New Product Range Released – The Gemini ™ Pendant

Tuesday, February 24th, 2009

geminipendantThe VCI MK9 Carephone ™ Medical Alarm has been supplied to specialised medical alarm monitoring companies for many years, and sets the standard for field reliability and performance of telephone based medical alarms.

Technology moves on and it’s time for a change, so throughout this year VCI will release a totally new range of Australian designed and manufactured medical alarm systems.

Called the Gemini ™ range, the first product we are releasing is a stylish Pendant transmitter. Encouraging clients to actually wear their medical alarm pendant has always been a challenge. Many clients don’t have their pendant with them when they need it most, so anything we can do to encourage them to wear their medical alarm pendant is very worthwhile.

While also significantly reducing overall size and weight, the attractive, ergonomically designed, slimmer, and significantly more powerful Gemini pendant greatly extends the range to the VCI alarm unit. It’s also waterproof to IP67 (International Environmental Protection Standard) and has a very long life lithium battery which does not need replacing.

The Gemini™ pendant has been in development for a year using Sydney industrial design company Design-Edge. We believe it represents the leading-edge in medical alarm pendant design and will greatly benefit the end-users of our equipment.

As well as being supplied with new equipment, the new Gemini ™ pendant can also be used with the MK8 and MK9 Carephone ™ Medical Alarms.

VCI Expands its Market for Medical Alarms

Sunday, February 15th, 2009

For many years VC International Pty Ltd (VCI) has supplied Medical Alarms to specialised medical alarm monitoring companies, the Federal Dept. of Veterans Affairs and the Victorian State Dept. of Human Services. VCI sets the standard for field reliability and performance of telephone based medical alarms.

Leveraging off our significant experience we are now promoting the MK9B medical alarm to the wider security marketplace.

The MK9B alarm consists of a small but powerful pendant alarm transmitter, and a voice-enabled alarm dialer connected to a client’s home phone line.

Other significant advantages of the VCI medical alarm include superior voice performance and a very high degree of lightening and transient protection. Watch triggers, smoke detectors, and special needs triggers, are also available.

Programming and set-up of the MK9B can be done back at the office or at the client’s premises, or remotely from anywhere over the phone. Installation is simplicity itself, a matter of plugging it in, doing a few simple tests, and demonstrating its operation to the client. It’s also very simple for the client to use – a critical factor for a medical alarm.

We are keen to hear from any security providers who are interested in trialing the MK9B product or who are considering entering the medical alarm marketplace. VCI has very long and extensive experience in this field and, as all design and manufacturing is carried out in Australia, we can tailor our products to your particular requirements.
