Safety products: SecuraTrac®, a provider of mobile health and safety solutions focused on senior safety, employee well-being and the healthcare industry, announces its next generation mPERS mobile emergency pendant, the MobileDefender™ Model S (MD-S). The model S (MD-S) is developed on the same platform as the powerful MobileDefender™ and introduces new capabilities that will help to ensure the safety of those who use the MD-S and the SecuraTrac platform.

Companies that dispatch employees into unknown environments and situations can rely on the MD-S to relay information about employee locations while providing them with an instant connection to help if an emergency occurs. For construction workers and engineers alone in the field, and those in other fields, the MD-S has a variety of useful applications.

In addition to state-of-the-art location technologies, the MD-S also offers a built-in Fall Advisory capability. The MD-S can detect horizontal and vertical movement, so if an employee falls on the job or is knocked over, he or she does not have to initiate a call for help. The MD-S will trigger one automatically. Leveraging existing SecuraTrac cloud-based location technology, the new MD-S adds the ability for Central Stations to respond to potential accidents.

To improve battery lifespan, the MD-S was designed with a new Wake-on SOS feature. Wake-on SOS gives this small, mobile PERS device the ability to last over 30 days on a single charge because the device is off until the SOS button is activated. This preserves the battery while enabling the device to turn-on, locate, transmit its location, and make the emergency phone call after the SOS is activated.

“There is no other product in the mPERS space capable of preserving battery life with a sleep mode like the MD-S,” said SecuraTrac CEO Chris Holbert. “This plus all of the other great features in one, small package is a game changer. Not only can companies rest assured that they know where their human assets at are in the field at all times, companies and employees can feel empowered about safety. Even if an accident occurs, the MD-S can be relied on to create an alert that help may be needed without any action taken by the employee; it could be life-saving.”
