Australian medical software company mCare Digital has launched its mCareWatch 241, developed in partnership with US-based Internet of Things (IoT) Solutions provider KORE.

The mCareWatch-241 is the latest advancement in personal emergency alarms, that works with mCare Digital’s smartphone app and is connected to its ConnectiveCare online platform.

The advanced device uses GPS, mobile phone, and WiFi technologies, to access the ConnectiveCare platform and pinpoint the user’s position to less than a few metres.

KORE supported the mCareWatch-241 with its connectivity and provisioning platform that helps connect wearable devices to virtually monitor patients in their homes or healthcare facilities.

KORE EAP sales vice president Richard Tuke said: “Congratulations to mCare on their award-winning innovative health watch.

Its advanced features, including lightweight design and extended battery life, are intended to ensure all users can navigate their daily lives with confidence and ease.

The mCareWatch-241 personal emergency alarm is Dementia Choice Accredited and features the Realtime location finder for connected healthcare, said the company.
