LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA, Dec. 02, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MetAlert, Inc. (OTC: MLRT), a pioneer in location-sensitive health monitoring devices and wearable technology products for remote patient monitoring, announced today that it has engaged Joseph Gunnar & Co., LLC as its financial advisor. As the Company articulates its growth strategy to the investment community, Joseph Gunnar will advise on potential financing alternatives and acquisitions as well as plans to up-list to a national exchange.

Patrick Bertagna, MetAlert CEO, commented on this development by stating, “MetAlert is approaching the inflection point of its growth curve by its ability to sell a multitude of products and services to a broader audience, which will result in greater revenue per user (“RPU”), and we are thrilled to align with a proven advisor like Joseph Gunnar in our quest to maximize shareholder value.”

Mark Peikin, CEO of Joseph Gunnar’s Bespoke Advisors practice, said, “MetAlert’s vision and the ability to leverage its extensive intellectual property portfolio to bring important technology solutions to the global marketplace is compelling. I am excited to focus the full force of the elite financial and business development teams at Joseph Gunnar on MetAlert’s financing and operational goals.”

On November 29, 2022, the company announced its RoomMate initiative. With RoomMate, MetAlert is offering a wall-mounted 3D sensor, which provides critical alerts and includes anonymized image and sound capturing technology, and can be utilized for two-way communication; RoomMate appears to be a gamechanger for those at risk of falls. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, each year three million older adults are treated in hospital emergency departments for fall injuries, and over 800,000 of such persons require hospitalization, most often because of a head injury or hip fracture. The World Health Organization has determined falls to be the second leading cause of unintentional injury deaths worldwide with more than 650,000 individuals estimated to die from falls annually. One of the leading indications of potential death is the inability to get up after falling and the subsequent time spent on the floor. One might expect that a device like RoomMate with real-time notification by its mobile APP should be standard-of-care for the millions of people at risk of falling.
