TRUMBULL, Conn., June 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- FallCall Solutions, a CT tech startup committed to creating simplified communication solutions for elders and caregivers on the Apple ecosystem, was selected to appear on Apple Music's new series Planet of the Apps. Their app, FallCall Now, plans to bring "smart" fall detection that is research backed and patent pending exclusively to Apple Watch. Plans are also in place to incorporate such advanced capabilities as machine learning to create personalized fall detection, and deep learning to improve recognition of falls for their users.
"When you are a physician, you have the honor of treating individual patients," states Shea Gregg, MD, president of FallCall Solutions. "As physicians who hear the tragic stories of elder fall victims on a daily basis, my co-founder and spouse, Kristin Gregg, MD, and I felt obligated to do something more for the aging population and their families. Building this app will allow us to create something that is unlike any fall detection system on the market and ultimately allow us to provide peace of mind for more people than we could ever imagine."
"Being on the show was one of the most inspirational moments of our lives," states Dr. Kristin Gregg. "From the moment you walked onto the set, every member of crew wanted you to be comfortable and to succeed. In regards to the other app developers, we immediately became friends because we all shared the drive behind entrepreneurship and the dream of creating something that could change peoples' lives. Finally, to be able to pitch our idea to Jessica Alba, Gwyneth Paltrow, Gary Vaynerchuk and will.i.am was surreal. The experience and the result taught us a lot about what it takes to bring our vision to the population we care so much about."
Since participating in Planet of the Apps, FallCall Solutions has raised seed money from accredited investors and crowd funding to begin building FallCall Now. They have launched a Kickstarter campaign to complete the application.
Drs. Shea and Kristin Gregg describe Planet of the Apps as, "an honest view into the hearts and souls of entrepreneurial app developers and genuinely inspirational. A must-watch."
New episodes of Planet of the Apps are released every Tuesday evening exclusively on Apple Music.
