Aerotel Medical Systems has received the US FCC certification, as well as Industry Canada (IC) certification, for its location-based personal alert system, GeoSkeeper.
The approvals pave the way for Aerotel to start offering the GeoSkeeper system in the US and Canada. The system is already being sold in other markets around the world, including Israel, Europe, Asia-Pacific and South America. As a result, Aerotel has started negotiations with several security and medical alert service providers in North America in order to start offering the system to the growing market of medical alert and personal security in the near future.
The GeoSkeeper personal safety and location system is specifically designed to provide peace of mind for elderly, chronically ill, children or lone workers, as well as their relatives and caregivers. Fitted with a distress button and integrated active GPS system, it can activate a warning signal when needed, provide accurate location tracking and send an assistance request to caregivers.
