AFrame Digital, Inc., a provider of advanced mobile health and safety solutions, announced today that it is one of 32 companies selected from hundreds of candidates to present at the exclusive Mid-Atlantic Venture Association (MAVA) Capital Connection ’11. The selection of AFrame Digital follows the receipt earlier this spring of CTIA Wireless Association’s Emerging Technology (E-Tech) Award, which recognized the company’s MobileCare Monitor™ service platform for its innovation, functionality, technological importance, implementation and overall “wow” factor. Launched commercially in 2010, AFrame Digital now has customers in senior living, rehabilitation, and home settings across the nation.
“Our enterprise customers need more than PERS/panic buttons and automatic fall detection to help care for seniors and patients with chronic health conditions,” says Founder and CEO Cindy Crump. “MobileCare Monitor creates a virtual safety net based on continuous, nonintrusive monitoring that detects subtle changes in each patient’s unique health and wellness profile. For caregivers, the system’s data analysis and exceptions-based reporting helps prioritize their efforts without data overload, with real-time status reports and automated alerts over mobile devices. These tools help caregivers take a more proactive stance when attending to at-risk individuals.”
We had an outstanding pool of early and expansion stage companies apply to MAVA’s Capital Connection ’11. Those that have been selected represent some of the most interesting emerging technology solutions and product companies today,” said Julia Spicer, MAVA’s executive director.

We look forward to presenting at MAVA Capital Connection ’11, and sharing how we successfully meet the needs of seniors and other at-risk populations with state-of-the-art mobile health and safety monitoring.”
