What it does
Bringing a solution to the problem of limited and expensive health care options for the Elderly. This hassle-free App alerts Emergency Contacts and Emergency Personnel via a text message and location when a fall is detected.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We ran into issues with integrating Twilio API into our application because of issues with packages. We also had to figure out a way of detecting a fall by utilizing the phone's accelerometer data.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We're proud of building a working prototype of our product in 24 hours!
What we learned
Swift, XCode, Twilio API
What's next for Fall Detector
