FUNCTIONALITIES

Functionality Description
Fall Detection The algorithm embedded in the APP detects when a fall happens to the person carrying the mobile phone, and sends a message to the carer(s) indicating the event and a Google map link with the location where it happened.  The APP allows a number of seconds for the person to cancel the alert message, in case of a false alarm (configurable directly on the application and also on the web portal)
Quick Calls (only with the EMA Easy Version) The simplified interface allows quick calls to 4 selected contacts (usually informal or formal caregivers). The contacts are presented with a photograph (or logo) and the call is launched just by touching the image (contacts and emergency numbers and images are configurable directly on the application and also on the web portal)
Emergency In-Calls When any of the caregivers calls the user and the call is not answered within a pre-determined number of seconds (configurable), the call is automatically answered by the mobile phone of the user through the speakerphone function.
Safety Ratio A safety radius can be established around the home of the care-receiver (mobile phone user). When the person moves beyond that radius a message is automatically send to the caregivers indicating that the person has moved out of the safety zone (this radius is configurable directly on the application and also on the web portal)
Safety Hours Safety hours can be established so that when the care-receiver is outside of the safety radius during those hours, a message is automatically sent to the carers indicating that the care-receiver is outside of their safety radius i.e. has not returned within the safety zone within the agreed time.(these hours are configurable directly on the application and also on the web portal)
Location Query The caregivers can consult the location of the mobile phone of the care-receiver at any moment  through the EMA portal
Low-Battery When the mobile phone battery reaches a certain charge level a message is send to the caregivers (the required level is configurable directly on the application and also on the web portal)
Caregivers Planner In order to facilitate a better coordination when multiple caregivers are involved, it is possible to define which type of alerts are sent to specific caregivers, and during which days and hours of the week. This is configurable though the web portal.
Printable Reports The web portal records all events (falls, location, calls…) and portal interactions (parameter modifications by any of the caregivers using the portal). A simple printable report can be generated using the web portal.
