LOUISVILLE -- Inovonics, an industry leader in high-performance wireless sensor networks, announced the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office recently awarded Inovonics two design patents for its EN1221S-60 family of senior living pendants.Inovonics_logoUSE

Launched in September 2015, the EN1221S-60 pendant is 60% smaller and lighter than Inovonics' previous pendant. Attractive and discreet, the pendant has a smooth shape and polished finish that makes it comfortable for continuous use, Inovonics said.

It is also waterproof, allowing residents to safely shower or bathe while wearing the pendant. The EN1221S-60 functions over the proven EchoStream® wireless network and is certified for use in UL 2560 listed emergency call systems marketed by Inovonics' business partners, the company said.

"The product was designed in collaboration with residents and caregivers at selected senior living communities across the country,” said Todd Stanley, Inovonics senior product manager.

“Over a period of nine months, they shared their insights and challenged us to deliver a product that improves resident satisfaction and staff productivity.

“These patents are a tribute to their commitment, and we are grateful for their assistance."
