Main Digest

Disabled motorists are being urged to stay safe, thanks to a new iPhone app which allows peace of mind for loved-ones, without compromising the independence of the user.

Lookout Call, which is already widely used commercially by lone workers across the UK, is being opened up to individual use and made available via Apple's App Store, in a bid to improve the safety of disabled motorists.

With millions of disabled motorists, across the UK, their safety is of paramount concern to loved-ones. It is here that Lookout Call comes into its own, allowing friends and family to be reassured that their loved-one has the tools to help enhance their safety, without being an overbearing presence in their lives.

Individuals use their mobile phone to provide regular spoken updates describing their location and planned activity. They also input an estimation of the length of time their activity will last. This causes a timed countdown to begin. At any point during the countdown, they can press the safe button and enter their PIN to deactivate the countdown.

If a countdown expires, the protection system phones the individuals to prevent a false alarm being triggered. If the individual fails to deactivate the alarm, the system enters an alert mode. When in alert mode, the system alerts the individuals nominated 'Responders' (their friends, family and loved ones) and replays the message left earlier. Responders are prompted to confirm their intention to take appropriate action, and the app confirms immediately that help is on the way.

Unique to Lookout Call and unlike other similar alarm systems on the market, Lookout Call will alert the friends, family and loved ones, regardless of geographical distance even if the individual's phone is out-of-battery, lost or even destroyed.

Lookout Call Sales and Marketing Director John Wood says:

"Lookout Call has already proven itself as an efficient, cost-effective and reliable personal alert system for people who are repeatedly placed in vulnerable situations. As such, we are delighted that we can offer this world-class technology and subsequent peace of mind, to disabled motorists."
