FallCall Medical Alert App Comes to Android

FallCall Solutions, a technology startup that develops communication solutions for the elderly and their caregivers, recently announced that its flagship personal emergency response app, FallCall Lite, is now available for Android-powered mobile phones as a free download via Google Play.

The Android version reportedly will provide a version of the FallCall app with the additional ability to allow elders and caregivers to communicate, regardless of mobile platform.

“For over a year, FallCall has sought to remove the stigma surrounding personal emergency response systems by offering a downloadable medical alert app that operates on the world's most popular wearable and mobile devices,” said Shea Gregg, MD, Founder and President, FallCall Solutions. “We now have hundreds of Elders and Caregivers who are using our app who have provided us with valuable feedback. As a result of their input, FallCall Lite for Android was built.”

With FallCall Lite for Android, the pairing process is now completely platform agnostic, the company said. Apple Watch and iPhone users can invite any caregiver into their Care Group, or vice versa.

“Elder injuries from falls continue to grow, and no one should feel alone when a fall happens,” Gregg said. “With more Elders aging in place and adopting mobile and wearable technologies, medical alert systems don't need to be something worn around your neck or hidden under your sleeve. We are honored that FallCall has become the emergency response application that hundreds of users trust. With the addition of FallCall Lite for Android, safety monitoring is now without limits.”
