Fade is a mobile application designed and developed by ITER, S.A. able to detect falls using the information collected by some of your mobile sensors such as the accelerometer. Fade has been designed for people might be under risks of falling in an isolated environment without any supervision. This makes the application ideal for bikers, motorcyclist, working at heights, hikers or elders.
Fade can be configured to issue an alert message to a predefined contact after a fall detection, reporting the time and place where the accident occurred, using the device's geolocation tools. This information, which may be sent to the selected contact via SMS and email, can be vital in emergencies as indicated for numerous studies by the leading authorities in the field of emergency services. Fade also allows for a phone call to that contact with automatic activation of the device's speaker.
Fade has been tested in Pabellón Municipal de Deportes Miguel A. Díaz Molina, Puerto de la Cruz, Tenerife with Master Saha C. Afonso, International Coach of Kung Fu with over 20 years of experience. With the knowledge of the Master Saha on different falling techniques and his experience as a stunt specialist, a complete and effective application has been produced. The following video summarizes the testing process that the application was subject to with the collaboration of Master Saha.
Fade is an application being currenly tested. Although it has been thoroughly tested, a 100% success rate in detecting falls or accidents is not guaranteed. ITER S.A. will not take responsibility on any bad use of the application by the user.
