MedHab Seeks Pre-orders for Fall Prevention/Alert Device

MedHab's MyNotifi hit the web on December 15, 2017.  A promotional piece states:

MyNotifi® is a one-of-a-kind medical alert wristband. They can keep living the active lifestyle they love. You can rest easy knowing you’ll be instantly notified if they ever need your help.
2018 is the year for MedHab to use the remaining $2.9 million in economic development funds, courtesy of the City of San Angelo Development Corporation.  Where will MyNotifi fit into the mix?

Update 2-22-18:  San Angelo's Standard Times ran a nice piece on MedHab's newest device on February 5th.  It casually mentioned StepRite's FDA approval, a key step in adding over 270 local jobs.  Oddly FDA approval wasn't newsworthy enough to make MedHab's website.  Apparently high tech rehab is yesterday's news for CEO Johnny Ross.  Our local paper was silent on the $2.9 million economic development agreement but mentioned Ross plans to "add up to 50 jobs."  The hot product is fall prevention/detection for seniors. I suspect many of us will become seniors waiting for MedHab to fulfill its lofty employment promises.  MedHab investor, board member and former City of San Angelo Mayor Alvin New is now a member of the Texas Transportation Commission.  MedHab inked a $3.6 million economic development deal while New served as Mayor.

Update 10-13-18: ran a story on MyNotifi which stated "MedHab is a San Angelo, Texas-based device manufacturer that specializes in remote, wearable technology. MyNotifi is their third product, following two innovative shoe insole devices – Steprite and RPM2 – that assist with physical therapy and gauging sports performance, respectively.

Update 4-7-19:   Medhab founder Johnny Ross told the Standard Times he hoped to hire 50 more employees by the end of 2018.
