PHILADELPHIA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jul 30, 2020--

Medical Guardian, a leading provider of innovative medical alert systems, has officially introduced its newest offering to their product line — the Mini Guardian. This comprehensive, fully integrated wearable technology was designed to meet all of your needs in a single, small, and stylish button. Challenging the Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) industry stereotypes and revolutionizing how older Americans age independently by offering attractive, simple-to-use safety for everyday life.

At ½ the width of other portable systems and weighing little more than a pencil, the Mini Guardian is small enough to fit inside your pocket while also offering even more safety features than your typical all-in-one system. Giving it a low profile that addresses and overcomes what’s still the most common objection to personal safety — style — and equipping users with the latest communication & tracking technology on the Nation's fastest network. All while simultaneously providing aging adults the opportunity to choose a shade that compliments their own personal style by offering the Mini in 3 neutral colors: white, silver, and black.

“We’ll continue to be driven by innovation as our motivation in bringing the highest level of comfort and lifesaving assistance to those we protect Nationwide.” —Geoff Gross, Medical Guardian’s President & CEO

As personal safety for seniors becomes a concept that’s increasingly critical to consider as the 65+ demographic is slated to account for 20% of the population by the 2030s — it will likely become normalized to prioritize access to 24/7 medical monitoring. This is especially paramount as 90%+ of these older adults will reportedly have one or more chronic health conditions that could become a catalyst for senior falls, according to The Institute on Aging. Paving the way for PERS devices to quickly become recognized as a small investment that could potentially save $30,000+ in fall-related medical expenses and equip aging adults with the emergency assistance they need while also decreasing their risk for complications stemming from delayed treatment.

Mini Guardian’s Features Include:

HD Speakers for Crystal Clear Communication. Mini Guardian’s built-in HD, 78-decibel speakers with background noise canceling functionality allow for loud and clear communication with emergency operators.

Easy-to-Press Button for Older Hands. In any emergency, connecting older Americans with the help they need is simple thanks to Mini Guardian’s soft and easy to press help button.

Reliable, Nationwide Cell Coverage with High-Speed 4G LTE. Mini Guardian provides fast, 24/7 wireless access to help. The best part? Older adults don’t have to subscribe to an existing provider—the cost of high-speed, 4G LTE cellular service is on us!

Water and Dust-Resistant. 80% of all falls happen on slippery surfaces—like in the bathroom—which is why Mini Guardian has a waterproof rating designed specifically for use in the shower or bath.

Fall Detection Capabilities & Cancellation Feature. The Mini’s Fall Detection Capabilities ensure our monitoring center is contacted immediately, even if users cannot push their button* and includes a cancellation feature for false alarms. Helping older adults get the help they need after a fall without even having to request it!

Extended Battery for Life On the Go. With a better battery life than other mobile medical alert systems, Mini Guardian can go for up to 5 days before needing a recharge so older adults can do more—and worry less.

Advanced Location Tracking. Using GPS with WiFi assist for added accuracy, Mini Guardian’s location tracking capabilities will pinpoint the user’s location in the event of an emergency—no matter where they are.

Elevated Color Options. The Mini Guardian is available in 3 neutral colors — white, silver, and black — giving aging adults the opportunity to choose a shade that compliments their own personal style!
