HDB Services Group Reaches Agreement With ALR Technologies to Provide the ALRT500 Disease Management Compliance Reminder and Monitoring System to Selected Chronic Care Patient Population

New ALRT500 Can Help the Elderly Remain Independent Much Longer

WINSTON-SALEM, NC -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 20, 2006 -- ALR Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB: ALRT) is pleased to announce that the HDB Services Group, Inc., based in LaGrange, KY, has selected the ALRT500 Medication Compliance Reminder and Home Health monitoring system for use with its chronic care patient population. HDB Services Group plans to implement the ALRT system in the 3rd quarter of 2006.

According to Steve Stafford, Executive Director of HDB Services Group, "One of the key factors for the elderly to remain independent is for them to be compliant with health and disease management activities and treatments, and noncompliance is prevalent with this population. Noncompliance can be due to memory loss, busy lifestyle as well as the sheer number of actions people must take to stay healthy. We believe the ALRT500 compliance system will help keep them on their regimens and allow for them to remain independent much longer."

"Another value of the ALRT system is that the children of our clients will be able to remotely monitor their parents to see that they're doing what is needed," reports Mr. Stafford.
