SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwired - Mar 31, 2014) - After making early strides in the hospital security market with its enhanced ProV2 non-lethal (ENL) device, Guardian 8 Corporation, a wholly owned subsidiary of Guardian 8 Holdings (OTCQB: GRDH), announced it will showcase the device and how it addresses the risks and liabilities associated with hospital security response during the International Association of Hospital & Safety (IAHSS) 2014 Annual General Meeting, which is scheduled for May 18-21 at the Hyatt Regency La Jolla in San Diego, California. Guardian 8 works with hospitals in Connecticut, Ohio and California, which have provided testimonials about how the Pro V2 contributes to staff safety.
"IAAHS and its sister foundation IHSSF are currently in the process of surveying their constituents about the tools they use when responding to security incidents and the challenges they face as a result of state and local laws restricting the tools they can use," said Paul Hughes, COO of Guardian 8. "Hospitals are often overlooked as a location for workplace violence, but their security teams must respond to patient, visitor and staff issues with the same level of professionalism and control. We are very pleased that our Pro V2 is a legal option for hospital security officers in all 50 states."
Guardian 8 is a Bronze sponsor of IHSSF, which partners with research institutions on matters involving hospital safety and security. The Pro V2 has been in service since 2013 and company management believes that a documented field use of the product in a hospital is imminent.
The Pro V2 ENL device emphasizes a layered defense concept for security staff that become the unwilling participants in an increasingly dangerous situation. The Pro V2 is a sophisticated pepper spray device that also captures digital evidence, such as video and audio recordings, and provides two-way communication capabilities via the Bluetooth® connection with a cell phone. The device has flexible programming that enables trained supervisors to configure the unit to comply with any local surveillance laws. To see how the Pro V2 works, visit the demo video.
