Catcher Holdings Lands Contract for Deployment of EMS Applications in Rural Areas

December 13, 2007 - Catcher Holdings Inc., a maker of ruggedized integrated mobile computing and WiFi communication platforms, together with Response Data Engineering, an emergency medical services patient care technology company, today announced a $265,000 purchase of the CATCHER command and control platform that will be deployed in rural areas where EMS technicians are often faced with communication challenges.

Response Data Engineering has designed a comprehensive software suite that, when loaded on to the CATCHER, provides systematic management of an entire response for practically any situation. EMS personnel armed with a CATCHER containing this innovative software will be able to receive step-by-step procedural instructions with only a few taps on the CATCHER’s touch screen panel. The companies said this solution not only provides thorough instruction, but also provides contact to hospital personnel via a WiFi video link in real time.

The companies said the advanced biometric and GPS features of CATCHER and the EMS software will combine for life-saving communication in emergency situations.
