Motorola Provides Two-Way Radio Technology for the Healthcare and Assisted Living Industries

Motorola continues to offer compact business two-way radios: the Motorola CLS Business Radio Series. Recognizing the need for a compact, easy-to-use solution, Motorola CLS Series business two-way radios provide healthcare and assisted living users the ability to instantly communicate while maintaining superior service for residents and patients.

The Motorola CLS Series radios have been designed to answer the growing demand of healthcare and assisted living users who are looking for a lightweight and affordable wireless communication solution to help maintain efficiency and increase responsiveness for residents. With an easily accessible Push-To-Talk (PTT) button on the front of the radio combined with the headset accessory, users can have instant access to co-workers and can easily manage activities like dispensing medication, coordinating meals and responding to emergencies with hands-free convenience (hands-free available on the 1410 model with optional accessory). “Our healthcare and assisted living customers continually look to us to provide the next-generation in business communication.

We developed the new CLS Series of radios to bring our customers a product that will enhance their business productivity and increase service and satisfaction for residents,” said - more- Motorola marketing communications manager, Rafael Rivera. “Motorola customers can be confident that they can now get the reliable two-way communication that they need in a compact lightweight form.” Designed for non-stop environments like healthcare and assisted living facilities, the CLS two-way radios are durable and lightweight. Weighing just under five ounces, the radios can be worn or held for long periods of time without burdening the user, allowing them to keep up with constantly changing surroundings and demands.

The rechargeable Lithium Ion batteries provide the CLS with up to 12 hours of battery life, outlasting a typical eight-hour work shift. Incorporating features designed specifically for everyday work conditions, the CLS Series is ideal for healthcare and assisted living use. Operating on 56 business exclusive frequencies and featuring 121 codes, the CLS will help ensure a clear signal is readily available (FCC license required) throughout the property. Drop-in charging (charger included standard with each radio) and optional CCS (Cloning, Charging, Storage) Station help keep CLS radios centrally located and charged.

In even the busiest location, healthcare and assisted living users can rely on CLS two-way radios for continuous communication.
