SKeeper Wearable Safety Device Works on GSM/GPRS Networks
Tadiran LifeCare has announced the SKeeper, a compact wearable mobile communication and safety device that can be used by elderly people, chronically ill patients, children and lone workers.

Using an embedded Siemens MC55 wireless module and built-in speakerphone, SKeeper can activate cellular voice calls to pre-defined numbers (e.g. a relative or a health professional) or receive calls from anyone. When a call is made to a monitoring center, a pre-defined SMS message can be sent automatically to a relative.

Incoming calls can be screened and/or answered automatically. Most of the product features, such as speed dialing numbers, auto-answering, predefined text messages, etc. are remotely programmable by the monitoring center, or by the users or their authorized relatives via a Web based interface.

SKeeper takes advantage of location based services provided by some operators, so that users can be located in case of need or when outside of a specified zone (e.g. a neighborhood or a school area). In such cases the system sends automatic alerts via SMS messages to the monitoring center and/or to another mobile phone. The company is planning to launch a GPS based system, with higher location accuracy, later this year.

The unit is lightweight and easy to operate. It is wrist or neck wearable and can be carried on a belt or in the pocket. The device works with most GSM/GPRS networks around the world. SKeeper will be available for commercial shipments in the second quarter of 2006.
