Halo Monitoring to Exhibit Advanced Fall Detection System During Senior Helpers Conference and Vendor Expo in New Orleans

Groundbreaking myHalo medical alarm helps seniors age in place safely

HUNTSVILLE, Ala., Sept. 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Representatives from Halo Monitoring will participate in this year's Senior Helpers Conference and Vendor Expo, explaining to franchisees and staff how the innovative myHalo fall detection system can save lives, dollars, and bring peace of mind to seniors and their families.  You can see for yourself at www.halomonitoring.com.

Halo Monitoring is the exclusive Personal Emergency Response Provider (PERS) of Senior Helpers Franchising, Inc. The agreement means Halo Monitoring's myHalo automatic fall detection system will be available nationwide through all 300 Senior Helpers franchises.

Liz Hardy, the Sales Manager of Halo will be onsite at the Expo to meet the franchisees and promote the myHalo medical alarm. The event is scheduled for September 29 - October 1 at the Sheraton New Orleans Hotel.

"myHalo allows seniors to preserve their independence and live at home where it's comfortable and familiar by assuring help will be called automatically if they fall, there's no need to push a button," says Chris Otto, CEO of Halo Monitoring. "While myHalo is not a substitute for professional care, there are many situations where seniors are unnecessarily admitted to skilled nursing facilities as a result of fall risks. myHalo can deter or avoid these admissions and extend the seniors stay at home."

Through the use of a small, comfortable and wearable wireless device, the advanced myHalo system sends an automatic alert in the event of a fall.  myHalo is also the first system of its kind that allows family members or designated caregivers, using a secure website, the ability to check on an elderly loved ones' situation without invading a senior's privacy.

"myHalo is a family's first line of defense in monitoring the wellness of an aging parent. By working with Senior Helpers, families with aging parents can be assured help is always available and someone is always checking on their loved one," says Otto. "myHalo offers extra protection with 24/7 remote monitoring, and in the event of a fall you never have to press a button. Together, we offer seniors and their families a complete in-home care plan."
