BOCA RATON, Fla. -- July 19, 2012 -- (PRWEB) -- Acadian Monitoring Services, a division of Acadian companies and a provider of medical, fire and security monitoring for homes, businesses, and individuals, has added a new and innovative medical alert system to its product line.
The MobileHelp device is a portable, cellular-based, two-way voice mobile unit with GPS location services. When activated, the MobileHelp unit detects and reports the user’s location using GPS satellites. The dispatcher is then able to communicate with the subscriber over an AT&T cellular network and dispatch the appropriate authorities based on the subscriber’s actual location.
The MobileHelp system also includes a permission-based interactive online tool which enables caregivers or the subscriber’s loved ones to view the location of the subscriber in real-time, using Google Maps technology. Email notifications with event location maps can be sent to pre-determined responders within seconds after the button has been pushed.
“With the baby boomer generation aging and retiring, yet still being mobile and active, the traditional landline phone-based medical alert system is no longer meeting their needs,” says Blane Comeaux, vice president of AMS. “This device is perfect for the ‘on the go’ senior who can still travel, drive a car and live their day-to-day lives, while still having the extra peace of mind a medical alert system affords them and their families.”
AMS operates three monitoring centers staffed by highly trained professionals that respond to medical and security alerts for thousands of subscribers nationwide. AMS has expanded over the last twenty years to include personal emergency response systems, mobile monitoring, advanced video security systems, access control, security monitoring, and telehealth monitoring.

In the past decade, the company has expanded to include a diverse suite of services in health, safety, and transportation.
