We are extremely confident that TouchPoint Safety, with the vast experience of its principals, will be very successful. We are so pleased to be a part of their team.
King of Prussia, PA (PRWEB) July 29, 2011
Medical Alarm Concepts Holding, Inc. (OTCBB:MDHI), manufacturer of the MediPendant™, the first fully-monitored medical emergency alert system that allows you to speak and listen directly through the medical pendant, announced today that it has signed a strategic partnership agreement with TouchPoint Safety, LLC, to promote the company’s premier rescue alert device, the MediPendant™.
TouchPoint Safety, a Delaware based LLC, was founded by three (3) corporate executives with 50 years combined experience in national distribution, Internet marketing, and security and safety products and services. The company was established based on the fact that its key principals realized the incredible rate at which the personal emergency response system (PERS) industry is growing to provide elderly help and decided to make a sizeable investment into medical alert services while the industry was still in its infancy.
“We are very excited that TouchPoint has decided to utilize our technology,” said Ronald Adams, CFO of Medical Alarm Concepts. “We are extremely confident that TouchPoint Safety, with the vast experience of its principals, will be very successful. We are so pleased to be a part of their team.”
TouchPoint Safety plans to begin marketing the medical alert necklace, MediPendant™, on or before August 15th, 2011, with a full-scale Internet marketing campaign. “We realize that to compete on the Internet a sizable investment is needed, and we plan to spend the money to compete for that business,” said a TouchPoint Safety spokesperson. TouchPoint Safety will follow up with several other campaigns including hospital programs, alternative to assisted living programs, medical representative programs, and several advertising campaigns. In addition, TouchPoint Safety will be a leader in a vast network of national dealers currently working to promote the MediPendant™ product, bringing a sizable and fast infusion of customers to TouchPoint Safety.

The Medical Necklace That Can Save Lives
Primarily utilized as a medical alert for seniors, the MediPendant™ has portable speak and listen technology, allowing for easy contact to a call center of certified EMTs for dispatch in case of a critical situation. This medical emergency alert involves a 3-way conferencing system that enables the emergency support representative to interact with the immobile customer’s family or guardian; instant text alerts are also sent out to keep loved ones up to date on the monitored individual’s status. Individuals are able to walk quite a distance with this medical pendant without feeling limited in or around their own home, unlike out-of-date devices that required individuals to stay close to the emergency base in order to explain their crisis. With a powerful range of 600 feet, this water-proof medical necklace can be used anytime, anywhere. This product allows direct communication to emergency professionals to confirm the proper response required – the police, fire department, ambulance, or a simple answer as to whether the individual is safe or not. With the MediPendant™, consumers avoid the costly mistakes of outdated systems and can help prevent situations that involve the individual’s inability to notify the medical professionals correctly in a timely manner.

As an added value, the MediLok, a combination lock that can be hung on a door knob similar to a realtor’s lockbox, is included with the purchase of the annual or lifetime MediPendant™ payment plan. The MediLok lockbox program gives the customer ability to store a key securely outside the home, providing dispatched personnel accessibility when given the secure code by the call center operator, in order to help prevent damage to the door during assistance or rescue.
