WOODCLIFF LAKE, N.J., Aug. 03, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Powerfleet, Inc. (Nasdaq: PWFL) announced that its operating subsidiary, Pointer Telocation Ltd. (Pointer), has expanded its Internet of Things (IoT) technological services to Magen David Adom (MDA) for more than 800 defibrillators country-wide throughout Israel. After a successful initial deployment, the solution will be applied at additional municipalities throughout Israel. MDA plans to install its defibrillators with Pointer by Powerfleet technology in more public and commercial spaces such as parks and high-rise buildings in order to save more lives.
MDA is Israel’s national rescue organization for pre-hospital emergency medical services and blood services. The organization manages a fleet of ambulances and other emergency vehicles to provide advanced medical assistance. The solution from Pointer by Powerfleet enables MDA to place defibrillators with the capability of remote control throughout the country to save lives. It is intended to give paramedics additional time to arrive at the site and provide more sophisticated medical support.
“We are delighted and proud to be a part of MDA’s success in saving lives,” said Ilan Goldstein, CEO of Pointer. “This additional order signifies the value and results MDA has received since implementing our technology, not only to ensure life-saving equipment is available to more locations but to also help the organization make better informed decisions about their operations.”
With Pointer by Powerfleet’s solution, any person, even without medical training, can call MDA’s emergency 24-hour call center to receive immediate guidance and directions to the nearest defibrillator. In addition, the smart device is synchronized with the organization’s information system, enabling call center representatives to remotely open the defibrillator iron case and activate a siren and flashing lights that make it easier to find the defibrillator. Using the defibrillator is critical in the first few minutes after a cardiac event. Therefore, it is important that it will be available and in a close distance to the person experiencing the event without needing to wait for an ambulance or arriving at a hospital.
