PLYMOUTH MEETING, Pa., Jan. 11, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Medical Alarm Concepts Holdings, Inc. (OTCBB:MDHI), manufacturer of the MediPendant™, the medical alarm system that allows you to speak and listen directly through the pendant, announced today that it has implemented a specialized marketing program for the Veteran's Administration (VA), beginning with the VA Healthcare system of Ohio.
Medical Alarm Concept's marketing program with the VA includes preferred pricing for the newly developed MediPendant™ 911 product, as well as the ability to order the MediPendant™ 911 at various VA offices within the state of Ohio. MediPendant™ 911 is the medical alert device that provides personal assistance at the touch of a button. There are no telephone numbers to look up and no need to dial the telephone. With MediPendant™ 911's two-way voice technology, simply press the button and communicate with the operator directly through the pendant. This two-way voice feature is rarely seen in other medical alert products. The MediPendant ™ 911 program is a proprietary program, and is available to veterans through their local VA office.
Howard Teicher, CEO of Medical Alarm Concepts™, commented, "We are so thrilled to be working with the Ohio-based VA and implementing this specialized product within their network. It is an honor to provide such a valuable service to the men and women who have served our country. We are looking forward to growing this program and providing this product to veterans throughout the country. It is a huge opportunity for us, in a largely untapped market," added Teicher.
