Mobile Emergency Pendant with Fall Advisory Capabilities

Mobile health and safety solutions provider SecuraTrac announced the MobileDefender Model S (MD-S) as its next generation mobile emergency pendant.

The MD-S is developed on the same platform as the company’s MobileDefender system, while also introducing new capabilities to help ensure worker safety.

Fall Advisory Capabilities

Companies that dispatch employees into unknown environments and situations can rely on the MD-S to relay information about employee locations while providing them with an instant connection to help if an emergency occurs.

In addition to state-of-the-art location technologies, the MD-S also offers a built-in fall advisory capability. The MD-S can detect horizontal and vertical movements, which means that if an employee falls on the job or is knocked over, they do not have to initiate a call for help.

Instead, the MD-S will trigger a call for help automatically. Leveraging existing SecuraTrac cloud-based location technology, the new MD-S adds the ability for central stations to respond to potential accidents.

Enhanced Battery Lifespan

To improve battery lifespan, the MD-S was designed with a new Wake-on SOS feature. This feature allows the device to last over 30 days on a single charge, because the device is off until the SOS button is activated.

This preserves the battery while enabling the device to turn on, locate, transmit its location, and make the emergency phone call after the SOS is activated. 

“There is no other product in the mPERS space capable of preserving battery life with a sleep mode like the MD-S,” said SecuraTrac CEO Chris Holbert. “This plus all of the other great features in one, small package is a game changer. Not only can companies rest assured that they know where their human assets at are in the field at all times, companies and employees can feel empowered about safety.

“Even if an accident occurs, the MD-S can be relied on to create an alert that help may be needed without any action taken by the employee,” Holbert added. “It could be life-saving.”
