Wellcore Announces Automatic Fall Detection and Wellness Monitoring System

Wellcore's personal monitoring system puts ZigBee and pattern recognition to work to help protect the elderly. 

Wellcore customers can wear the waterproof monitor anywhere in the home (ZigBee communication—which is less powerful than WiFi but stronger than Bluetooth—works up to 170 feet through walls and up to 400 feet in open spaces), and continue to wear and use the system when they leave their house. Once outside, the Wellcore system will automatically switch to bluetooth communication with the wearer's cell phone (for now, only small set of cell-phones are supported).
