When an emergency occurs, time is of the essence. How long it takes for an ambulance and emergency doctor to arrive, however, is influenced by lots of external factors, like the actual amount of ongoing emergency missions. umlaut joined forces with Corpuls (GS Elektromedizinische Geräte G. Stemple GmbH, Germany) to develop a lifesaving app that would ultimately substantially accelerate emergency first response - Corhelper.
Next level emergency response.
Corhelper is an international emergency alert system for life-savers. Via the app-based first-aider system, the control center in charge can notify qualified first-aiders located within the immediate vicinity of a time-critical emergency. An additional web-based platform allows the efficient management of alert categories (number of aiders, appropriate qualifications etc.) as well as an in-depth user management of the Corhelper community.
The system’s uniqueness lies in its technical power: where other applications stop, ours is only just warming up. umlaut takes life-saving technology to the next level by realizing cross-regional and system-independent alarms. It enables municipalities to collaborate and identify professional life-savers from specific regions to be informed about an emergency.
Every second counts.
As an example, in case of a cardiovascular arrest the control center in charge alerts all life-savers within a radius of several municipalities, no matter what rescue application they use. This is crucial in a situation where every second matters and CPR need to be applied.
Registered first aiders are alarmed as well as the professional rescue service and the application helps them to perform life-saving measures. The app combines the functions of GPS positioning as well as manual or automatic alerts with telemedical support during resuscitation - thus bridging the vital time until professional rescue services arrive.
