Discover Ascom & two10degrees Wide Area Duress Solution

August 16, 2018
Ascom Myco along with two10degrees’ GAP Guardian application is a Wide Area Duress solution that provides an effective way to raise an alert in a dangerous situation or personal threat to healthcare staff.

Violence against healthcare workers is on the rise, until now, mechanisms to protect them remain inadequate [1]. Healthcare professionals are often at risk when they care for patients; with safety and security further compromised where patient interaction is outside of the hospital environment.   Ascom has a long, proud history of providing wireless duress systems to healthcare facilities across Australia and currently has over 200 systems deployed. The partnership with two10degrees and the integration of their GAP Guardian lone worker application on the Ascom Myco™ has extended the functionality by extending coverage outside facilities to the community at large.

Two10degrees pride themselves on building and integrating innovative software, hardware and communication solutions that help organisations around the world improve safety, manage risk and improve productivity. The Global Alerting Platform (GAP) is a cloud-based communications platform for building and integrating satellite, cellular and IoT messaging applications that connect, protect and monitor workforces and assets.

The two10degrees lone worker application on the Ascom Myco™ offers an emergency alert solution for healthcare workers in the community. Enabling wide-area mobile duress functionality with configurable motion detection, GPS tracking, threaded message exchange and voice for check-in, the two10degrees application is now part of Ascom’s technology partner family natively integrated into the Ascom Myco™.

“Partnerships between companies that produce complementary technologies are particularly beneficial to the healthcare community. We at two10degrees are proud to join forces with Ascom and deliver a solution that not only provides that extra level security to staff but makes them feel safe and protected” commented Paul Weiss, Director of Business Development and Alliances at two10degrees.

Feargal O’Farrell, Managing Director at Ascom Integrated Wireless “When looking at a prevention plan and ensuring the security of your staff we believe that reliability and consistency are essential. Additionally, we believe fit-for-purpose handsets that can raise multiple types of alarms are extremely beneficial. Our combined offering will deliver a personal alarm device that is fit-for-purpose with coordinated emergency response, location accuracy, and post-incident reporting.”
