NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., Nov. 29 /CNW/ -- Diabetes Response Service, the
first and only pro-active emergency response system, launches in the United
States and Canada December 1st, 2007 providing scheduled daily phone call
support from live operators who monitor the subscribers to prevent
hypoglycemia and complications such as seizures, brain cell death and physical
death. Diabetes Response Service provides customizable scheduled text message
reminders to help manage and control blood glucose levels and medication.
Diabetes Response Service was created by Rick Clark, a type 1 diabetic,
his son Josh T. Clark and family friend Aaron Clem -- both former USC
"Traditional emergency response systems are counter-intuitive to
diabetics," Rick stated. "When a diabetic's blood sugar levels are low, the
diabetic can pass out or go into seizures. At that point, the diabetic cannot
push a button or activate 911."
Diabetes Response Service designed a solution that provides monitoring
service calls. If a diabetic cannot answer the phone after several attempts,
Diabetes Response Service alerts a subscriber's personal contacts on file. The
contacts can raise the diabetic's blood glucose levels preventing
complications in a timely manner, reducing ambulance fees and medical costs.
If the diabetic's contacts cannot be reached, Diabetes Response Service,
supporting advanced FCC & NENA 911 service, dispatches an ambulance to the
subscriber's address on file.
Josh explained, "Parents call kids in college. Children call elderly
parents. Friends call friends. Neighbors call neighbors. People use their own
support service, but there are complications. Your friends and neighbors can't
always be there when you need them, they can forget to call, and commonly feel
Diabetes Response Service offers a support system that is personalized
and customizable through an easy to use online control panel to update
schedules, phone and text services and information, along with an on/off
feature that can pause service calls.
Aaron added, "A diabetic can sign up online or with a customer service
representative. No special device is needed. The subscriber is billed a flat
monthly fee per call, or text and has the ability to select how many service
calls they want in addition to their time zone, address, call schedule and
friend and family contact information which is all stored in a central call
"We want to give diabetics security and independence," Rick stated.
