Stanley Healthcare Integrates Apple IPad into the RoamAlert Wander Prevention System

FRAMINGHAM, Mass., August 6, 2010Stanley Healthcare, a business of Stanley Black & Decker, Inc., announces that the Apple® iPad™ mobile digital device can be integrated into the RoamAlert® wander prevention system to provide a mobile user interface for the RoamAlert system.RoamAlert integrates into iPhone

This integration enables users to monitor activity and respond to events in the RoamAlert system from anywhere within the facility. Users see the RoamAlert software exactly as it would appear on any other client computer, and can perform any day-to-day task, such as responding to alarms. This visual information is a major step up from the limited text information available via a typical portable device, such as a pager.

Facilities have great flexibility in deploying this solution. They can piggyback on an existing Wi-Fi network, and the iPad can be wall mounted as a high-quality fixed display, or carried by staff members as they go about their duties.

“The RoamAlert system has always provided a wide range of integration options that enable healthcare facilities to reduce complexity and improve efficiency,” states Gene Borys, Director of Long Term Care for Stanley Healthcare. “Integration with the Apple iPad is another big step towards giving users the information they need to do their jobs and provide better care, no matter where they are.”

The RoamAlert system is an advanced radio frequency system for individual safety, helping healthcare facilities of all kinds protect against wandering, personal duress, asset loss and more. It is part of Stanley Healthcare’ suite of safety and security products for the healthcare industry.
