Dallas-based AT&T will provide wireless connectivity for a new personal monitoring device from start-up vendor BlueLibris Inc., Menlo Park, Calif.

The wearable device enables caregivers to monitor the location of children or seniors, and enables hospitals to locate patients. Consumers can use the device to track walking or running distance and physiological measurements.

The device, connected to a call center, also can be used to detect falls or send medication reminders. A button on the device connects the user to servers, where voice, activity and sensor information are routed to a caregiver.

More information is available at bluelibris.com.
