As part of Health & Fitness month, we thought we’d take a quick look at what safety conscious mobile services company, GreatCall, are offering vulnerable iOS users to ensure they feel safer in their own homes.

5Star Urgent Response by GreatCall is one such app that updates the personal safety alarm concept to the iOS era and makes it all the more vital a tool for those who are vulnerable and less able than they used to be.

The app allows its users in times of need to contact a highly-trained Certified Response Agent at the tap of a button. The agent can then identify the user and their location, conference in family or friends to help, access a nurse or provide any extra assistance that may be needed. They can also contact 911 emergency services if need be but GreatCall empathise that the user shouldn’t treat the app as a replacement to 911, it’s more of a supplement.

Each user has a personal profile that allows the agent to know about things like pre-existing medical condition and emergency contact details so it’s a very safe service. There’s also the provision of a 24/7 LiveNurse advice service and email functionality.

Ultimately, it’s peace of mind for the user and their loved ones. The app is $14.99 and $14.99 a month thereafter.

For other users with medical conditions, GreatCall has provided MedCoach, a free app that helps the user keep track of what medications they need to take and at what time of day.

Simple to use and with regular reminders and alerts, MedCoach will even allow users to connect to their pharmacy when it’s time to get a new prescription. Linked to the First DataBank national drug database, it’s also possible to look up medication as well as dosage for advice.

MedCoach is out now and it’s free to download.

However, for people that do have those modern smartphones with all those advanced features, GreatCall have released an app called MedCoach which is designed to help keep track of medications for users in need of an app to keep track of this aspect of their lives on a deice that is always with them.

MedCoach allows users to log the medications they take, set up the times and intervals when they’re supposed to take them, and get notifications for when it is time to take their medication, no matter what type it is, from pills to injections and more. Users will get push notifications, and the badge of the MedCoach icon will update when it is time to take a medication. When the app is launched, users can view their reminders to take medication, log when they took the medication, with the ability to list reasons if they skipped taking it. It’s possible to view a medication’s information with the ability to view a medication’s facts and possible side effects. It’s possible to edit and modify the list of medication and times to take them, as well.

The app offers easy access to the latest notifications from the bottom of the app on most screens.
