AMS Homecare Inc.: Heart and Respiration Rate Monitor for Elder Care and Health Care Applications

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Jan. 20, 2006) - AMS Homecare Inc. (OTCBB:AHCKF), is pleased to announce that significant progress has been made in the development of the Heart and Respiration Rate Monitor for Elder care and Health care applications.

The Heart and Respiration Rate Monitor (HRRM) developed by Wireless 2000 is to be exclusively distributed by AMS Homecare to the Healthcare market in North America. The device uses Wireless 2000's unique patent pending technology to allow the monitoring of individuals in Elder Care and Health Care Centers. The HRRM is to be strapped to the bed frame underneath the patient's bed (no modifications to the bed required) and behind the backrest of the patient's wheelchair in the facility to monitor individuals when they are in bed or in a wheelchair.

The HRRM measures an individual's heart rate (beats/min) and respiration rate (breaths/min) and continuously relays this information to a monitoring facility, such as a nursing station via a wireless communication module built into the HRRM.

If the individual stops breathing and his/her heart stops beating for longer than 20 sec, an alarm indication is sent to the monitoring station. "There are many uses for this Monitor including the monitoring of individuals with breathing/respiratory problems, sleeping problems and also as a high level baby monitor that will help to prevent SIDS," said Mr. Harj Gill, CEO.

The monitoring device consists of a UWB (Ultra Wideband) transceiver, a directional antenna, signal processing software and a wireless communication module. We are expecting in the next few months to outline a commercialization strategy as well as providing more information about the product.

The company is pleased to have received recognition from Square Trade for its 65Plus Website ( Square Trade is the leading provider of online shopping services addressing the "trust deficit" in ecommerce.
