Vigil Releases the Vitality Care System

VICTORIA, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 5, 2011) - Vigil Health Solutions Inc. ("Vigil") (TSX VENTURE:VGL) is pleased to announce the release of its latest technology – the Vitality Care System™. The Vitality Care System uses innovations in wireless and hardwired technology to provide unobtrusive monitoring of senior living residents. Designed to appeal to the resident, the system features a new, discreet 'mini pendant'. Considerably smaller than comparable technology the pendant takes advantage of new wireless standards to facilitate longer battery life and reliability in a compact design.

"Many of today's senior living residents are sophisticated consumers with busy and active social lives. Our goal was to provide them with an inconspicuous, modern technology that would fit with their core values while meeting the facility's need to provide a secure and safe environment," explained Troy Griffiths, President & CEO, Vigil Health Solutions.

As with Vigil's previous wireless system, the Vitality Care System™ is designed to alert caregivers or security staff when a resident is in need of assistance, identify who the resident is, and provide a general description of his or her location. When residents require assistance they simply press the button on their wireless personal transmitter. Care staff are notified via silent pagers, wireless phones or other handheld devices. The system is scalable, suitable for use in small buildings or large campuses and the open architecture is designed to enable integration with future product offerings.

The Vitality Care System™ utilizes new wireless standards that have resulted in industry leading low power consumption and therefore minimal battery changes. The low power consumption combined with innovative design has also enabled the use of a smaller more discreet pendant meeting the needs of today's seniors for unobtrusive monitoring.
