Keeping in mind the security and medical emergency, the phone features an SOS button for emergency ensuring that their loved ones are never far away. Extending its usability beyond the elderly, Sathi offers Braille support for the visually impaired. The phone is equipped with a powerful 1800 mAh battery, curbing the need to charge it frequently.

Sathi also offers 2 bonus features bearing in mind the unique needs and everyday lifestyle of the elderly. First, it is the only phone in its segment to offer a Bluetooth dialer that allows users to connect this phone with their smart phone, and make/receive a call without touching their smart phone. Second, is the Alerts feature that allows users to set alerts according to their preference. E.g. water alert or medicine alert
Speaking on the launch, Goutam Kumar Jain, Co-Founder, M-tech Informatics Ltd, said, ‘ Elderly in general and our parents in particular deserve the best just the way they ensured the best for us when we were young. The elderly have unique requirements and need care and support at every step. They need to stay connected with their loved ones, ensure personal safety and be entertained. In short, they need a phone that can be effortlessly used, is specifically designed for them and is affordable. The M-tech Sathi has been designed keeping in mind these unique needs including affordability, while providing peace of mind to their family. The Sathi is our sincere tribute to the elderly. ’
