  • Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill, NC (1888PressRelease) October 30, 2010 - Representatives from Halo Monitoring will participate in this year's Aging Services Convention, explaining to service providers and industry leaders how the innovative myHalo fall detection system can save lives, dollars, and bring peace of mind to seniors and their families.

    Darcel DuBois, Halo Monitoring's Los Angeles representative, along with the HealthTech Marketing group, Halo's marketing partner, will demonstrate the life-saving myHalo medical alarm, which summons help automatically if a senior falls without the need to push a button, during the annual meeting of the American Association of Homes and Services for the Aging. The event is scheduled for October 31-November 3, at the Los Angeles Convention Center South.

    "myHalo allows seniors to preserve their independence and live at home where it's comfortable and familiar by assuring help will be called automatically if they fall, there's no need to push a button," says Chris Otto, CEO of Halo Monitoring. "While myHalo is not a substitute for professional care, there are many situations where seniors are unnecessarily admitted to skilled nursing facilities as a result of fall risks. myHalo can deter or avoid these admissions and extend the seniors stay at home."

    "myHalo provides families peace of mind knowing help is always available for an elderly loved one no matter how far away they live," adds DuBois. Falls are the leading cause of fatal and non-fatal injuries for seniors. Through the use of a small, comfortable, wearable, wireless device, the advanced myHalo system sends an automatic alert in the event of a fall. myHalo is also the first system of its kind that monitors heart rate and temperature allowing family members or designated caregivers, using a secure website, the ability to check on an elderly loved ones' situation without invading a senior's privacy.

    Halo Monitoring is one of 500 companies participating in the AAHSA's annual meeting. Halo Monitoring can be found at the Healthtech Marketing Group, booth #2036.
