MobileHelp® Introduces the Micro

BOCA RATON, Fla., Oct. 29, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- MobileHelp®, a leader in mobile Personal Emergency Response Systems (mPERS) and healthcare technology, just announced the introduction of its newest product: the Micro. The new all-in-one mobile medical alert device offers wearable comfort with its compact size and weight, without sacrifice to technology strengths ? including the company's patented automatic fall detection and advanced location tracking in the event of an emergency.

Due to COVID-19 considerations, more seniors are staying close to home and keeping their distance from family and friends ? who might previously have been relied on for help. According to an article in the New York Times, "About a quarter of people over 65 living independently in their communities are considered socially isolated, and 43 percent of those over 60 report feeling lonely ? and that was before public health officials instructed older people, and everyone else, to stay home." 

As a result, emergency response devices have been increasing in popularity since the beginning of the pandemic as seniors and their loved ones have looked for a solution to provide an expanded safety net for those spending more time on their own.

"The pandemic has created a situation in which our customers' loved ones are more limited in the way they can care for the older adults in their lives," said Rob Flippo, CEO of MobileHelp. "We want them to know that we will continue to bring solutions to the market that allow them to rest easier, knowing that person has access to help ? even if they can't be there."

As an emergency response device, the new Micro offers a series of new benefits to the user: at about 50 percent the size of the company's other portable systems and weighing in at just a little more than two AA batteries, it features a low profile that works well as a wearable option, or is easy to carry in a pocket or purse.

In addition, other features include:

The Micro will be available late in 2020; consumers can visit the company's website for up-to-date product information.
