The VerticalMan App checks the Man Down situation, allows to continuously monitor the posture of the worker. If the inclination exceeds an angle and it is maintained for a period of time, VerticalMan warns locally with a visual and an acoustic alarm and notifies it remotely (via SMS, web service, email, phone or VoIP call ).
- The user has some seconds (configurable) to stop the alarm and prevent a wrong remote notification.
- The Android device with VerticalMan must be worn on belt with an opportune case for the device.
- The application also controls the worker’s immobility, the device’s battery charge and the connectivity availability for remote notifications.
- The targets of this system are principally lone workers, who haven’t a colleague and who operate without continuous contact with other people.
