KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., April 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Medical Alarm Concepts Holding, Inc. (OTCQB: MDHI.PK), today announced several significant feature and function enhancements to its patented, MediPendant™ personal medical alarm system. The MediPendant™ is different from most medical alarms on the market today because it allows for two-way voice technology, enabling the user to speak and listen directly through the pendant no matter where the user may be in or around their home. Additionally, the Company is announcing its first international sales, and is providing its investors with an update on the MediPendant™ marketing programs.
Several new features have been added to the product, the most important of which is a significant increase in battery life when the device is in standby mode. The MediPendant™ can now operate for a year and a half on a single battery, due to the addition of a new sensor technology that more quickly places the device into battery-saving standby mode. Additional important enhancements to the product are: improved waterproofing, which allows the product to be rated to a higher standard of water-resistance, and a new soft-touch emergency button with a 'click' confirmation, so that there is no second-guessing if the button has been activated.
"We have added some important enhancements to the MediPendant™. These enhancements further improve our advanced functionality, and place us even further ahead of other personal medical alarm devices," commented Ronnie Adams, President of Medical Alarm Concepts. "We have also completed work on the implementation of a new software platform that will allow even faster response times when customers need help. Our marketing efforts for the MediPendant™ are on track and shipments are accelerating at a rapid pace. While it is a very busy time for all of us at the Company as we begin our MotorBooster™ radio promotion in more than two do
