TRUMBULL, Conn., September 28, 2023 (Newswire.com) - FallCall Solutions, a CT tech startup committed to making safety accessible and affordable for all, announced today that their medical alert safety app, FallCall Detect, now supports Crash Detection for iPhone 14 and later models. This new integration into an independent 24/7 emergency monitoring center – a world first among safety-tech apps – will add to FallCall’s growing list of features, including their own patented Smart Fall Detection, integrated beacon-based medical alert jewelry and voice-activated Help Calls using Siri.
“Many older adults want to drive and stay independent for as long as they are able,” says Shea Gregg, MD, a trauma surgeon and President and Founder of FallCall Solutions. “Given the increasing use of mobile and wearable technology in this population, we were fortunate to work with Apple on integrating their extraordinary Crash Detection technology into the FallCall platform. This will ultimately provide older adults and their loved ones with peace of mind that they can get help from our trained emergency medical dispatch partners following a motor vehicle crash.”
FallCall customers who subscribe to Central Monitoring are connected to Mytrex medical dispatchers who assess the fall or crash, communicate with caregivers, and send medical help when needed. “Mytrex strives to be on the forefront of personal emergency response system (PERS) innovation,” states Ryan Bangerter, Vice President of Business Development for emergency response provider Mytrex, Inc. “With over 35 years of experience providing emergency medical monitoring to our medical alert partners, Mytrex is prepared to support Apple Crash Detection and any future
capabilities that our collaboration with FallCall will produce. FallCall’s unique approach of an app-based solution continues to support our vision of enhancing safety through innovation.”
Crash Detection can run on iPhone 14 and later models simultaneously with FallCall’s Smart Fall Detection on Apple Watch. Additionally, connectivity with Trelawear and Talius pendants is maintained for added peace of mind. “We aim to be the most reliable and trusted personal emergency response platform for older adults and their caregivers in the U.S. and globally,” says Gregg.
FallCall Detect, v3.0 can be downloaded from the Apple App Store, and crash detection monitoring support will be available to subscribers of FallCall’s low-cost monitoring service ($17.99/month) in the United States.
