New ActiveCare Technology Enables Seniors to Remain Independent

ActiveHome Monitoring System Ready To Market

SALT LAKE CITY, June 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ActiveCare, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: ACAR) a leader in senior care technology, today announced the introduction of its ActiveHome Monitoring System which has been two years in the making.  This technology, combined with ActiveCare's mobile care service that assists seniors 24/7 no matter where they may be, allows seniors to live an independent yet safe lifestyle with their medical and everyday needs being met 24/7.

"We are excited with ActiveCare's introduction of the ActiveHome Monitoring System which will allow us to better take advantage of an estimated $17 billion market that is emerging over the next ten years," said Jim Dalton, Chairman and CEO of ActiveCare.

Providing a continuum of care and protection, the ActiveHome system is comprised of a combination of smart home, health and well being technology that sends vital data to the Company's CareCenter.  The CareCenter is able to monitor whether a member takes their medication, skips a meal, or is sick in bed.  CareSpecialists act as personal assistants, reminding them to take medication, arranging for grocery and meal delivery as well as other care services.  Through smart home technology members are able to turn out all the lights in the house and lock the door all with the press of one button, placed beside the bed.  Likewise CareSpecialists are able to monitor and control lights, locks and even the stove remotely.

"While every member has different struggles, there is one unifying desire to 'age in place.'  Our products and services allow members to age with dignity, while providing the peace of mind to loved ones and caregivers," continued Dalton.  

ActiveCare's products are designed to enhance members' lifestyles and safety both at home and on the go.  Through the Company's PAL (Personal Assistance Link) technology, CareSpecialists are able to track members' location and provide needed assistance no matter where they may be.   The combination of mobile and in home technology provides a complete level of care, fulfilling the needs of the growing senior marketplace.

ActiveCare, Inc., (www.activecare.com) is the service leader in care for the elderly, disabled or chronically ill providing deserved freedom while allowing members to remain living independently longer.  The ActiveCare solution incorporates sensor technologies that allow a member to be constantly monitored in their own home and on the go.  Inside the member's home, ActiveCare installs sensors that allow ActiveCare's 24/7 CareCenter to monitor their movements and health conditions.  When the CareCenter detects any type of anomaly it can immediately contact the member through a body worn watch device, the ActiveWatch or through the ActivePortal, a video portal located in the senior's home.  This video portal allows live video interaction between the member and the CareSpecialist – providing a personal and bonding experience.  The CareCenter can remotely monitor the member's eating habits with sensors on the stove, refrigerator and cabinets.  The CareSpecialist can also monitor the medications the senior is taking and ensure that they are taking the right medications at the right time – all through ActiveCare's sensor technologies.  In addition, the CareCenter can track vital signs such as heart rate, blood pressure, weight and glucose levels.  It can also monitor how long the member has been in bed or in a chair and can assist in turning on and off lights and locking or unlocking doors.

When the members are on the go away from their home, they can be tracked through ActiveCare's GPS technology.  Through the ActiveWatch or ActiveOne+ PAL members can instantly contact a CareSpecialist with the press of a button or automatically when a fall occurs.
