as the increased safety for seniors, LifeTrac gives families the peace of mind of knowing the device can help them locate an elderly family member if he or she ever gets lost due to dementia or Alzheimer's disease. The family and caregivers have access to a secure website that allows them to locate their loved ones from any computer or mobile phones such as the iPhone and the Android."
