The Client

FallCall is a Connecticut-based startup founded by physicians who wanted to provide elders and their caregivers with an alternative to the bulky (and often stigmatized) “help button.” They offer simple, downloadable monitoring and communication systems for mobile devices.

“Working with the Vitalsphere team was an absolute pleasure. Their understanding of iOS and WatchOS is world class and their ability to tackle challenges on each of these platforms led to app performance enhancements that were greatly appreciated by our management team and our users. They are readily accessible and personable regardless of the problem. I highly recommend Vitalsphere to anyone in need of a highly competent app development team!”

- Shea C. Gregg, MD FACS, Founder and President
