FallCall, Mytrex bring personal emergency response to the iPhone and Apple Watch

FallCall Solutions, the creator of the FallCall Lite app for Apple Watch and iPhone, has teamed up with Mytrex — a provider of monitoring services in the Personal Emergency Response System (PERS) market — to bring fully-integrated emergency medical monitoring services into the Apple ecosystem, including the iPhone and Apple Watch.

“When developing FallCall Lite, we wanted to change the way subscribers access the highest quality 24/7 personal emergency monitoring in the country,” says Shea Gregg, MD President of FallCall Solutions.  “No longer will users need to fill out paperwork or fax updated subscriber lists to a central monitoring provider.  FallCall Lite’s integration with Mytrex allows our customers to sign-up, change responders and maintain their subscriptions-all electronically.”



FallCall Lite is free and available at the Apple App Store. Standard features include voice activation with Siri, automatic “Elder Watch Battery Charge” updates for Caregivers, plus “Help Calls” to up to five care group members, with location and heart rate information.   

The central monitor subscription ($14.99) adds access to trained and certified Emergency Medical Dispatchers (EMD) 24 hours a day.  Additionally, the monitoring service will send situational updates to Care Group members as an emergency event is unfolding.
