“Our partnership with MedicAlert is very significant in the growth of eTrak,” said John Harris, CEO of eTrak. “The service that MedicAlert provides gives our users the constant support of an entire emergency network, including 24/7 emergency response and access to emergency medical information records. It is invaluable for the peace of mind it gives eTrak users.”
Using eTrak’s proprietary GPS+ Hybrid Technology, users can follow the movements of loved ones wearing the device – which may be children, adults, aging parents or individuals with special needs – correspondingly, device wearers can reach out to their caregivers by pushing the device’s alert button in the event of an emergency. The small device sends, pinpoint location tracking alerts directly to the users’ smartphone or computer. eTrak’s partnership with MedicAlert also allows protection to be provided even when the user is not near their phone or computer; if emails, messages and phone calls go unnoticed, MedicAlert will contact local authorities to check on the tracked person at any hour of the day or night.
“For us, it’s a perfect partnership,” said Andrew Wigglesworth, CEO of MedicAlert Foundation “MedicAlert GPS + Essential adds an exciting new element to our service line, combining the most technologically advanced GPS on the market today with the most dependable safety network to locate loved ones experiencing an emergency or who may have become lost.”
The partnership also allows police and first responders to have access to electronic health records for the tracked person, alerting them to conditions that may be relevant to their safety.
eTrak’s patented technology combines Wi-Fi mapping, cell tower triangulation and GPS for the most accurate location positioning. It enables a caregiver to draw a boundary circle around multiple addresses, creating a protective perimeter for their loved one. If the 1” x 2” device travels beyond the safety circle, it will automatically send emails and text messages to preprogrammed cellphones and computers alerting them of the device location. eTrak is powered by the Verizon Wireless network
