Medical Alarm Concepts Holding, Inc. Announces FCC Approval for iHelp+ 3G Mobile Medical Alert Device

KING OF PRUSSIA, PA--(Marketwired - May 17, 2016) - Medical Alarm Concepts Holding, Inc. (OTCQB: MDHI), a Pennsylvania-based personal medical alarm device manufacturer, is pleased to announce FCC approval and certification for its new iHelp+ 3G mobile medical alert device.

FCC testing of the iHelp+ 3G has been completed and certification has been granted -- FCC ID #XWI-CS399. This certification includes the cellular, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth radio modules within the device, and greatly furthers the iHelp+ 3G's commitment to wearable health technology.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) is an independent United States government agency that is directly responsible to Congress. The FCC was established by the Communications Act of 1934 and is charged with regulating interstate and international communications by radio, television, wire, satellite and cable. The FCC's jurisdiction covers the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and U.S. possessions. FCC certification is required for radio frequency devices, or electronic products manufactured or sold in the United States. The FCC mark certifies that the electromagnetic interference from the device is under limits approved by the FCC.

"FCC certification is the next step getting the iHelp+ 3G mobile medical alert device to market," said Steven Beeferman, VP of Sales & Marketing. "We are very excited and completely reassured that this product is well-designed, well-made, and safe for use by the general public."

To date, the iHelp+ 3G is FCC and CE certified. CE meets the standards and requirements of the European Commission and allows for sales within Europe. PTCRB (required for launching cellular devices on North American GSM carriers) and IC (Canada's equivalent of FCC) testing are ongoing.

The iHelp+ 3G pilot program is scheduled to begin in June 2016.
