Wellcore Announces Automatic Fall Detection and Wellness Monitoring System

Wellcore Announces Automatic Fall Detection and Wellness Monitoring System
New Wireless Belt Clip Keeps Seniors Safe, Independent and Always Connected to Caregivers and Family

LAS VEGAS, NV - CES 2010, SILVERS SUMMIT, NORTH HALL, Booth # 2909,– January 6, 2010 -  Wellcore Corporation, a Silicon Valley-based company dedicated to developing solutions that promote wellness, safety and security, unveiled today the most advanced, intuitive and affordable Mobile Personal Emergency Response System (M-PERS) product available for seniors who want to stay safe and live more active, independent lives.  Utilizing motion detection and advanced pattern recognition, the patent-pending Wellcore System offers automatic fall detection, online monitoring, and text-to-speech messaging. The Wellcore System will be available for pre-orders from www.wellcore.com on February 18, 2010 and will be available via firstSTREET beginning in March 2010 with more retail e-commerce sites and stores soon to be announced.

The Wellcore System can distinguish falls from other types of motion with unprecedented accuracy. In the event help is needed, Wellcore automatically sends emergency services and alerts designated caregivers and family. Traditional Personal Emergency Response Systems (PERS) require users to push a button, do not indicate whether the device is being worn, and only work inside the home. The Wellcore product summons help with or without the push of a button, reminds the wearer to put it on, and works anywhere -- including outside of the home -- in conjunction with a Wellcore-compatible cell phone. 


“The revolution that is happening in the caregiving marketplace today has the momentum of the Internet in the 1990s and Wellcore has brought together the expertise to drive the change and innovation needed,” said Mary Furlong, a Wellcore advisory board member and founder of SeniorNet (1986), ThirdAge Media (1996) and Mary Furlong and Associates (2002).  “Fall detection is one of the most important aspects of enabling seniors to live independently and age in place, and there is no better company at fall detection technology than the team at Wellcore.”
