MobileHelp (www.mobilehelpnow.com) uses state of the art technology to provide seamless tracking and two-way communicating medical alarm protection to seniors.

In addition to headquarters and sales, the Research Park location will house the company’s ongoing product research, development, fulfillment, and technical support activities.
“We selected the Research Park because of its synergy with FAU,” said Scott Adams, Chairman of MobileHelp. “The Park’s high tech focus puts us right in the middle of a hotbed of talented companies and resources not available anywhere else in the area. We are eager to work with FAU faculty on joint development projects, and we’re planning to establish a formal internship program for FAU students that will identify candidates who can become full time employees upon graduation.”
