Blackline Wins New Deal Adding Medical Facilities With Out-Patient Care to Their Loner GPS™ Roster of Enterprise Deployments

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 30, 2010) - Lone Worker Safety Solutions Inc. and Blackline GPS (TSX VENTURE:BLN) are pleased to announce the implementation of Loner GPS™ for use within three US based neurological rehabilitation treatment facilities in Texas and California for patient monitoring and safety measures. 

The treatment facilities are highly effective, aimed at delivering the world's highest quality brain injury rehabilitation programs, including long term care options that focus on improving quality of life and independent living. Outpatient care is a significant part of the rehabilitation process and long term care for patients with neurological injury. "The Loner safety instrument performed superbly, and during patient evaluations it was reportedly easy to use and highly responsive, resulting in improved care and outsourced supervision for patients", said Brad McIntosh, President of Lone Worker Safety Solutions Inc.

"Loner is a product that clearly spans a wide variety of uses that can be applied worldwide. The use of Loner in this case is a testament to this ever expanding market beyond the products core use for lone worker safety. We're proud to be able to improve patient care giving within those out-of-facility environments and offer patients the peace of mind that help is only the press of a button away", said Clark Swanson, President & CEO of Blackline GPS.

The Loner product is used to monitor outpatient recipients, offering treatment centers and hospitals a high quality and robust solution for extended care and residential treatment. Family members of patients can rest assured that their loved one is monitored with a safety instrument that will also provide the patients' location in the event of a problem.

"We are excited about our relationship with Blackline and the responsiveness in the market to the Loner GPS™ product. In the short time since establishing our relationship for the distribution of the Loner safety product, we have participated in the sale of Loner to companies ranging from the transportation industry to industrial gas to the medical field. We're increasingly optimistic about the capabilities and markets that this product will address," said Mr. McIntosh.
