TRUMBULL, Conn., Jan. 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- FallCall Solutions, LLC announced today that its upgraded flagship application, ElderCheck Now® will be offered for free for a limited time on the Apple App Store (normally $5.99). ElderCheck Now is a simplified communication application built specifically for elders to share well-being, heart rate, and location information with their loved ones by pressing a single button on their Apple Watch® or iPhone®.
"ElderCheck Now was built to create a new kind of electronic relationship between caregivers and their loved ones," claims Shea Gregg, MD, founder of FallCall Solutions. "By offering our new version for free, we wanted people of all ages to experience an application that can make wearables simple to communicate with. Through the press of a button, a loved one can relay more key information to their caregiver than a phone call!"
After securely linking to an elder's mobile device, a caregiver can check in with them anytime, anywhere without a subscription. After receiving the request, an elder can let their caregiver know whether or not they are ok, what their heart rate is, and their location with the press of a button. ElderCheck Now's baseline features include easy to read screens, scheduled check-ins, check-in history menus, color adjustment to enhance button visualization, and security that protects the caregiver and elder electronic relationship.
New features include:
-A faster and more reliable interface for Watch OS 3 (and above) and iOS 10 (and above)
-New notification system: Totally rebuilt to ensure communication reliability
-Repeat Check-in feature: Elders will receive automated repeat check-ins until they respond
-More peace of mind
"Telemonitoring is going to play an increasingly important role in healthcare. It has been shown to reduce hospitalizations and potentially avoid emergency situations," states Dr. Gregg. "ElderCheck Now allows consumers to participate in this evolution today and the interface itself will be the basis for our company's future telemonitoring system."
FallCall Solutions is a company founded by physicians that builds simplified communication apps for seniors and caregivers on the Apple Ecosystem. ElderCheck Now will be offered for free throughout the duration of their crowd funding campaign aiming to raise funds for FallCall Now™, one of the first "smart" fall detectors made exclusively for Apple Watch.
