KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., June 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Alarm Concepts Holding, Inc. (OTCQB: MDHI), today announced it has signed an exclusive distribution agreement with a Danish company that plans to distribute the MediPendant™ personal medical alarm throughout Denmark and several other Scandinavian countries. The initial order is for 500 units with additional orders expected on an ongoing basis.
"We are very pleased to accept this initial order for the MediPendant™ product from our new Danish distribution partner," commented Steven Beeferman, VP of International Sales and Development for Medical Alarm Concepts. "We have modified the MediPendant™ to provide voice prompts in Danish and our Engineers are currently working on adding additional languages to the MediPendant™ for other contracts currently in negotiations. The MediPendant™ is very flexible, not only relative to adding voice prompts in other languages, but also relative to modifications that will meet the technical standards of international telephone systems. We are very happy to be preparing the shipment for this initial order."
Mr. Beeferman continued, "Our ability to comfort the user of the MediPendant™ via voice prompts is a significant feature advantage of our product. With the MediPendant™, not only can the user speak and listen directly through the pendant to an EMT-trained operator, but they also receive voice prompts directly from their unit, giving them the comfort of knowing that the system has been activated and is connecting to the call center. We believe the ability to speak and listen through the voice prompted pendant is one of the main reasons our sales continue to accelerate."
Medical Alarm Concepts Holdings, Inc. (MAC) develops and manufactures innovative products and practical solutions within the framework of a vast growing marketplace. MediPendant's™ patented two-way voice technology enables the user to speak and listen directly through the pendant no matter where the user may be in and around their home. MediPendant™ service also includes advanced features such as three-way calling that enables the operator to link loved ones directly into the emergency call in real time. Text message alerts are also standard, and are used to inform loved ones that the user has contacted an operator or has requested assistance. A standard PERS system does not enable the user to speak and listen through the pendant, thus limiting them to a small area in their home. There is always the risk that the user will not be heard by the call center operator if they are not within a short range of the base station.
