The MediPendant Personal Medical Alarm
The First Medical Alarm Device That Allows You To Speak and Listen DIRECTLY Through the Pendant
MEDIPENDANT™ Home Medical Alarm and Alert System
MediPendant™ is a medical alarm/alert system (also known as a personal emergency response system) that gives users access to help at the press of a button, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. It is the first monitored medical alarm on the market today that allows the user to speak and listen to the operator DIRECTLY through the pendant.
There are many medical alarm companies with many different types of emergency medical equipment, so do your homework. If you're thinking about getting a medical alarm for you or someone you care about, be sure to ALWAYS ask the following questions:
- Can I speak and listen to the operator through the pendant?
- What happens if I hit the button when I am outside? Can I speak to the operator from outside my home?
- If I am showering or bathing, can I use my pendant/medical alert bracelet? If the door is closed, will I be heard?
- Do the call center operators have EMT (emergency medical technician)training?
- Will the call center operators stay on the line with me for as long as I need them?
The answers to these questions should always be YES!

Over the past two quarters our business has turned the corner with strong growth, allowing us to reach positive cash flow. Because this growth is based on high quality recurring monthly revenues, we believe the positive operating cash flow we will report beginning in the March 2013 quarter will be sustainable moving forward."
