Victorian health services trial duress alarm on a watch linked to MePACS
La Trobe Community Health and Eastern Health are about to begin trialling a new duress alarm for staff visiting patients in the community that runs on a Samsung Galaxy Watch and is linked to Peninsula Health’s MePACS personal alarm service.
Called the MePACS Solo, the device has been developed by Samsung Electronics Australia and Vault Intelligence in association with Peninsula Health. Peninsula Health has been running MePACS for the last 30 years and provides personal alarm call services to elderly and disabled people living at home.
