KruGlu, Inc to Launch Vivo a text message based emergency identification and alert system
SAN MATEO, CA, Feb 14, 2014 - KruGlu, Inc, announced today that it will launch Vivo, a text message based emergency identification and alert system that will greatly benefit children, elderly, adventurous folks and people with special needs.
Vivo is a simple, yet extremely fast way to help identify a person and simultaneously notify their emergency contacts if they are hurt or lost. In an emergency first responders will be able to text a unique Vivo identification number and receive pre-authorized, user controlled, information almost immediately (depending on wireless coverage). Designated emergency contacts will receive a text message indicating that the person with the Vivo ID has been involved in an emergency. This real-time identification enables first responders to potentially modify and properly treat patients based on medical details such as an allergy to penicillin or other medical condition and enables emergency contacts to communicate in minutes, not hours, with first responders to obtain valuable information such as patient status, update, or destination.
"SMS is the number one most widely used data application in the world and 90% of all text messages are read within 3 minutes" explains Tyler Smith, co-founder. "As a father, I wanted to create a service that better protects my daughter and gives me piece of mind knowing should anything happen while on a field trip or traveling with friends, a first responder has everything they need to properly treat her. As a grandson, I wanted a service that better protects my Grandma who has Alzheimer's and safely returns her to our family. Every year, over 500,000 people are taken to the hospital without identification, unconscious, or unable to speak. Vivo can provide the details first responders need to potentially save the life of someone you love."
Unlike other emergency identification services, Vivo does not use human operators or a voice prompted systems. Instead, Vivo uses SMS to provide valuable "visual" information that a first responder will not have trouble hearing, will not have to write down, and will provide current patient information. Users have the ability to change or update their profile at any time, which provides first responders with the most current and accurate information. For the past year, Vivo has been working on the software, has a working alpha version, and will soon launch a beta program. Available now, pre-order this innovative service on Indiegogo.
