Company is working on additional medical devices to work in conjunction with its MPERSENS
NORTH BRUNSWICK, N.J. – VEESAG launched an MPERSENS smart watch that serves as a mobile personal emergency response system this summer, after receiving Federal Communications Commission approvals in July.
The company has also changed its name from VEESAG Health Inc. to VEESAG Mobile to better reflect the expansion of its product space.
“The device, along with the VEESAG portal, facilitates better administration of an individual’s health, thereby providing security and peace of mind,” said VEESAG CEO Raj Sadhu.
The MPERSENS includes medicine/task reminders, emergency buttons, remote monitoring, fall detection and push notifications. Sadhu said what sets it apart are the additional sensors for watch orientation, magnetic field strength, UV intensity, proximity, ambient light, temperature and humidity. It also collects data and uploads it to the cloud, making it accessible from any connected device.
The MPERSENS acts as a hub when worn on the body—it can be worn on the wrist, or attached to a belt loop.
“As long as it’s on the body it will work properly,” Sadhu said.
With the recent FCC approval, Sadhu said the watch has been deployed globally, and it’s been certified for use on both the Sprint and Verizon cellular networks. It’s being used by people with dementia, Alzheimer’s or Parkinson’s, as a way for family members or caregivers to monitor them.
Sadhu said VEESAG, which has been making smart watches since 2010, is currently working on additional medical devices to work in conjunction with the watch. The company is developing its Connected Car platform, which recently received a patent from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office for a system that monitors a car, the health of its driver and connects to a home automation server.
“When we look at something happening and there’s no solution, we come up with a solution,” said Sadhu. “That’s our strength.”
