Skyguard the personal safety service for lone workers at risk announce the launch of MySOS Mandown

Skyguard, the personal safety service for lone workers and at risk individuals announce the launch of MySOS Mandown, Europe's smallest personal safety device fitted with a sensor which automatically raises an alarm to Skyguard's Incident Management Centre in the event of a fall or sudden impact.

Identical in design to the MySOS, the Mandown variant is equipped with all of the features of its predecessor, but comes complete with a Mandown sensor. The feature is vital if the user falls, suffers from a medical condition or is physically assaulted and knocked to the floor and may not be able to raise an alarm manually.

Upon alarm activation, the information and location of the user will be transmitted to Skyguard's UK based, 24 hour manned Incident Management Centre. From there, Skyguard's professionally-trained Controllers will listen in, using the device's two-way audio, assess the situation quickly and expertly and summon the right emergency response direct to the user. All audio and actions are digitally recorded... vital should the incident go to litigation.

The Mandown function can be permanently enabled or disabled, or manually activated, depending upon each user's requirements.

Fully certified to BS8484:2011 - the British standard for lone worker device services and audited and approved to ACPO's ‘Secured by Design' award, MySOS Mandown replaces Skyguard's rugged GEMshield personal safety alarm which was launched in 2009 to much plaudits and praise. The GEMshield soon became the device of choice and was used by over half the UK's Police forces to protect those in their care. It was also accredited to the highest possible industry standards.
